It was predicted in 1958 that Hodnet "would one day take its place among the major gardens of Britain." Now the glorious fulfillment of that prophecy is simply waiting for you to enjoy. Stroll among an inspirational 60 acres of forest trees, flowering shrubs, sweeping lawns and ornamental pools, ponds, streams and waterfalls. Enjoy a delicious light lunch or afternoon tea in the gardens spacious tea-rooms, housing many hunters trophies from Africa.Hodnet Hall Gardens has been home to the Heber-Percy family for several centuries, with each generation adding significantly to the ambience and splendor of the garden. Sitting above the magical main pool is the house lieing in a vibrant and colorful island of trees, shrubs and flowery enclosures. Children will love watching the ducks and famous black swans swim by as the afternoon sunlight bounces off the great lake. Look out for the giant gunnera leaves (in April, May), measuring six feet across and ten feet tall, enough to shelter an entire family under if you should fall victim to April showers!
