Wallington is a fine 17th century house surrounded by eighteenth century gardens and parkland. There is a gravel terrace in front of the house, looking over a lawn and pond. It was made in the 1730s and Dorothy Stroud remarks that Lancelot Brown, who was a child at nearby Kirkhale, 'had been familiar since childhood with the estate'. Later, in 1765, Brown advised on the east garden at Wallington, including the China Pond. Wallington garden has a Victorian Peach House, an Edwardian conservatory and extensive herbaceous planting. There are walks through a variety of lawns, shrubberies, lakes and woodland, enlivened with buildings, sculpture, water features and a wildlife hide.
