Sadly the present tenants, both artists who have successfully run the sculpture gardens since 2013, are opening for the last time on September 25, so there are 8 more days left to visit. It's open 11am-6pm, Wednesday-Sunday. It's well worth a visit.
I was really lucky last Thursday, the weather, as you can see from the photos was spectacularly bright and sunny. The first thing you see when you walk round the back of the house, along the east terrace, is the spectacular view to the river
The summerhouse makes a lovely focal point whether seen from the side
The summerhouse makes a perfect setting for another sculpture in Portland stone, this time by Nicola Axe
