To visit the Gardens, Gallery and House, you no longer need to pre-book a timed admission slot online (simply purchase gardens admission on arrival). Summer Late openings take place every Wednesday evening.
Hestercombe is a wonderful garden venue and regularly listed amongst the top 20 gardens in Britain. Many activities are offered in the garden, a good number of them are free with garden entry such as the butterfly walks and the charcoal burning days. Special emphasis is also given to children as it’s a great place for them to engage with nature and enjoy the great outdoors.
New for this year is the traditionally styled Hestercombe Summer Fete on June 1st and for all proud dog owners, a Family Dog Day on July 28th which promises to be a lot of fun for pets and owners alike. I attach our latest updated schedule of events from May until September. We have many lovely images so please get in touch if you would like any or indeed any further information about the gardens or any of the events. You are welcome yourself of course!
