 It is a garden with a special and distinctive sense of place watched over by busts of gods and emperors. The garden was first made here in the 1740s and now sympathetically combines original features, neoclassical style and contemporary design. A grand water staircase and Italianate fountain provides a focal point. An alley of apple trees divides its elaborate potager with its whimsical fruit cages from its signature perennial borders exuberantly planted in subtle hues of mauve, plum and blue. The Lakefield, carpeted with daffodils in the spring is home to an eclectic collection of garden follies
