Brief history of site
The core of the present house was constructed from 1698. In the 1840s, the house was re-built, along with a greenhouse for orchids. A phase of tree planting took place between 1860 and 1880. Edward John Pemberthy Magor developed the gardens from 1901, particularly planting rhododendrons. The site was let after his death in 1941, but was restored and developed by his son from 1961.
