Hillersdon House

The gardens at Hillersdon House have undergone a massive restoration and redevelopment. Sympathetic to the beautiful, rolling, Devon countryside, abundant natural water and the Gardens now contain an inspiring collection of the natural, formal, and contemporary.

At the Garden Lake a huge new collection of Rhododendrons has been planted.

As the last of the spectacular parkland Daffodils fade, the natural woodland Bluebells will begin their glorious show in May. At the same time the new Transylvanian Meadow bank will begin its’ first flowering. This meadow will continue to develop in future years and will include the exquisitely scented Pheasant’s Eye daffodil in May.

In the heart of the Estate is the one acre, terraced Walled Garden. This has become a beautiful as well as productive Garden area. Another nod to the history of the Estate is the newly planted traditional Cider Orchard. This contains heritage local varieties of Cider apples.

Adjacent to the Orchard is a delightful and intriguing new Stumpery – constructed entirely of stumps from the Estate and Hillersdon Wood. An Eighteenth Century shell grotto, the only remnant of an ancient garden, is soon to be restored and will become the focal point of a new fernery.

To date three historic Lakes have been dredged and restored, and an entirely new, Park Lake created.
