The Gardens

Set in an undulating landscape and surrounding two magnificent lakes, the 12 acre gardens contain many fine trees and shrubs including some rare specimens of
Rhododendrons,Magnolias,Camellias, and Azaleas, some of them brought back from China over 100 years ago.

The Walled Garden has recently been restored and is completely organic, growing fruit and vegetables for the house along with cutting flowers.

There are extensive old Foster& Pearson glasshouses where we are steadily building up a collection of exotics concentrating mainly on the temperate and tropical
Pteridophytes and Orchidaceae. The aim is to gather a Henbury collection of significant botanical importance. Highlights of the collection include the large group
of Pamianthe Peruviana, the wonderfully flamboyant Amarylid (sadly now extinct in the wild) and the rare Blechnum Palmiforme from Gough island
in the territory of Tristan da Cunha.

The ancient and historically important, listed peach cases contain Figs, Peaches, Apricots and Muscat grapes.
