Hackthorn Hall's history and features
The 18th century Grade 1 listed Hall and surrounding formal gardens is situated in 40 acres of landscaped parkland. The parkland has depths of history that goes back to the Medieval times. The gardens, laid out around the Hall and Church, extend to around 15 acres and comprise of formal and woodland gardens as well as the ornamental and productive walled garden. The formal garden leads from the Hall down towards the lake with sections designed by Bunny Guiness. Inside the 400-year-old walled garden grows an abundance of fruit, vegetables and flowers from the cutting garden. Contained with it are also various glasshouse, one of which contains the largest privately owned and second-oldest grape vine in Britain, planted in 1868. These are some of the estates features, however the surrounding farm provides more. Hackthorn already hosts garden open days and garden weddings but we believe there is potential for a whole lot more.
The 400 year old Hackthorn Walled Gardens is home to the second oldest privately owned vine in Britain and have miraculously only had 6 gardeners looking after the gardens ever.
