The house and garden originate in the 15th century, but the present gardens were created between 1855 and 1865 by Richard Watts. The original moats have been partly filled in and lawned over. Those that do remain are dry and contain shrub borders. Other features include a rose garden and a stream garden. The site originally occupied about 60 hectares but is now reduced to 11 hectares.
