“The double herbaceous border flanked by clipped yew hedges retains much of the original perennial planting scheme, providing a wealth of seasonal colour,” a spokesperson for Longstowe Hall said. 

“There is also an abundance of wildlife in this tranquil environment throughout the mixture of habitats.”
