Annes Grove Gardens is laid out largely in the early 20th Century and Robinsonian style and it also incorporates elements of an earlier, 18th Century  ornamented glen  and landscape.

Many of the rare rhododendrons in the extensive woodland garden were introduced through subscription to the Kingdom Ward expeditions. On sheltered slopes overlooking the River Awbeg, magnolias, hoherias and eucryphias grow to unusual size.

Behind the 18th Century house secretive paths wind down past limestone cliffs and offer glimpses of the river, lily ponds and wild meadow below. Riverside walks are bordered by giant foliage plants and naturalised day lilies, astilbes and primulas.
