Surrounded by 164 acres of breathtaking parkland, this mystical site has an intriguing history stretching back to medieval times. The gardens, laid out in the 17th century by Philip Packer, a friend of Sir Christopher Wren and the famous diarist and horticulturist John Evelyn, have been described as a most remarkable and a very special survival.
