In front of the hall are borders with warm tones to reflect the welcome received by guests. Indeed the semi climbing roses that flank the entrance are David Austin’s ‘Warm welcome’.
All rose beds contain under planting such as primroses, white bells and scilla to give colour from February onwards.
Yew hedges have been planted around the car park to provide screening for the hall and out of the 60 car parking spaces, 40 have been left as grass to prevent habitat loss.
The woodland walk provides a sheltered and secluded area to explore and includes formal and informal planting, with yews shaped for structure, rhododendrons, laburnums and hornbeam and softer plants such as yellow welsh poppies, primrose, cowslips, forget me not and anemones under planted.
