The eighteenth century West Green House is a National Trust property. This grotto dates from the late 1970's and was constructed for Lord McAlpine. The architect was Quinlan Terry and the garden design included a nymphaeum fountain.



Should the grounds be closed, the grotto can be seen from the public footpath that runs down the side of the 10 acre gardens. Inside the grotto there is a water fountain. A short distance away the grotto is guarded by a stone gentleman leaning on an obelisk.

The National Trust run the garden open days.
