About the garden

Owned by

Four hundred years of changing styles have contributed to the charm of Hutton-in-the-Forest. Contemporary gates lead to the Walled Garden with herbaceous plants, heritage roses and trained fruit trees. Topiary terraces overlook the wildflower meadow, cascade and lake, while the Woodland Walk reveals a 17th-century dovecote.
