Join the Travel Club on this Excursion to Hinton Ampner Gardens, National Trust.
Best known for its fine garden, Hinton Ampner is an elegant country house with an outstanding collection of furniture, paintings and objets d’art. After a fire in 1960, the house was remodelled by the owner, Ralph Dutton, the eight and last Lord of Sherborne who was responsible for the design of the gardens.
The garden is widely acknowledged as a masterpiece of 20th century design. The five hectare garden unites a formal layout with varied and informal plantings in pastel shades. Set in superb Hampshire countryside, there are magnificent vistas across parkland and south downs. Highlights include the dell, a sunken garden with fine topiary, and the recently restored walled garden.
