Hestercombe Gardens


Discover 300 years of garden design in one inspiring estate.  Wander along the lakeside paths of the Georgian Landscape Garden, admire the views from the Victorian Terrace and see the stunning Edwardian Formal Garden, one of the finest examples of Gertrude Jekyll and Edwin Lutyens’ famous partnership.
Head to the house to find Hestercombe Gallery and be intrigued and inspired by changing exhibitions of contemporary art throughout the year.
The Stables Café serves delicious home-cooked lunches and is famous for its Sunday roasts.  It’s also the perfect stop-off for a cup of tea and slice of cake.  Or, if you’re looking for something special, visit the elegant Column Room Restaurant in Hestercombe House where you can enjoy waiter service and a delicious three course lunch or afternoon tea with a view!
The Gardens Shop & Plant Centre offers gardening essentials, gifts and blooms. The Second-hand Book Shop in Hestercombe House is a book lover’s paradise.
