With over fifty acres of lakes, temples, cascades, woodland walks, formal terraces, vivid colours and views that take your breathe away it is no wonder that Hestercombe is visited by over 70,000 people a year for the gardens, food, events & art exhibitions.
Hestercombe is a unique combination of three period gardens - the landscape garden was created in the 1750s by soldier and artist, Coplestone Warre Bampfylde, renowned as having "the finest taste for laying out ground of any man in England". Bampfylde's vision was complemented with the addition of a Victorian terrace and shrubbery in the 1870s and followed by the creation of the beautiful Edwardian gardens designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens and Gertrude Jekyll between 1904 and 1908.
These world famous gardens, all once abandoned, have now been lovingly restored.
