This garden has been revamped over the last two years. It looks on to a variety of mature Coniferous trees and shrubs, the garden, established in the 1930, now has a split level terrace and patio with ornamental circular fish pond surrounded with mature planting . The recently built terrace is newly planted with climbing roses and clematis. From this top elevation one looks down to the gardens focal point which is a very colourful Japanese maple. Concealed behind this, is a very old Eucryphia (Nymansay) which in late summer bears large white rose like flowers.The terrace and patio offer great views over gently sloping lawns and herbaceous borders, rose beds and a little apple orchard, all seen at their best from early spring to late autumn. Leading down from this are the raised vegetable beds and green house and another patio surrounded by newly constructed beds . The back fence is covered with Russian vines clematis and sweet peas and roses, as are the arches over the grid layout of the paths.
