The gardens comprise sloping lawns and wonderful borders which have been planted with tulips, snowdrops, bluebells, daffodils, hyacinths and hydrangeas; to the north is a copse of scotch pine which separates the garden from the paddock.
Ivy Rock is situated on the borders of Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire near the village of Tidenham which lies between the Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley. The village of Tutshill has everyday amenities while Chepstow has more extensive shopping. Road and rail communications are also good.
