Meander through the fifteen acres of Annandale's historic gardens around the homestead and discover an array of fascinating botanical features – the lush atmosphere of the restored Victorian fernery, the dappled shade of the long walk beside the bay, the structural simplicity of the parterre and the exuberance of the kitchen garden.

We have lovingly restored our historic garden with its box hedging, sweeping lawns, dry stone walls and English trees underplanted with daffodils. We have also resurrected the heritage orchard, simultaneously extending native and exotic plantings and developing new areas of interest. We invite you to share in the graceful beauty and tranquility of this special garden and we would be happy to arrange a tour of these heritage gardens.

Kitchen Garden

Our kitchen garden is available to provide the freshest ingredients for your experience. You won’t find any Keep Out signs here… you are welcome to roam and explore at will: cut a few flowers from the borders and some salad leaves from the kitchen garden, grab some lemons for your crepes from one of our trees. It’s all yours and yours alone.
