Conservatory & Peacock Garden
This part of the garden was designed by the Victorian landscape gardener Robert Marnock and consists of a number of topiary peacocks, manicured hedges and beautiful pond and fountain.
Overlooking their garden home is the conservatory which was built in 1786 by local man, William Eborall. It was originally built to house the Warwick Vase, a magnificent piece of ancient Roman pottery excavated near Tivoli in 1771, which are now on display at the Burrell Collection in Glasgow. However, a full-size replica can still be found in the conservatory.
Indulge yourself in an afternoon tea from the Conservatory Tea House and enjoy the stunning surroundings of the formal Peacock Garden. Complete with topiary, flourishing florals and a grand fountain, it’s the perfect backdrop to an hour or two of luxury. With three tiers of classic afternoon tea delicacies available, complete with stunning, intricate sapphire T2 tea ware, it makes for a sumptuous afternoon. Choose from 10 different blends of T2 loose tea, or why not upgrade and include a glass of prosecco to make it extra special?
You can also purchase your T2 tea ware after you have finished with your afternoon tea as a memento for your luxurious afternoon.
