Gardens and Pleasure Grounds
The notable feature of the site is an unusual circular garden, believed to be unique. It is enclosed by a stone and cob wall with access through a gated doorway. The wall's thatched coping was replaced in the early 1990s following storm damage.
The circle is approximately 18 metres in diameter, with the surrounding walls about 2.25 metres high. A stream or leat flows south-westwards through the enclosure. The interior was formerly cultivated but is now mainly laid to grass.
Alleron is a Grade II listed property believed to date back, at its oldest part, to the 16th century whilst the Regency front was added in the 19th century. This makes for a very light house, for the most part built with good Georgian proportions, tall ceilings and sash windows.
