Description and Information

The garden is a horticultural work of art formed through centuries of landscape design with influences of 'Capability' Brown and Humphry Repton. 4 lakes form the heart of the garden with paths through the glades and wooded areas surrounding them. Each owner has left their impression, which can still be seen today in the layout of the lakes, the construction of Pulham Falls, the planting of Palm Walk and the many different tree and shrub species from around the world. Our historic parkland forms a larger footprint for the Sheffield Park estate. Dating back several centuries, it has had many uses including a deer park, WWII camp, is now grazed with livestock and home to our natural woodland play trail in Ringwood Toll. The River Ouse runs across the bottom of the parkland. The original meanders are still visible across the meadow. Now transformed into a wildlife haven and is home to a diverse range of species including kingfishers, birds of prey, butterflies and dragonflies.
