About the reserve

This reserve contains an old walled garden with meadow, woodland and ponds. It is a good reserve for birds such as nuthatch, goldcrests and warblers. There are also some unusual naturalised garden species.  

What's it like to visit?

Inside the garden’s ivy-clothed walls, efforts have been made to re-establish the original fruit orchard where michaelmas daisy and rosebay willowherb provide a colourful display. Spring blossoms attract many bees, hoverflies and butterflies to this quintessential English orchard.  

Outside the imposing walls, mature oak, elm and yew provide open woodland, attracting buzzards, sparrowhawks and jays. A wildflower meadow has been re-established with delightful flowers, including cuckooflower, common knapweed and St John’s-wort.
