We found this easily and there was ample parking. Even though it's december, many plants were still flowering many were labelled as were the trees. The house is unique of all those we have seen so far, in that the rooms look as though the ownerrs have just stepped outside for awhile, many with possessions from the D'oyley Carte occupancy. The staff must have been well looked after with ample quarters . A . fascinating visit , we would love to see more of the gardens in the spring.
Though paths are steep, the gardens are beautifully laid out and the D'oyley Carte passion for plants is illustrated in their choice of plants for the garden, it must have been a joy to look out from their rooms across the gardens and view the sea in the distance.
