The Woodland Garden

The Estate is delighted that Charles Chesshire, emminent garden designer, has joined the Forestry team and our new gardener Paul Forster, to start an ambitious two year programme restoring and re-shaping our extensive Woodland Garden.


Created in 1958, and flourishing ever since, it has, over the last few years, along with the ongoing threat of Phytophthora Ramorum disease and the unwelcome invasion of wild boar, become rather overgrown and overcrowded with too many mature plants.

We hope that this initiative will allow our best plants to flourish anew, creating fresh views and avenues, to surprise regular visitors and first timers alike.
