Brief description of site

The garden surrounding the late-18th century house is formal on the south side and informal on the north. Features include lines of chestnut trees, a pond and several large evergreen oaks. The house is now a bed and breakfast.

Brief history of site

There is a building visible on a map of 1778, so a garden may have existed before the third Duke of Richmond bought the site, laid out the garden and planted the cedars in 1783.
