Head for the cool tranquility of the Koi Pool, surrounded by lush foliage and home to a both Koi Carp and Sturgeon.
The Koi Pool was created in the 1980’s with a statuesque backdrop of huge granite boulders now concealed by the foliage of Rubus tricolor (the thornless Chinese Bramble).
The crystal clear pool is home to around a dozen 10 -15 yr old Koi Carp. In perfect conditions, these highly coloured fish can grow up to a metre long. Their usual life span is 25 – 35 years.
They become very tame in the warm weather.
The Game Larder
The Game Larder, which sits nearby, is a grade II listed building. It was built in the mid-19th century and was recently renovated in 2017.
It was built as a cool place in which to store game during the maturation process.
