A late 18th century park landscape around Hoveton House, diverting several roads to accommodate it. Humphry Repton was involved to some extent in its design. The park was extended to the south in the 19th century and underwent minor alterations in the 20th century. However, the park gardens are in their original position. The remains of a woodland garden can still be seen on The Mount, and there is overgrown woodland to the west.
