The Gardens

On the front lawn of the house lies the cricket ground, which is reputed to be the oldest continuously played on private cricket ground in England. To the North and West of the house lie the attractive gardens with magnificent yew hedges, lawns and flower beds. A principle feature of the gardens is the seventeenth century dovecote.
