In an idyllic setting, the gardens are a mix of small formal gardens and open parkland with an interesting collection of trees, especially along the woodland walk. The North Forecourt Gardens, planted in 1971, comprise a rectangle of bleached limes outlining a parterre of clipped box and surrounding a central fountain. A walk alongside the River Nadder from the Palladian bridge leads one past the Victorian boathouse, Egyptian column and loggia and continues around the woodland walk before returning via the Water Garden, a series of linking ponds with aquatic and marginal plantings and oriental style bridges. The tour concludes in The English Rose Garden in which a large collection of old fashioned species can be admired.
Entry to the house is required to see the Inner Courtyard which was transformed in 1995 from a plain gravel area by the creation of a new formal garden, only visible from inside the house. Introduced in 2001 were the Laburnum Arch and the Millennium Water Feature, the latter designed by world famous sculptor William Pye. The Inner Courtyard also contains an interesting knot garden. New features planned for 2005 include a physic garden and a miz-maze.
