We are CLOSED

10:00am - 3:30pm | Cost: £13.75

Visit the gardens on Tuesday 1st March and Tuesday 7th June 2022 to help support the National Garden Scheme. A proportion of all admissions from visits to Hestercombe will be donated to the NGS as they in turn provide funding to a number of extremely important charities.

About the NGS

The National Garden Scheme gives visitors unique access to over 3,600 exceptional private gardens in England and Wales, and raises impressive amounts of money for nursing and health charities through admissions, teas and cake. Thanks to the generosity of garden owners, volunteers and visitors, they have donated over £60 million to nursing and health charities and made an annual donation of £2.88 million in 2020. Their core beneficiaries include Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie, Hospice UK and The Queen’s Nursing Institute.

The National Garden Scheme doesn’t just open beautiful gardens for charity – they are passionate about the physical and mental health benefits of gardens too. They also support charities doing amazing work in gardens and health and grant bursaries to help community gardening projects.
