Walking through the grounds to the walled garden we pass the ruins of a chapel
There’s something very peaceful and tranquil about a walled garden, especially when there’s no-one else in sight, with the water features, the geometrical beds and the quiet places to sit and contemplate.
Leading off the walled garden is a wilder bog garden, dominated by huge Gunnera plants, sometimes called Dinosaur food. They do look quite prehistoric and can grow to around 9 feet tall with an even larger spread.
The thatched hut gives an elevated view.
