The garden is beautifully situated down a long drive past a 6 acre lake. An attractive Derbyshire farmhouse with a fabulous view is in the centre of the garden which has been made from a field since 1980. The garden consists of a series of gardens separated by beech and yew hedges. The borders are mixed shrubs, roses and perennials. These have been collected over the years and many are very unusual. A scree garden is of particular interest with many rare alpines. A tapestry hedge is another feature consisting of yellow Privet, green and purple beech and purple berberis planted in blocks. The newest venture is a young arboretum planted with only rare trees and shrubs with an avenue of crataegus crus gallii the ‘Cockspur Thorn’.
