The garden has several distinct sections. There is the original walled garden, extended early last century, now known as the Spider Garden due to the design of the gate made by the local blacksmith and a cobbled area in the centre designed to mimic a web. These walled areas include lovely herbaceous borders, with clear blocks of colour but all coming together. I found them very pleasing, less formal than some at Felbrigg, more organised than at Dale Farm. There is also a water garden with a lake fed by the River Ash and considerable wooded areas including vast numbers of rhododendrons, a heritage orchard and arboretum. Altogether the garden area totals 80 acres with the rest of the estate being farmed.
