One of the pleasant features about the gardens is that they lie all around the house. Make a curcuit of the gardens and you have made a cicuit of the house exterior. Each has good views of the other.
Apart from a couple of mixed orchards and a scattering of trees there were no gardens here when the current owners father parents arrived on the scene in 1910. Of the trees a few survive: three pears, including a Williams, still cropping well; the bay laurel near to the front path; a black fig, planted in Northiam and a yew tree, which has been cut back and retained as a topiary specimen.
