Details

The garden includes the largest National Trust's limestone rock garden, where colours change with the passing of the seasons. It also has four National Collections of Hardy Ferns and a kitchen garden with bees and hens. A bird hide and feeding area, as well as a network of footpaths, guided walks and orienteering, are available in the wider estate. Children can enjoy a natural play trail, pond dipping and quizzes. Its timeless atmosphere makes this the perfect place to relax.
