The garden layout of Belleville was inspired by the original garden concept, which was seen in photographs from the 19th century, and an orchard is integrated into the garden itself.
The entrance gates are a replica of the original 1860 cast iron gates and open onto a formal gravel drive around the rose garden leading to the front door.
There are many distinctive features in this garden including:
a 45 foot long covered walkway of Ornamental Grape (Vitus vinifera) which provides summer cool and autumn colour;
the quartz gravel walkway which ends in a sunken garden with seating and overhanging quince and other fruit trees;
a wisteria-covered ‘folly’ that provides sheltered seating; and
a pond in the kitchen garden with huge goldfish and waterlilies;
Throughout the garden there are many deciduous trees with autumn colour, including Malus trilobata. Gravel paths ramble throughout which also reveal hidden delights within the plantings and the layout.
