A flower garden, made in a walled vegetable garden dating from 1650. Acorn Bank has an orchard and 'the largest collection of culinary and medicinal herbs in any National Trust garden'. Dorothy Una Ratcliffe re-worked the garden in the 1930s and ’40s, shifting the emphasis to fruit and flowers, adding new ornaments and statues to create an Arts and Crafts style garden. It has a wildflower meadow and a bird reserve.
The garden is best known for the walled herb garden , which contains more than 250 varieties of medicinal and culinary herbs.
