All of our gardens have undergone acclaimed restoration works and provide important examples of gardens in contrasting styles that continue to grow and develop. The restored 17th century watermill complex showcases historic uses of renewable energy alongside the original working mill machinery.

The award-winning visitor facilities include the warm and welcoming Stables Kitchen Cafe with a bright, airy courtyard, gift shop and plant centre.
