The grounds

The impressive tree-lined drive of Hornbeams under the Clock Tower is the first magnificent display of grandeur that greets guests arriving at Danesfield. 65 acres of woodland and formal gardens surround the house. An on-going project to restore and renovate the formal gardens began in 1989 and continues to this day. A variety of beautifully tendered and most unusual plantings now flourish and can be found surrounding the property. Many parts of the house's exterior is covered by a masterfully pruned Wisteria, flowering in a purple cascade during May and June. When walking on the terrace you will see exquisite towering Yew topiary and box hedging filled with varieties of English and French Lavender, of which there are five different varieties within the grounds. Central to this formality is a three tier fountain, a cherubim standing on an oyster shell tops the magnificent centre piece.
