The garden at Hinton Ampner

The garden at Hinton Ampner was the creation of one man and is widely acknowledged as a masterpiece of 20th-century garden design and it mixes formal and informal planting with fine vistas throughout.

The walled garden

Dating back to the Tudor house we think that the walled garden could have originally been the hop garden.
 
Lined with 19th-century espalier apple and pear trees, the garden is once again being used to grow a rich variety of organic fruits and vegetables. We often use this fresh produce in the Stables tea room.
 
You can also enjoy the blooms from the flower garden inside as well as out as they are used for arrangements displayed in the house. 
 

Garden history

No visit to Hinton Ampner would be complete without a visit to the parish church of All Saints, dating from the 13th century. It is the final resting place of Ralph Dutton and his ancestors.
 
Don’t forget to learn about our dedicated group of volunteers who are restoring our historic greenhouses back to their former glory when you visit.
