Heddon Hall Garden

Heddon Hall garden is popular with well known Gardeners - find out why!

Whenever it has been opened in the past for the NGS, Heddon Hall Garden has attracted widespread admiration.Jane Keatley began her work here in 1987, with creative input from luminaries such as Carol Klein and Roy Lancaster. 
Taking advantage of its sheltered position, she has made it very much a gardener’s garden, with a wonderful collection of exotic species, shrubs and ferns, many of which are the results of dendrological trips abroad.  The walled garden, laid out by Penelope Hobhouse, has clipped box hedges and cordoned fruit trees as well as flowers, herbs and vegetables. The mainly herbaceous rose garden is home to some ‘bizarre’ pleached limes trees. This leads onto a glorious informal rockery and bog garden, where the River Heddon tumbles into the three renovated stew ponds.  Enjoy the intimate valley setting from the terrace afterwards with a delicious home made cream tea.
