The Gardens

The stunning gardens, outdoor pool & ballroom are all designed by Clough Williams- Ellis, (of Portmeirion fame). The formal terrace with symmetrical Portuguese Laurels and a bronze violinist is the ideal spot for a drinks reception, offering delightful views over the ha-ha to a series of lakes and rolling countryside beyond; head down the stone steps from the house, past the colourful flower-filled borders and the topiary, to the croquet lawn, which can take a marquee for up to 250 guests with an Italianate water feature and canal; then to the Ballroom and its walled garden, providing a more intimate and sheltered entertaining space, perfect for a stretch tent or an Indian styled pavilion for a covered dining or chill-out space to use in conjunction with the Ballroom. Finally, the pretty walled swimming pool area with lavender, honey-suckle, roses and peonies is relaxed and welcoming for a summer picnic spot and swim. These different perspectives all make for that perfect summer party, bespoke to your event.

There is also a hard tennis court for guests use.
