Ascog Hall

Description

The outstanding feature of this three acre garden is the Victorian Fernery, a sunken structure fed by natural spring waters and housing many fern species, including a 1,000 year old King Fern and thought to be Britain's oldest exotic fern. Rare and unusual species await the visitor wandering the original garden "rooms" while the stables and coach house ruins feed the imagination of long lost times.The garden is generally well labelled and contains a plant hunter's trail.
New for 2017 is the "Golden Crown" Fernery.
