Sheltered woodland underplanted with naturalistic, flowing tapestry of foliage, shade-loving flowers, shrubs & ferns amongst large moss-covered boulders. Many Japanese maples, natural rocky stream and bridges. Meandering gravel paths & steps lend magic to ‘Dingley Dell’. Lawns, large rockery, & summerhouse with stunning views. Some steep steps."
