Hinton Admiral

Magnificent 20 acre garden within a much larger estate, now being restored and developed. Mature plantings of deciduous azaleas and rhododendrons amidst a sea of bluebells. Wandering paths lead through rockeries and beside ponds, and a stream with many cascades. Orchids appear in the large lawns. The two walled gardens are devoted to herbs and wild flowers, and a very large greenhouse.

The terrace and rock garden were designed by Harold Peto.

Sunday 21 May (1 - 4.30pm). Admission £6.00, children free.

This garden also makes a donation to Julia's House Childrens Hospice.
