The six-acre woodland garden is centred on a small waterfall, an 250 foot lochan and lily pond. Since the 1960s there has been constant planting including major plantings in 1989 and the 90s. The storms of 2011/12 caused great damage to trees and bushes, but created space for additional azaleas, rhododendrons, camellias, hoheria, eucryphia and other flowering shrubs. There are over 100 species of rhododendron, as well as hybrids. Among the mature and young trees are cut leaf oak and alder, specimen conifers, redwoods, eucalyptus, acers and a wollemi pine, which was thought to be extinct until found in Australia in 1994.
