Your school, college or learning group can enjoy year-round visits to Hestercombe with education membership.

From swathes of bluebells in spring, fragrant roses in summer, autumn’s red berries and snowdrops in winter, each season brings something different to see.

Use our beautiful Georgian Landscape Garden as a source of inspiration for creative writing or Rook Wood as a location for Forest School activities. Hestercombe’s diverse landscape can enhance learning across the whole curriculum.

Find out more about education membership (PDF), or email our Membership Coordinator for more information and joining details.
