One of the oldest surviving garden plans in the UK, spiral mounts, moats, terraces, water gardens and orchards all survive as they were 400 years ago, though the Elizabethan house is just a roofless shell of what it should have been, building having been abandoned when the man building it died at the beginning of the 17th Century. Set in open countryside, at the time of its construction it was on the same block as the owners main house and this smaller satellite was something of a granny flat equivalent.
