This area was created from an old pony paddock between 2017 and 2019 in order to link the major parts of the gardens better together. It centres on a new spine running from the Walled Garden south through the Yew Terrace and then down to the Woodland Garden. The focal point is a large stone water fountain situated on top of a grassed mound. Four formal grass paths radiate from the fountain, directing you to other parts of the garden. The layout of the paths is based on the goosefoot pattern, a baroque style of garden design. The fountain has been positioned to line up with the formal vista on the western side of the Walled Garden, the south side of the house and rose parterre, the stone obelisk in the Woodland Garden and the Orchard. A set of stone steps lead you south down the garden from the fountain through a stoned pillared gateway into the Woodland Garden.
A number of interesting trees have been planted throughout the garden such as monkey puzzle (Araucana araucaria), Eucryphia lucida ‘Pink Cloud’ and various different oaks.
A winter garden style planting makes up the top part of the garden. The brightly coloured winter stems of Cornus alba Baton Rouge and Cornus sanguinea ‘Magic Flame’ underplanted with dwarf conifers and Calluna and Erica type heathers provide a tapestry of colour through the winter.
At the lower end of the garden a wildflower meadow provides a more naturalistic feel. Snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis), winter aconites (Eranthis hyemalis) and daffodils provide colour during winter and spring. This is followed by wildflowers including cornflower (Centaurea cyanus), ox-eye daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare) and common red poppy (Papaver rhoeas) during the summer.
