Estate & Gardens

Our Estate is a haven of tranquillity. A place to grow. With cultivated gardens to inspire, ancient woodland to explore, cherished wildlife to behold, and an abundance of fresh produce to enjoy.

Daily Garden Tour

Starts at 10.30am at the Farmyard. One of our experienced gardeners will guide you through the vast array of planted spaces and enlighten your knowledge of different gardening styles through the ages, whilst stopping to pick, taste, smell and touch the different fruit and veg on offer.

Special Collection Tour

Come on a guided walk, at your convenience, to discover our special collections. Depending on the time of year, guests will be taken to see the ferns and exotica in the Victorian Greenhouse, or for a walk through the Pinetum, or to one of our comprehensive apple tree collections.

Tours are free but must be booked on arrival. 

WALK THE WALK

When visiting us, take advantage of miles of walks through woods and meadows to clear your mind. Please wear trusty shoes and be careful as some surfaces might be slippery when icy or wet.

We have a Deer Park and are blessed with abundant tame and wild birds, so please leave pets at home. (Guide dogs are welcome.)
