Probably late C16 or early C17 in origin and contemporary with Boverton House (qv). The enclosure walls have been repaired since but otherwise appear unaltered. Built presumably as a sheltered vegetable or fruit garden, but it seems to have been unused for many years. An unusual and attractive feature of uncertain purpose, especially as it has only one narrow entrance.
Wedge shaped garden enclosed by high walls of limestone rubble with a dressed coping along the roadside. Chamfered stone doorway with pointed head, Glamorganshire stops and a wooden boarded door set in narrow and slightly projecting south wall. Stone rubble walls incorporating a stone band which rises towards the top of the walls near the north-east end of the garden. The walls are about 2m in height, but much lower on the road side where the outside ground has risen considerably.
Included as an unusual and historic walled garden which has group value with the adjacent Boverton House.
