Manderston Garden

An early twentieth century house with terraced garden and a transition to a lake and a woodland garden which was planted in the 1950s. The Manderston garden design inspiration was drawn from Robert Adam. The walled garden is vigorously planted.  John Kinross (1855–1931) remodelled the house and designed the garden terraces. When asked about the budget he was told 'it simply doesn't matter'. The owner, Sir James Miller (1863-1906) was heir to the Huntley and Palmer biscuit fortune and, having married Lord Curzon's daughter, aspired to the grandeur of Kedleston Hall.
