In the Top 5 Gardens nominated for ‘Garden of the Year’ award in BBC Countryfile Magazine 2019.
The remarkable 18th century landscaping of the Park, its vistas and lakes are by an unknown hand and much has been restored. The celebrated gardens are of great variety with many specimen trees.
The formal and ‘wild’ gardens surrounding and adjacent to the house have been mainly developed during the 20th Century and these developments continue today. A number of distinguished landscape designers have been involved – Robert Weir Schultz, Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe and Dame Sylvia Crowe. The main inspiration came from the late Catherine Macdonald-Buchanan. Projects commissioned by the present owners have been led by garden designers, James Alexander Sinclair, Angela Collins and most recently Arne Maynard.
