Further details:The 60+ acres of Hodnet Hall Gardens are amongst the finest in the country. There has been a park and gardens at Hodnet for many hundreds of years, and their design and size has followed on from the three different sites of the houses in which the Heber-Percy family and their ancestors have lived. Magnificent forest trees, ornamental shrubs and flowers have been planted to give interest and colour from early Spring to late Autumn. Woodland walks alongside a daisy chain of pools and lakes, home to abundant wildlife. 17th century Tearooms open 12 noon to 5pm. We welcome disabled visitors, for whom large parts of the gardens are accessible especially if accompanied.
