Elegant country house with highly distinctive gardens
The vision of one man, Hinton Ampner is best known for its magnificent garden with stunning views to the south.
The elegant country house was remodelled by Ralph Dutton, the 8th and last Lord Sherborne, in 1960 after a devastating fire, and contains his collection of Georgian and Regency furniture, Italian pictures and objets d'art.
The gardens were also laid out by Ralph Dutton and are widely acknowledged as a masterpiece of 20th-century design, mixing formal and informal planting, providing all year round interest.
The lawns are awash with colour as spring blooms are popping their heads up. The greenhouse is full of blossom from the ‘Duke of York’ peach tree. Come April and May the woodlands will have a stunning carpet of bluebells.
