One of England's most romantic gardens, set in a beautiful wooded estate
Designed in the Picturesque style around the ruins of a 14th-century moated castle, the garden has spectacular displays of rhododendrons, azaleas and kalmia in May and June, wisteria and roses rambling over the ruins in summer, and trees and ferns providing rich colour in autumn. There are fine walks through the estate with its parkland, woodland, hop farm, and wonderful vistas and viewpoints
