Our grounds and gardens are expertly managed to maintain their diversity of flora and fauna. Expect an explosion of colour and fresh scents in spring and summer as the wild flowers burst into life. The flurry of autumnal gold and orange colours creates a magical setting, not to mention a photographer’s dream.
The grounds are home to a selection of beautiful ancient oak trees and yews. Around 1875 when the house was rebuilt the gardens and surrounding parklands (the ‘policies’) received a planting of new specimen trees including three types of large cedars and rhododendrons.
There are 31 magnificent Wellingtonias (or Californian redwoods) that line the drive, and many other conifers and hardwoods can be seen. The much-adorned native Red Squirrels reside at Errol Park. We’re particularly proud of our conservation project to protect them as their species has seen a drastic decline in recent years.
