hodnet hall - image via Plant Hunter Fairs ©Of all our wonderful venues Hodnet Hall Gardens have been the most popular destination for group trips and is the ideal day out with something for everyone. We have nurseries coming along from as far afield as Cornwall, Scotland and Lincolnshire to make this a very special day out for all garden lovers.   There are 63 acres of gardens criss-crossed by good paths with grand vistas, intimate, secluded areas, a walled kitchen garden, magnificent lakes; the glorious setting is almost beyond description!

There have been gardens at Hodnet since the 11th century when the Heber-Percy family constructed their first house in the parkland. Their serious development began in 1921 by the late Brigadier Heber-Percy and today, is renowned as amongst the finest in the country. Forest trees provide a wonderful backdrop for formal gardens planted to give delight during every season, woodland walks amongst flowering shrubs and a daisy chain of ornamental pools.

Hodnet have recently been awarded National Collection Status for Cercidiphyllum (burnt sugar trees). Visitors can explore the gardens, meet top nurserymen and women and enjoy light refreshments in the picturesque restaurant. What more could you want on an early summer's day?   Entry to the garden and fair is at the very special price of just £3.50 for adults and free for children aged 16 and under. (Normal entry is £6.50 for adults and £3.00 for children)
