We are currently working on new paths in The Grove to make your walks that little bit easier in future.
The paths will be firmer, but when the grass grows you will not be able to see the difference. For now though, we have to ‘keep off the grass’ while it grows.
The Grove is an informal garden in a woodland setting. It contains spring bulbs, a very large collection of rhododendrons, azaleas and a wide range of other flowering shrubs and exotic trees, including varieties of oak, birch, magnolia, prunus, sorbus, malus, kalmia and hydrangea. Particularly colourful in spring, The Grove provides a most attractive walk throughout the season and visitors frequently comment on its peacful atmosphere.
The Grove also showcases the hugely successful Sculpture Exhibition which continues to attract a wealth of talented artists who take inspiration for their work from this beautiful woodland garden.
