The Orangery, built to overwinter citrus fruits, is simply furnished with pots and containers and provides cool felief on hot summer days. The oranges are moved outside once fear of frost is past. The exterior walls are festooned with yellow Bankstian rose and buff ‘Gloire de Dijon’, passion flowers and tubular flowered eccremocarpus. The sandstone frontispiece and rusticated arch were moved here from the main entrance to the castle at the begining of the twentieth century.*
