The house stands in four acres of parkland, which falls into four distinct parts:
The walled garden is a wonderful sun-trap and so lends itself to more exotic plants. Bamboo and Japanese shrubs being at home in this part of the garden. The centenarian Apple tree has an abundant harvest each year, and you can pick your own apples. It faces the formal East facade of Hedgefield House.
A dene runs through the grounds and is heavily wooded and left to nature. This is a quiet sanctuary for three deer, pheasants, rabbits, badgers, hedgehogs, foxes, frogs and English bluebells and wild garlic.
The stream winds its way to the Tyne, approximately half a mile away.
The small traditional English pond is fed by a natural spring and has an outlet into the dene and eventually into the Tyne. The pond is home to many English pond plants and several varieties of lilies. Frogs and dragonflies inhabit the pond. The formal lily pond is a lovely place to relax under the weeping ash. Frogs, newts and dragonflies and koi make the pond their home.
This is a traditional English garden with stunning borders, changing throughout the seasons. This part of the grounds provides a vivid splash of colour and the lawns and Weeping Ash are a place for quiet contemplation.
