Hestercombe Gardens has both a beautiful house and landscaped gardens. There are play areas, ducks to feed (you can buy feed there) and many water features which were a big hit with Leo who wanted to climb in them all! The walks are lovely and there are lots of little areas and viewpoints to discover around the grounds. We had a lovely family day here!
☕️ 🧁 Great food options! The Stables restaurant has afternoon tea, brunch or lunch. The coffee shop has pasties, great cakes & ice cream. There is seating inside both, or in an undercover courtyard or outside.
🧺 There is a designated picnic area near the play area at the entrance. Picnics are not permitted elsewhere in the gardens.
