World famous for it’s Camellia Groves, Magnolias, Rhododendron and Hydrangea collections. In summer it is awash with colour.
Since the restoration after the great storm of 1990 many new and exotic plants have been introduced. The garden is now a mixture of formal and informal, with a charming walled garden and spectacular woodland valley views.
Facilities include a Colonial Restaurant for lunches, snacks and drinks, a Plant Centre and quality Gift Shop. Events and concerts are presented during the year.
