The garden and its ornaments probably designed by Lord Kitchener in 1911.
The small loggia is in red brick with, on the south side, 3 round-headed stone
archvaye approached by 4 steps with stone Corinthian columns between and brick
pilasters on the outside. Stone cartouches brought from elsewhere in the spandrels.
Stone blocking course with vases at its angles. On both sides of the Loggia
a yew hedge with a brick wall behind it joins the building to small brick structures
flanked by pilasters and each containing a round-headed stone-edged niche containing
a statue (one apparently antique the other probably C19) with a broken pediment
over. The eastern focus of the garden is a stone wall fountain with a terracotta
balustrade above flanked by curved staircases, the staircases leading to a
terrace, the concealed structure behind being part of the service basement
built out from the main house. Imported ornaments in the garden include columns
of marble with swag ornament set in squares of yew hedge, a column to the centre
with a bronze statue of Pan by Brucciani and, at the eastern focus of the garden,
a large urn on a plinth with martial and musical carved trophies, the latter
2 ornaments probably being of the early C2O.
