The Rock & Water Gardens

This outstanding example of the Arts and Crafts style of landscape design uses a combination of rock-work and water to create a realistic landform giving views from and under the bridges.

Many tons of red sandstone and grey limestone were used to create two contrasting areas. Mature specimens of “dwarf” conifers are interspersed with a huge variety of appropriate plants including Euphorbia myrsinites, Fascicularia bicolor, Iberis sempervirens and many spring bulbs. It is thought to be one of the largest privately owned rock garden in the country.
