Supplanting the original 18th century garden, the current layout was completed in the 1920’s. A folly castle built in 1822 adds an air of history to its surrounding garden. This garden contains wonderful specimen trees and shrubs, and a collection of azaleas and rhododendrons. Peaceful paths meander along a natural stream where ponds, small waterfalls and sculpture create interest and calm.
The acid soil and temperate climate allow a variety of plants to thrive including some tenders you’ll see eucryphia, hoheria, camellia, pieris, and magnolia mingling with the scented philadelphus.
