Heathfield has about 7 hectares of formal and ornamental gardens set in a wooded parkland occupying a further 123 hectares. The site was possibly laid out by Humphry Repton in the late-18th century, with later modifications near the house.
Brief history of site
In 1610, the Dacre family were granted a licence to enclose 243 hectares of wood and pasture at Heathfield. A new mansion was begun on the site in 1676. Humphry Repton was called in to advise in 1793. The park was enlarged and enclosed within a stone wall after 1819. Sir Reginald Blomfield modernised the house after 1895.
