The Old Kitchen Garden
A one acre former Victorian walled kitchen garden now with the addition of lawns and herbaceous borders while still providing fruit, vegetables and herbs for the house
The Clematis Walk
An orchard filled with a selection of old-fashioned apple varieties, Walnuts and Mulberry. Boarded with several blue, yellow and white Clemantis and shrubs.
The Woodland Walk
A selection of Silver Birch, Sweet Chestnut, Oak and Scots Pine trees filled with a collection of wildlife including approximately one hundred species of birds.
The Magnolia Garden and Lake
Dominated by the Magnolia x soulangeana, this large spreading shrub bears many fragrant blooms in Spring.
As well as two Lakes, The Arboretum, the Grade II listed Glasshouse and the 18th Century Grade II listed Ice Well, these beautiful gardens begin with a burst of early Spring bulbs. The spectacular Rhododendrons and Azaleas appear in May and June through to the mid-summer delights of the ‘Spider Garden’. Full summer colours of Hydrangeas followed by autumn berried shrubs and leaf tints complete what is truly a garden for all seasons.
Hoveton Hall boasts an excellent on-site restaurant - Garden Kitchen Cafe, run by Alex Firman.
