Four distinct gardens extend over 50 acres, with over 4000 rare shrubs and trees.

Described as 'one of the finest collections of trees and shrubs in Britain', the gardens are sure to delight everyone.

The Kitchen Garden contains an avenue of ancient apple trees over a riot of bulbs in spring,with magnificent 120 foot double herbaceous borders, an old-fashioned rose garden as well as a traditional fruit and vegetable garden.

The Edwardian House is surrounded by many special plants, including magnolias, cherries and hydrangeas. The croquet lawn is enclosed by tall yew hedges containing vases of sweetly scented lilies in summer.

The Azalea Garden is dominated by a massive avenue of cedars, with spectacular azaleas shaded by many of the magnificent birches that form part of the National Collections held at Hergest Croft. The Maple Grove, started in 1985 contains many new plants introduced from China and elsewhere

Park Wood in a secluded valley hidden deep within an ancient oak wood, many giant rhododendrons and exotic trees, create a Himalayan scene that will surprise and amaze you.
