Hestercombe Gardens, near Taunton Somerset

Discover Somerset and lose yourself in fifty acres of lakes, temples, cascades, tranquil woodland walks, formal terraces, vivid colours and views that take your breath away…..

This is Hestercombe - a unique combination of three centuries of garden design: Coplestone Warre Bampfylde's Georgian landscape garden, the Victorian terrace and shrubbery and the stunning Edwardian garden design by Sir Edwin Lutyens and Gertrude Jekyll.

All of our gardens have undergone acclaimed restoration works and today provide important examples of gardens in contrasting styles that continue to grow and develop. The award-winning visitor facilities include the warm and welcoming Stables Kitchen Cafe with a bright, airy courtyard. Plus find the Column Room Restaurant inside Hestercombe House serving quintissentially British afternoon teas and delicious light lunches.

The Gardens Shop is full of beautiful things for the home and garden and the Plant Centre is well stocked with a wide variety of plants. These facilities and the well-appointed picnic area and under 7s playground have free entry. The restored 17th century watermill complex showcases the historic uses of renewable energy alongside the original working mill machinery and is set in the heart of the gardens.

There are so many things to do! The Somerset Gardens at Hestercombe are open all year round (except Christmas Day).
