  • This is a most interesting garden, a survivor from a short but evolutionary time in gardening history. More often associated with the arts and architecture than with gardens, the Rococo style is associated with the French words rocaille meaning rock-work and coquille, a shell. The garden layout combines the formality of long vistas and geometric patterns with informal winding paths, off-centred design and a number of building styles. The 6 acre garden has been under restoration since 1984 with guidance from archaelogical excavations and a remarkable painting of 1748 by Thomas Robins. The restored garden is now beginning to mature and one can see unusual features as the designer intended, as one strolls around the serpentine garden paths. Fascinating garden features include The Melon Ground, The Doric Seat, The Plunge Pool, The Exedra, The Red House, The Geometric Kitchen Garden, The Gothic Alcove, The Pigeon House, The Eagle House, The Bowling Green and The Fish Pond. This place is of great significance in the evolution of garden design.
