Its facade is thought to have been modelled on Chesterfield House , Mayfair , London (demolished 1937) .The design was by Isaac Ware the Palladian arcitect.(1704-1766) There has been a settlement there since at least the 16th Century and Carolside has been cultivated for over 200 years. It has a long history of good gardeners and was a well-known Rose garden in Edwardian days. Today, Carolside is best known for its soft and delicate herbaceous planting in subtle colour schemes, its striking Delphinium beds, its Potager, Secret garden and Winter garden and, of course, its collection of historic roses and National Collection of Gallica roses.
