      The gardens have been expertly landscaped by Taylor Tripp Garden Design to provide an idyllic setting with large areas of lawn, perfect for croquet; formal gardens with box hedging and structure; potager garden complete with an Alitex greenhouse and a tennis court screened with pleached trees. There are various areas of terracing, one adjacent to the breakfast room and kitchen, which provides a perfect backdrop overlooking the grounds.
