The walled garden was once a kitchen garden feeding the nearby Norton manor house of which only the undercroft and Victorian porch survive. Today the garden boasts a stunning array of flowering plants with something always in bloom from April to October. The traditional rose walk has been recreated from the decorative ‘tree of life’ gate to the pergola, the perfect place from which to admire the 2.5 acre gardens. The garden is also home to the national collection of tree quince, the preserves from which can be purchased from the cottage shop.
Look out for children’s trails, bug hotels and the tea rooms in the courtyard.
