We provide freely accessible, accurate and inspiring information on the UK parks, gardens and designed landscapes and all activities concerned with their promotion, conservation and management. Additional information and new sites are added as information becomes available.

This website has no statutory authority with regard to planning or other permissions, nor is the inclusion or absence of a site any measure of its historic significance. If you would like to contribute, please contact us.


The gardens are the result of a remarkable partnership between the owner and horticulturalist Reginald Cory (owner 1906-34) and Thomas Mawson. The structure of the gardens, combining the expansively formal and the intricately intimate, survives almost in its entirety, with some later modifications within the general framework. Within the gardens are many notable trees, including some very early introductions. A major restoration programme was underway from 1998 to 2007, when the gardens re-opened. In the longer term, the property is to be leased to the National Trust.
