An unusual octagonal walled kitchen garden, designed by Capability Brown for John Stuart, 3rd Earl of Bute, former Prime Minister and First Director of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Successive owners have added numerous heated glasshouses, most notably the magnificent range built by Mackenzie and Moncur for Sir Julius and Lady Wernher. Now sadly dilapidated, it awaits restoration. The garden is the focus of a fascinating restoration project, with courses and talks offered. Talks and tours of the garden can be organised for groups by prior appointment.
Two acre triangular shaped kitchen garden, with unusually sited vinery (excellently restored) and potting shed in the centre. Traditional vegetables and flowers, including many heritage varieties, are grown. Active garden with ongoing structural renovations and cultivation, where frequent cookery demonstrations, educational events and vegetable sales take place.
Large, privately owned18th century walled garden, set within the Capability Brown landscape park, owned by the National Trust. Several glasshouses, pits have been restored, large dipping pond. Open to the public certain days per week. Interesting and informative website
