On a cold and wet winter's day, let us take you for a moment of peace, calm and reflection in The Ornamental Garden.

Take a step through the 16th Century Venetian Gates into a world of calm, colour and tranquility. Surround yourself with the sight and smell of over 16,000 plants and just take a moment....
Take a look around The Ornamental Garden
The fine wrought-iron sixteenth-century gates were bought by the fourth Duke in Italy during the 1850's and restored by local Northumbrian specialists in 2000.
Malus "Red Sentinel" (crab apple)
The central spaces are enclosed by espaliered Malus "Red Sentinel" (crab apple), while the low-growing Malus "Evereste" forms clipped hedges as a backdrop to the triangular borders. This was the first tree to be introduced here in the north border as part of the new design.
