To the East side of the house is the Millennium Garden designed by Xa Tollemache a Chelsea Gold Medallist. The large herbaceous borders are edged with box and lavender and an illuminated "topiary" water sculpture was designed and built by Giles Rayner in 2002. From there the path takes you to the formal terraced lawns in front of the house. The eye is then drawn across a small country road by a tree-lined avenue towards the Triumphal Arch built as an eye-catcher and our newly restored temple the Holwell Temple.
