The Formal Garden

The Formal Garden was conceived by Bernard Saunders and Mary Spiller in 1986 as a counterpart to the house whose history goes back more than 500 years. The central feature derives from Tudor knot garden designs consisting of a knot of traditional box and a garden containing herbs for medicinal and culinary use, as well as for strewing. This is our ‘Silent Space‘.
