Fodor's Review

Half a mile north of town, this delightful garden is a rare survivor from the exuberant rococo period of English garden design (1720–60). After 50 years in its original form, the 6-acre garden became overgrown. After the rediscovery of a 1748 painting of the garden by Thomas Robins, the garden was restored beginning in 1984. Now you can view the original structures—such as the pretty Gothic Eagle House and curved Exedra—take in the asymmetrical vistas, and try the

modern maze, which, unusually, has three goals you can discover. It's also famous for its snowdrops which bloom in January and February. There's a restaurant and a shop as well.
