Crowe Hall has villa gardens of 3 hectares, developed on a hillside site in the 19th and 20th centuries.
The gardens have occasional open days in the spring.

Brief history of site

Crowe Hall was built in about 1760 for Brigadier Crowe, and a late 18th century sketch shows it set in informal parkland. The house was re-built in the early-19th century and a framework for a formal terraced garden was laid out.
