Now, visitors can soak up the glorious colour surrounding the Grade II*-listed home with a special tour and afternoon tea event with head gardener Glyn Sherratt.
Taking place on Wednesday, October 16, it will see those taking part enjoy a fascinating, fact-packed guided walk around the award-winning gardens from 2pm.
Afterwards, the tour will retreat to the Ilex Brasserie for a tasty, home-produced afternoon tea.
Glyn, who trained at the renowned Kew Gardens in London, said: “The gardens are always changing so there’s something new to see throughout the year.
“The light is very different in the autumn. Seeing the hall bathed in golden sunshine is a very special sight.
People often think of spring or summer as the perfect months to visit a garden,” he added.
“But autumn, when the leaves begin to show a pallette of yellows, oranges and reds, really is a time to be savoured.”
Tickets for the autumn tour cost £25 per person. Places are limited, so must be booked in advance by calling 015395 58328.
