Tall, coped, squared and tooled pink sandstone rubble walls (heavily-pointed in part) to NW, NE and SW; low, coped rubble wall to SE; ashlar quoins and long and short surrounds to openings; red brick inner lining to NW. Depressed-arched entrance centred in NW wall with 2-leaf, decorative wrought-iron gate. Round-arched entrances to NE and SW with decorative wrought-iron gates. Lean-to, red brick potting shed range adjoining outer elevation NW wall; remains of lean-to greenhouses adjoining inner elevation, flanking central entrance.

Separate brick-built gatepiers to SE with 2-leaf, decorative wrought-iron gate.

Set to the SW of Hutton Castle but now in separate ownership (1999). A relatively late but large, well-detailed walled garden - the decorative iron gates and red brick inner lining being particularly good. Heavily overgrown, little can be seen of the original formal layout. Ruinous remains of separate greenhouses to N.
