The house is set amidst 15 acres of tastefully landscaped gardens.

In spring, carpets of primroses, daffodils, bluebells and orchids cover the grassy banks and shady woodlands. Whilst summer sees the rhododendrons ablaze with colour, a mellower autumn transforms the hues of the trees to a warm gold.

If the weather is fine, reception drinks on arrival can be served on the garden terrace. There, your guests can relax and enjoy canap├ęs with you, whilst the youngsters let off steam or perhaps make use of the croquet lawn. Needless to say, the gardens provide endless opportunities for a long, romantic stroll after dinner.
