King John’s Nursery and Garden

About

This romantic 5-acre garden has many mature trees and rhododendrons surviving the 1980s' hurricane. There are water features and a stunning wild garden with gazebo and pond. Main borders include old roses and herbaceous plantings. The secret garden leads to the attractive garden house and to a medieval barn covered in roses and white solanum. Beyond the lily pond, visitors can walk in the parkland and enjoy the splendid views. The formal garden with fountain surrounds a fine historic Listed house.
