The Orchard

Crossing over the garden moat we come to the Wild Flower Garden and Orchard, where you will also find the tennis court, which has been designed to be as unobtrusive as possible, with fishing net in place of normal chain link fencing. Here wildflowers abound with primroses, cowslips, ox-eye daisies, with pyramidal and marsh orchids blooming later in the year. Cut paths make a walkway through the long grass. After the formality of the previous gardens it is refreshing to find an area of natural wildness on the edge of our Tudor deer park.
