Hergest Croft Gardens lie in the heart of the Welsh Marches with stunning views towards the Black Mountains. Created over 100 years by three generations of the Banks family, there are hidden valleys, woodland glades, open parkland, gorgeous flower borders and striking autumn colour. The beauty and peace make Hergest Croft a garden to visit at all seasons and for all ages. There are four distinct gardens which extend over 50 acres, with over 4000 rare shrubs and trees.

The Kitchen Garden contains an avenue of ancient apple trees over a riot of bulbs in the spring. There are magnificent 120 foot double herbaceous border, an old fashioned rose garden and traditional fruit and vegetable garden.

The Edwardian House is surrounded by many special plants, including magnolias, cherries and hydrangeas. The old rockery and the croquet lawn are enclosed by tall yew hedges containing vases of sweetly scented lilies.

Park Wood lies in a secluded valley hidden deep within an ancient oak wood. There are many giant rhododendrons and exotic trees, creating a Himalayan scene that will surprise and amaze you.

The Azalea Garden is dominated by a massive avenue of cedars, with spectacular azaleas shaded by many of the magnificent birches and maples that form part of the National Collections held at Hergest Croft.
