Hergest Croft Gardens

A garden for all seasons

Hergest Croft Gardens lies in the heart of the Welsh Marches with stunning views towards the Black Mountains. From spring bulbs to autumn colour this is a garden for all seasons.

An old-fashioned Kitchen Garden with a Rose Garden and stunning herbaceous borders; Spring Borders with carpets of bulbs; and unusual vegetables; the Azalea Garden with spectacular colour in the spring: and Park Wood, with 30 foot high rhododendrons are all fantastic areas to explore. The perfect place to relax, wander and explore.

Refreshments are provided by Maples Tearooms who specialise in local homemade food and wonderful daily specials. You can visit the tearoom, plant sales and gift shop at any time without paying to visit the gardens.

Sit on the Terrace and take in the view. If the weather is unsuitable there is lovely indoor seating within Hergest Croft. For bookings or enquiries please ring Mel on 07970 595420.

The Plant Sales area contain many rare and unusual specimens from perennials, shrubs and trees. A wide range of gifts are available to purchase with many local artists’ work available.

The gardens are partially accessible but due to the nature of the grounds some areas are more difficult. A mobility scooter is available to use FOC. Maples Tearooms are fully accessible.

Dogs are welcome on leads.

There are special entry rates for pre-booked groups of 20 or more and guided tours are available by one of our gardeners – these must be pre-booked.

Please ask about our beautiful holiday let – Haywood Cabin – hidden at the top of the Maple Grove.
