Hatchlands Park

Visiting Hatchlands in wet weather

Our parkland is now open 363 days a year so that you can enjoy walking here all year round. However, our house and garden will still only be open between April and October. This means that access to our café, shop and courtyard during the winter months will be via the parkland only. It’s likely that you’ll encounter some mud so please dress according to the weather with wellies or walking boots strongly recommended, even if you’re not planning on walking very far. If you're planning on pushing a buggy through the park you may want to carefully consider your route, just ask our reception team for the best paths to take.

A portrait of Fanny Boscawen

Fanny Boscawen and the Bluestockings 

Fanny Boscawen was the first ‘Lady of the House’ at Hatchlands and oversaw the construction of the mansion that you see today. This remarkable woman, an often overlooked founding member of the Bluestocking Society, was well respected by her intellectual peers in fashionable society, male and female alike.
