This five-acre garden has two-acres of walled garden and three acres of orchard, a spinney and a field with mature trees.

The house and garden have been in the same family for over 90 years, with the gardens evolving over the past 15 years. There are lawns, mixed borders of herbaceous plants, roses and shrubs as well as a maze vegetable garden, swimming pool area, a pleached lime walk and ornamental pear avenue.

The garden was featured in The English Garden magazine in 2020.

There are some gravel paths, steps and slopes but mostly the gardens are wheelchair accessible.
