The immaculately kept gardens (25 acres in all) are part woodland and part formal garden. These are complimented by the 200-acre 'natural' parkland, which is the result of late 18th century planting by Lord George Cavendish. Over generations the family have continued to develop the gardens and they are constantly evolving as new plantings are made or new ideas are born and Lord and Lady Cavendish continue to make changes and additions to these gardens.
