These 10 acre gardens are divided into discrete areas each with it's own name and character. The arch in the hedge on the right leads into the White Garden and behind the camera is the Maple garden.

The flowers that you are likely to see will depend very much on the time of year that you visit.

This is part of the Old Garden. There are archways and paths seemingly everywhere. Luckily you are given a map when you arrive otherwise it would be very easy to end up going round in circles.

This is the Bathing Pool Garden although the National Trust ask you NOT to bath or paddle in it.

These gardens are very popular and although it wasn't crowded in May when we were there I imagine it could be at the height of the season.

This is part of the Upper Stream Garden. A little more 'wild' than some of the other parts and being on different levels it's rather fun following the wandering paths.
