The parkland is a stunning setting for a leisurely stroll or high -octane cycle. You can also take a stroll through 50 acres of beautiful gardens reflecting over 250 years of garden design.The gardens are renowned for their remarkable glasshouses, the Japanese Garden, considered the finest in Europe and the extensive Kitchen Gardens, still producing fruit and vegetables today.

- With new plantings, the gardens are constantly evolving and the 10 acre site set amongst sheep -grazed parkland provides plenty of opportunity for innovation. The small Italian Garden, created in 2007 in the ruined Old Tenants' Hall, has a fountain, Italian cypress and olive trees.
