It has a diverse history dating back to the 12th century: being founded in December 1170 by William de Tracey, who was one of the four knights who assassinated Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury.
Tracey Gardens are the most complete Lucombe and Pince planned gardens still in existence; however, through years of neglect, they have become very overgrown. This designed parkland is currently undergoing restoration to re-establish its original beauty. Tracey spans 25 acres of woodland garden, with exotic specimen trees .There are many Victorian features, such as the unusual sunken garden, Victorian bathing pools, a yew circle, walled garden and giant rhododendrons.
