The garden of sculptor Deborah and her musician husband, Andrew van der Beek.

When not creating bronze sculptures, some of them lifesize, Deborah is tirelessly crafting a beautiful garden. Huge Yew hedges criss-cross the garden and a labyrinth of hidden passages lead you through the garden. The centre piece is a castellated circular structure, with windows and a circular wooden platform some 10 feet above the garden. Other interesting structures include a 15 foot tall Hornbeam witches hat, a Box topiary crown some 10 feet tall and a 20 foot Amazonian woman. The house has been the set of various BBC period dramas and was even featured in one of the Harry Potter movies.
