Gardening is the art that uses flowers and plants as paint, and the soil and sky as canvas.
This labyrinth of colour entices you to the cool lawns and borders that burst with colour from spring to autumn.
From the terrace, chill out with alfresco dining, an early evening cocktail or morning coffee and the papers.
Amongst the seven acres of stunning formal and woodland gardens are a heated outdoor swimming pool, tennis court, croquet lawn, a rediscovered rose garden and a Victorian Orangery. The 220 acre Langford Heathfield Nature Reserve is five minutes walk away
When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.
A garden is always a series of losses set against a few triumphs, like life itself.
