Cross the stone bridge with its mock Greek ruin and marbled statuary, illuminating the left-hand side of the pool.

Stroll through the gardens, runway lights guiding you along the stone path after dark, and enjoy a moment of calm in the summerhouse, designed to be an exact replica of the bandstand at Belper.
