Records show that the Carlyon Family have been ardent horticulturists since the early 17th Century. The latest additions to this legacy have been the camellia breeding programme by Miss G Carlyon and much clearing and planting by Tom Hudson.

Plants of note

The feeling when walking especially in the woodland is of the extent of the botanical diversity. Many plants are of known source origin, and grouped geographically to form a living Green Gene Bank. Many trees have reached exceptional size with at least two dozen being the largest of their type in the UK including the tallest Gingko, among many conifers and oaks especially.
