Highfield House – Main garden created 30 years ago in former walled kitchen garden of Chedington Court. Also woodland area leading to orchard with shepherds hut overlooking pond.
Chedington Court – Stunningly beautiful gardens and grounds. Spring fed ornamental lake with fountain. On the southern side of the house is a series of attractive stone terraces surrounded by smart stone ballustrading and a pair of mirrored stairs lead from here to the croquet lawn which is surrounded by beautiful herbaceous borders. Paths lead to a succession of ponds which form an attractive water garden. Beyond this is a rockery garden
passing under a series of wooden bridges to some lower ponds. Further to the south is an enclosed kitchen garden area with greenhouses and fruit cages. The rolling lawns drop down to the west of the house to a glasshouse and nursery beds.
Stoneleigh – A low maintenance front garden, with an English Rose Courtyard.
