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.

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.

Our parterre garden has undergone significant changes in recent years but is now once again bursting with colour.

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.

We’ve had hard standing paths laid through sections of our park. These hard paths extend Fanny Boscawens walk and now enable you to take a less muddy, and completely cow free, stroll from reception to Great Wix Wood and our children’s adventure area. Follow the orange trail on our map.
