The stunning Italianate gardens were laid out in the late 19th Century by Sir George Sitwell 4th Baronet. He was the brilliantly eccentric great-grandfather of the current owner Alexandra Sitwell. Walk around the formal garden enjoying the lawns and borders. Take a stroll down the lime avenue to see “The Angel of Fame”. Relax on one of the benches taking time to take in the beauty and tranquility of the gardens.
Venture further afield through the woodland and down to the lakes. Make use of the map to see “the classical temple” and other areas of interest on the way. The lakes are a haven for wildlife, look out for butterflies, dragonflies, and birds. Follow the path round the lake to take in the stunning views, and then up through the woods back to the lawns.
Throughout the season there are many garden highlights such as bluebells, delphiniums, camellias and roses. Please ask at the garden entrance for directions to the seasonal highlights.
