About Us

A hidden gem, set amid rolling parkland, Hare Hill is a small but perfectly formed wooded and walled garden. Especially spectacular in early summer the garden is a riot of colour with its displays of azaleas, rhododendron and hosta. Picnic by the lake and take a lovely walk around the surrounding parkland or venture further to nearby Alderley Edge.

Every weekend until October a pop-up cafe opens in the garden, offering freshly ground coffee, speciality tea, locally produced, homemade cake and Snugbury’s ice cream.

National Trust property.

Parking charges are refunded on admission. Groups admitted by prior written appointment only.

Garden Open 18th March - 28th October

      We visited for a nice peaceful afternoon. The gardens are very poorly signed from close by, certainly not to the normal National Trust standards. As National Trust members we got free entry. Hare... Read full review
