Before they closed in 2010, the gardens attracted around 50,000 visitors a year.

Now the country estate has been put on the market by the commercial property advertising company GVA acting on behalf of receivers.

The gardens include seven lakes, renowned ornamental rock gardens, parkland and woodland - along with collections of wallaby, deer and carp.

GVA say that ‘offers are invited’ but have not put a price on the property.
