A romantic house with a park. The park was designed by Lancelot Brown(c1775) in the Serpentine Style but has developed into a major twentieth century woodland garden and arboretum, planted in the Gardenesque Style. It has a collection of exotic trees and shrubs, established by the Third Earl of Sheffield, from 1876-1909, and by Arthur Soames, who owned the estate from 1910-53. The Earl created the balustraded bridge (1882), the cascade and the Middle Lake. He also started the arboretum. Soames was responsible for most of the shrub planting. He loved rhodendrons
