About Us

A tranquil wooded garden, surrounded by historic parkland, with a delightful walled garden at its heart.

Enjoy Charles Brocklehurst's informal garden as it comes alive in spring; snowdrops, narcissi and cyclamen lead the way, and are soon followed by the vibrant colour of rhododendrons, magnolias, and azaleas. The walled garden has been restored in line with Brocklehurst's vision, and now the white perennial borders sing out in summer. On warm days, enjoy a picnic in the shaded wooded garden. Autumn provides a great opportunity for invigorating walks around the garden.

Refreshments at weekends and Bank Holidays only (not National Trust). Small shop in car park and plants for sale. Information room with second hand books available for a small donation.

Contact us in advance to arrange group visits.

Assistance dogs only in the garden.

      Other than the rhododendron colours, this place is a run down dump. I am surprised that the NT still supports it. You can walk the one way trail in 30 minutes tops. Read full review

      Really enjoyed our visit to Hare Hill. Beautiful gardens in June. In particular loved the China Girl Cornus shrub which was spectacular during our visit. Nice quiet walk around gardens and ponds... Read full review

      Excellent staff and that's it! The gardens are overgrown with high weeds. The coffee machine and lady selling refreshments have all gone. I was told gardeners had been furloughed - gardeners... Read full review
