Four acres of varied gardens surround this moated Georgian house c1727. Re-created old style garden and orchard with newly planted historical varieties of fruit trees to include Winter Queen, Golden Harvey, Black Worcester Pear and Sops in Wine. A raised walkway looks down on a symmetrical Elizabethan style formal grass parterre known as an Enamelled Mead (with pin pricks of flower colour in spring). Courtyard gardens enclosed by the hall's restored barns and stables now providing offices. A formal side garden (known as Little Garden in Georgian Times) is raised above the surrounding moat with box hedging and perennial borders. An avenue of Lime trees leads to an ornamental vegetable garden. Front grass parterre and lime avenue, re-instated iron gates based on originals of 1720's, field beyond and foundations of Georgian summerhouse.
The development of the Halls gardens are ongoing and it is hoped that further research will reveal more details of any original features. Today's gardens are in the main a modern day interpretation.
Our latest project has been the design and production of a Garden seat in the style of William Kent (1685-1748) a landscape designer.
