ABOUT THE GARDENS
The 4 acres of mature gardens which surround Part-Y-Seal make for an interesting walk. Start by leisurely crossing the terrace and lawns the front of the house and take in the far-reaching and timeless views. From here, you can explore the sheltered and sunny walled-garden with its perennial borders and lavender-edged paths full of the scents and ever-changing colours of summer.
Pass through the old green doorway and discover our kitchen garden and greenhouses. During the summer months this garden comes alive, bursting with our naturally grown fruit and vegetables of every description from chillies to grapes. If it can be grown, we try growing it here! See and hear our rescue chickens happily scratching away in their run, earning their keep by providing us with free range eggs and compost for our gardens.
We also have our own beehives, from which our bees pollinate our plants and provide us with tasty honey. Adjacent to the house, a short stroll through shady woodland opens out into a tranquil and soothing pond area. The Coach House Garden, managed by Henry Hartmann, is full of mature and colourful shrubs and flowers. This garden has a different yet complimentary feel to Part-y-seal garden. In the autumn, not only our gardens but also the surrounding countryside are filled with beautiful autumn colours.
