Cardew Lodge Gardens

An outstanding feature of the property is the lovingly tended gardens which are well attended on the annual Open Weekend on the second weekend in July.

Views from the house look over a stonebuilt ha-ha and a hornbeam tree on the front lawn is said to date back to the 1600´s.

Adjoining Gardener´s Cottage is a separately Listed Grade II garden wall which is the back drop to a magnificent herbaceous border. Outside the wall are many fruit trees, some more unusual like the wine pear tree and beyond the orchard is a bog garden and wildlife pond with a revolving summerhouse situated on a grassy bank. Inside the wall is a water garden, flowerbeds and shrubberies and an indoor swimming pool which has recently been converted into a large fish pool with exotic plants and is used for BBQs and entertaining.
