    Gardens & Parklands

    As caretakers of the land we have allocated half of the 28 acres to natural habitat, protecting and encouraging diverse wildlife. Those 14 acres now have a life of their own, continually increasing in richness and natural diversity. You will find woodlands,wetlands, flower meadows and hedgerows. Come, enjoy the tranquility and beauty. Take time, relax and reconnect with the natural world.
