The site also features 25 acres of award-winning Gardens, full of rare and beautiful plants. Newby's magnificent double herbaceous borders form the main axis; off this central walk are formal compartmented gardens such as Sylvia's Garden, a species Rose Garden, Water Garden and even a Tropical Garden - truly "A Garden for All Seasons".
