GARDENS AND GROUNDS
The many gardens at Careby Manor are sheltered with many mature shrubs and trees, including a magnificent 400 year old lime tree often surrounded by a carpet of pink and purple cyclamens.

Close to the house, hornbeam and purple beech hedges, as well as informal shrub and tree screens, have been developed to create walkways, a sunken garden, south facing formal terrace garden with pond and greener areas where planting is informal but structured.

An entrance next to the lime tree leads to a further walkway to ‘secret style gardens including a large lawned area within a walled garden bordered by shrubs and a beautiful cherry tree walk. From January to May the ground beneath the trees is carpeted with a succession of bulbs and flowers, including snowdrops, aconites, crocuses, narcissi, cowslips and others.

Beyond the formal garden boundaries there is an orchard of plums, apples, pears and cherries, a woodland area and land containing a large variety of trees and plants leading down to the West Glen River. Areas are separated in part by beautiful limestone and Victorian brick walls.

A timber stable block on a concrete hard standing provides three stables, fodder store and tack room.

A five acre fenced paddock with the added benefit of a spring water feeding trough can be easily accessed from the stables and is also bordered by the river.

The majority of this paddock is sheltered by a double belt of poplar trees. There are also two sheds near the stables and woodland area and there is a large hardstanding area near the double garage and greenhouse for additional parking, composting and/or storage.

There are numerous water taps located around the property including at the garage, by an area of vegetable beds and next to the driveway and house.
