The gardens are truly the star at the property. They are the National Trust's warmest garden on mainland Britain and plants can be grown here that cannot be grown elsewhere in the Trust's properties. There are a mix of formal gardens and more informal areas ith some thing interesting to see at every turn and in every season.
There is also the added benefit of some stunning coastal views as well as views over the Salcombe estuary.
From the gardens it is also possible to go out onto the cliff path and enjoy more of the stunning coastal secenery.
