Groome explains that "the gardens and plantations about Cherrytrees showed that the estate had fallen into the hands of a man of good taste and skill in ornamental landscape gardening". Certainly the fine Gothick building is of note. The 1st edition OS map shows a summer house to the NW of the walled garden, which is no longer there.
