An extensive garden with beautifully mature trees, shrubs and perennials which intertwine and overlap, bringing the purposely sectioned areas together in sync throughout the seasons. The two arches add height to the garden, draped with grape vines, wisteria, kiwi and clematis, hosting two herbaceous beds in shade and semi-shade with hydrangeas, rhododendrons, ferns and euphorbia, brings perfect marriage with the raised sunny bed of lavender, agapanthus, roses and rosemary, which is in close proximity. The tranquil white garden and wild life pond is an inviting place to sit and relax.

Towards the end of the garden a rare but intriguing Mediterranean bed is found, growing olive, fig, lemon and bean trees; this then naturally guides one's eyes into the tropical garden where bamboos, palms and cannas are wild, giving this area of the garden a life of its own.

Refreshments served from the pool house; relax by the pool in the tropical garden.
