A garden of tremendous richness remade in the 1920s. Colour-tapestry beds below the house give way to groves of woodland planting under eucalyptus and birch; mysterious statues populate the garden like a children’s story; the great lake with its superbly-planted margin leads to the memorably romantic burial ground looking out over the mysterious beauty of Strangford Lough.
