This site is NOT open to public.
Brief description of site
The gardens were laid out by Gertrude Jekyll in 1920, but no plans of the layout have been found. Features include a drive, level lawn (possibly an old tennis court), specimen trees and two small rustic houses. However, there is very little evidence today of Gertrude Jekyll's work in these gardens although the choice of shrub planting appears to be in her style.
Brief history of site
The present house was built in 1901, on the site of an earlier structure. The gardens were laid out by Gertrude Jekyll in 1920.
