Overview

Woodhall is a privately owned family estate in rural Hertfordshire.

The estate, which centres around the 18th century mansion house let to Heath Mount School, brings together a residential and commercial property portfolio, an exclusive events and filming location and agricultural, forestry and conservation operations.

The Walled Gardens make a historic and atmospheric event space, with gently sloping ground and beautiful views over the surrounding parkland and towards some of our most ancient oak and hornbeam trees. The Walled Gardens can also be hired in conjunction with the Grade II listed Garden House, providing accommodation for up to eight guests, and an acre of private gardens.
