Listed by English Heritage, the formal gardens - which are open to the public Wednesday to Sunday between 11am and 4pm - are set in 13 acres of level parkland with 45 species of trees, a pinetum, a walled vegetable garden, a parterre, two croquet lawns and one of the largest icehouses in the country. In September 2015 a Sculpture Park was opened in the grounds with additional installations introduced regularly.
Of more recent architectural interest is the sympathetically designed 155 sq m built-in-photo-voltaic roof - on what used to be the old green house - which generates electricity for use within the home.
A new orangery has also been built as an amenity centre, which - together with the converted loose boxes - is well suited for hobbies, craftwork, workshops, art and craft displays, presentations, fund raising events and the general hosting of formal and informal functions.
In August 2017 'Stable Arts' opened in the Victorian stables, offering arts and crafts workshops and courses co-ordinated by Mary Kembery. Visit www.stablearts.co.uk for more details.
In the past the grounds have been well utilised for croquet and boules tournaments, art-garden displays, fetes, charitable fund raising events, musical concerts, the erection of stalls and marquees for individual events and outside plays.
Whilst the grounds and facilities are well used by the residents of Nynehead Court and Mews, their use by outside agencies brings added interest to the residents of the Court and Mews.
Regular garden tours are also conducted by prior appointment with the Head Gardener.
