Grounds and garden

Lawn House is over 350 years old. The Howard family moved to the Lawns in the winter of 1986. Since then it has become Elizabeth and Ralph’s focus, developing the extensive gardens and establishing Guinea wood. The Gardens were sparse, in serious need of loving care. So began the long and pleasurable journey to improve on what was there and establish a diverse flora and flora. We are passionate about wildlife and habitat so this became the backbone of a lot of what was put in, so ensuring a wide verity of insects, birds and other creatures like hedgehogs were able establish and thrive.
