Visit the parkland at Hatchlands

Spanning over 422 acres, and open 363 days a year, our parkland at Hatchlands is a wonderful spot to enjoy the great outdoors. Just 45 minutes outside Greater London and with great stuff to do every season, why not stop by and enjoy a breath of fresh air.

The garden in summer

Opening times 

The wildflower meadow and our parterre garden are only open between April and October on the same days as our house. House open days are limited because Hatchlands is a family home. The west lawn in front of the house and the wider parkland, including our park walks, are open 363 days a year.

A family picnic at Hatchlands Park

Picnic spots 

You’ll find great picnic options all over the place. Throw a rug down on the lawn in front of the house or head further afield to one of the many picnic spots in the park. Our picnic areas are cow-free zones, so you can enjoy your food in peace. They’re marked on our map with a picnic table.

The parterre in summer at Hatchlands Park, Surrey

The Parterre Garden 

Our parterre garden has undergone significant changes in recent years but is now once again bursting with colour. At its best in June and July, you can drop by anytime between April and October to enjoy this tranquil suntrap, perfect for a quiet spot to sit and think. You can see it on days when the house is also open.

Donkeys at Hatchlands Park

Our donkeys 

We've fostered two donkeys, Callum and Morris. We've given them a happy and safe home where they can spend their days roaming our fields and their nights tucked up in our stable. Why not come and say hi, they might even let you tickle their noses.

The icehouse in the garden

The temple and icehouse 

Discover two of Hatchlands’ best kept secrets. Explore a short distance off the beaten track and you’ll find our classical stone temple installed by Hatchlands' last private owner and the icehouse, a Georgian fridge-freezer built in the 1750s.
