A mid-week garden opening for your enjoyment. Designed 200 years ago, this was one of Humphry Repton’s last commissions and brings together a multitude of landscaping elements for which Repton was renowned. Immediately around the house there are formal gardens running down to the River Tamar. There is a picturesque dell with little bridges crossing streams, huge Gunnera leaves and wonderful picnic spots. Beyond the formal gardens is the arboretum, which contains unusual trees from around the world, some of which are national champions.
