In recent years the Garden has been transformed to create areas of relative privacy.
Here, on a warm day, guests can sit undisturbed with the scent of flowers and the busy drone of the bumblebee and feel totally at peace.
The garden also contributes towards the provision of the house, with a small kitchen garden, where vegetables and fresh herbs are grown organically throughout the summer.
The gardener keeps the use of chemicals to an absolute minimum using only organic fertilizers. Kitchen and garden waste is composted and put back into the soil. This way we can maintain a natural balance and encourage beneficial wildlife into the garden.
Guests may also wish to wander down to the river or through the Cathedral and Millennium Parks.
