Much work needed to be carried out to restore this house and working together with Ian Adam Smith Architects and RW Armstrongs, we developed an entirely new garden.


Previously, there were no views of the distant countryside, so old, overgrown planting was removed and new native hedging and park railings installed.


The crown of a lovely old Sweet Chestnut tree was lifted and turned into the centrepiece of a circular lawn. This now forms a focal point from the drawing room, within the newly extended wing of the house. 


A simple lawn and wildflower meadow has been created, with avenues of Cherry and Lime trees focusing views between these areas and the formal garden. The Limes are pollarded each year to create characterful summer and winter structure.


A formal herb garden, parterre and herbaceous borders have all been created, framed by Yew hedging. Raised formal lawns, semi-mature trees, spring bulbs, flowering shrubs and a new drive and entrance courtyard all provide an attractive outlook.
