The Gardens

One of the most outstanding features of Crimonmogate is the extensive and beautiful gardens in which it is situated. These extend the benefit of the house as an event venue by providing the perfect location for al fresco gatherings of any type, from drinks receptions and garden parties right through to concerts and weddings.

In the Spring the woods by the East Lawn are carpeted with snowdrops in their thousands. Then as the weather becomes warmer, these give place to daffodils, followed by a sea of bluebells and dense clouds of forget-me-nots. In the Summer, the copper beeches darken to provide a contrast with the evergreen of the giant and ancient Sitka spruce by the East Carriage Drive, and the leaf-green of the beeches around the house, many of which are almost 200 years old.

To the South of the main front of the house, there is a sundial dated 1780, bearing the Initials ‘PM’ for Patrick Milne, who commissioned the house. This interesting instrument bears noon marks for Bengal, Peking and Barbados, demonstrating the wide geographical spread of Milne's interests and the many sources of his wealth, which enabled him to commission one of the great stately homes of Europe.
