Details

Bask in the scents and colours of Calke's vibrant walled gardens. As well as being beautiful, this was a working garden, supplying fruit, vegetables and flowers to the house. Formerly the Physic Garden, the walled garden is now managed as a kitchen garden with sweet scents that pervade the air.
