Houndwood House 1802

Brief Description

Houndwood House has 19th-century garden features, including parkland, an ornamental shrubbery with water features developed in a woodland shelterbelt, yew and holly hedges and kitchen garden walls in the shape of a trapezium. There is also an early-20th-century Japanese garden.


Houndwood House was originally built as a hunting lodge for the Priors of Coldingham in the mid-12th century. The designed landscape was probably first laid out in the 17th century. The policies and gardens were improved during the 19th and early-20th centuries.
