Gardens and Parkland

Outstanding gardens and parkland with lakeside and woodland walks, play area, coffee shop, picnics, wildlife, Highland cattle and Hebridean sheep.

The acres of beautiful parkland were first laid out in 1725 by the great Scottish architect William Adam.  The gardens, entered from an early 18th century courtyard, were designed by Reginald Blomfield in 1910. Italianate terraces and herbaceous borders were planned to complement the fine Georgian house with breathtaking views over the lawns and ornamental lake to the distant Cheviot Hills.

Within the grounds, the majestic Beeches, sturdy Oaks and sylvan Ash are a haven for wild birds and animals. Look out for red squirrels and roe deer or the flash of a kingfisher as you enjoy a peaceful stroll beside the Eden Water.

Garden Season Tickets available from Reception and The Coffee Shop.
