Welcome to Hergest Croft Gardens

We are now CLOSED to the public, except our Season Ticket holders.  A Season Ticket gives admission to the gardens every day of the year; they cost £27.00 each, run for a full twelve months, and can be purchased through the Estate Office on 01544 230160 or through the tearooms on Wednesday and Sunday.  We will re-open on Saturday 5 March 2022, for weekends only, then daily from  26 March 2022 until 30 October, 11.30 to 5.00.  Dogs on leads are welcome.

Set in the heart of the Welsh Marches, this 70 acre garden has stunning views towards the Black Mountains. Created over 120 years by four generations of the Banks family, Hergest Croft has a unique collection of over 5,000 rare plants, trees and shrubs as well as more than 90 'Champion' trees. There are gorgeous flower borders, an old fashioned Kitchen Garden, Azalea Garden, Maple Grove, and Park Wood. Spectacular spring and autumn colour make this a garden for all seasons.

A delightful response from one of our recent visitors: "We visited Hergest today, September 7th. We had such a lovely visit that I thought it well worthwhile making contact to leave a comment or two. Although we arrived before the official opening time we were fortunate enough to meet your head gardener,Steve, who obviously has green fingers but is also a great conversationalist and has such an amazing fund of horticultural knowledge. The outcome of this was being able to acquire an Acer which I had only seen once fifteen years ago. We had a delightful stroll around the gardens and our visit was then enhanced even further when we had lunch in the tea room. I wonder where you managed to find such a cheerful and friendly group of ladies to look after your customers and to serve up top quality food. Our plant purchases were even carried to the car by Angela your delightful receptionist.  What an experience, congratulations to them all."
