farm has undergone a miraculous transformation over the last 30
years. 270-acres of featureless farmland have been carefully
returned to the sort of landscape which was traditional in North
About seven thousand trees have been planted with three new woods
and five spinneys, all the arable fields now have two or six metre
margins, five miles of hedge have been allowed to regenerate or have
been planted afresh. In addition we have extended the gardens and
planted a small orchard as well as a park around
the house of some fifty acres.
We are delighted that this transformation has succeeded in
restoring the landscape from what was little more than a prairie and
take great pleasure in welcoming visitors to enjoy and learn from
our gardens and walks.
