The garden was laid out in 1780 in the landscape style, fashionable at the time. The original features of the garden remain unchanged, with sweeping lawns, large specimen trees, with a natural pond and burn which runs through the whole garden. The woodland is being restored and replanted with specimen rhododendrons and hydrangeas and woodland carpeters. A formal pleasure garden is being created in sympathetic style. Underwood House provides activity, training and employment for young people with neurological conditions. in 2019 a beautiful sensory area was created by partner schools working with young volunteers from the Prince's Trust.
