Cradled in a hidden lakeside dell it plays generous host to a wealth of wildlife native to the area. Nurtured by the unique surroundings, the gardens blend with nature to produce an ever-changing interest through the seasons. From the beautiful established borders of azaleas set ablaze with colour in late spring, to a vast array of autumn tints enhanced by the everchanging foliage of the many species of trees and shrubs found within. From undulating carpets of velvet green moss through fern glades and stream paths, to cascading waterfalls and emerald lawns this is truly a garden for all seasons, to be enjoyed by all lovers of nature and flora alike.
