NOTES: The house dates back to the 17th century but was extensively remodelled in the 18th and 19th centuries. But the house is famous for its gardens. First landscaped in the 1750s by the then owner Coplestone Warre Bampfylde, a landscape designer and amateur painter. Then in 1904, Lutyens with Jekyll responsible for the planting created one of his largest single garden designs, creating a series of paved terraces, raised walks and water features and a grand Orangery of 1906-1908. John Bampfylde married Margaret Harbin in 1718, died 1750.
