The Hestercombe Gardens Trust is an independent charitable trust. We rely on our dedicated team of volunteers and all proceeds from admissions, membership, retail and events to support the continued restoration, maintenance and development of the gardens.
Famous for our unique collection of gardens which span three centuries of garden history and design, our Formal Garden is hailed as one of the finest examples of the world-renowned partnership between garden designer Gertrude Jekyll and architect Sir Edwin Lutyens.
Hestercombe House and Gardens has undergone acclaimed restoration works and continues to develop and grow giving our visitors a stunning setting to explore, learn and relax.
