Walled Garden

We hope that each time you visit and explore our Walled Garden, you’ll discover something new.

As late summer transitions into early autumn, the herbaceous borders will look their brightest and boldest, filled with striking and diverse displays of exciting flowers and other specimen plants.

The Walled Garden boasts many distinctive and delightful characteristics, with some harking back to the garden’s origins in the 1820s. Delve into every facet of our enchanting Walled Garden, from its aromatic herb garden to its one-of-a-kind sculptures.
