This is a relaxed, country garden with some significant sample trees (some several hundred years old). Most of the present garden was designed about twenty years ago. Housing two ponds and a swimming pool (not available on the day), the Georgian Manor House looks out onto beautiful lawns which once were the practise areas for an English croquet captain. Another captain, ‘Jack’ Howie, had a miniature railway which ran through the garden down to the main village and there are one or two items in the garden left from those days. There are a number of fruit trees in the garden (sufficient to call it an orchard) and a picnic table in this area is a pleasant spot to sit and watch the ducks and moorhens on the main pond. This lovely garden is enjoyed all year round by the family and we hope you love it too.
