This 8 acre site was established by Francis Moss, one of the first nurserymen in the district, and was last opened to the public in the 1870s. A gravel pathway leads into the original garden and specimen period trees have been placed in original positions recreating the 19th Century gardenesque-style as Moss had arranged.

The garden surrounds a splendidly crafted contemporary home on a 10 acre block and has evolved reflecting the earthy qualities of the architecture. Some thousand trees have been planted and bespoke garden hardware adorns the various functional spaces within this budding landscape. Look around, breathe in the exhilarating country air and imagine the scene in another 150 years.

The original vicarage in the village is a sublime trinity of charming heritage home, colourful cottage garden and creative arts. The garden largely embodies a traditional and classical aesthetic with historic plants and trees preserved, the crowning glory being 160 year old oaks, and with new garden layouts and plants being introduced that are stylistically appropriate and historically sympathetic.
