Hartwell House Hotel Gardens
Set in 90 acres of parkland, Hartwell House Hotel, Restaurant and Spa now boasts a spring garden planted with snowdrops, daffodils, eranthis, primroses and anemones.
Hartwell House has a historic garden dating from around 1720 probably by James Gibbs with buildings, statues, obelisks, canals and an amazing topiary exhedra, but in 1738 was destroyed in keeping with the growing fashion for the landscape garden. A number of buidings from the original garden still survive.
A path, leading to the Canal Temple, has been planted with 10,000 daffodils.
The recently renovated Triumphal Arch and bridge, has been planted with old varieties of apples and the walls of the former kitchen garden support espaliered apricot, peach, pear and plum trees, of the same variety as those planted in 1856.
2018 - Hartwell House Gardens are open to residents and visitors taking high tea, lunch or dinner. Telephone before visiting. Pictures of the garden before its obliteration in 1738 can be seen in the house.
Now a National Trust Hotel.
