Details

1, 000 acres of breathtaking landscape filed with temples, statues, lakes and fountains. Inside the walled garden you will find collections of old and new roses, plus ornamental vegetable garden. While the serpentine pathways of Ray Wood reveal seasonal collections rhododendrons, azaleas, magnolias and Pieris. Outdoor-guided tours take place between March and November and these tell the stories of the gardens and architecture. For children there are boat trips on the Great Lake and an adventure playground. Visitors to the gardens can also visit the exhibition wing, house gift shop and self-service restaurant free of charge when the House is open. Additional shops and cafés are available in the Stable Courtyard (open all year).
