It is set in parkland with many fine, mature trees and surrounded by gorgeous gardens recently renovated by renowned landscape architect Tom Stuart-Smith.
In spring and summer the 1 ½ acre walled garden overflows with a rich variety of blooms, a huge tumbling wisteria, armies of 'true-blue' Lord Butler delphiniums, a mass of roses and much more. The woodland gardens are full of mystery with pathways that curl away into the distance and a beautiful Chinese bridge.
Former home of Rab and Mollie Butler of Saffron Walden and the famous 1920's explorer Augustine Courtauld.
