We are OPEN

We are proud to display our brand new visitor interpretation signage scheme, which assists visitors’ experience of our estate, its history and people. For the first time in Hestercombe’s history, there is now a cohesive public information scheme for many of the areas within the estate. These include:

  • new banners on the pathways
  • a large map and new displays in the Visitor Reception
  • a timeline, and hanging interpretation panels in the Bat Barn
  • a completely refurbished Bat Room, with new visitor-controlled cameras and displays
  • new panels in the Octagon Summerhouse
  • thorough interpretation signage in the Watermill complex
  • panels in the Formal Gardens and House.

We are incredibly grateful for the funding received from
