Beautiful, tranquil gardens for a peaceful stroll. Even as an adult I enjoyed spotting the wooden hares amongst the foliage and I liked the contrast between the walled garden and woodland area. I currently walk with a stick and found the paths accessible and it...More

We had a trip to Hare hill gardens, the flowers were blooming. There are a couple of benches were you can have a picnic. I think it's a bit over grown in areas. It doesn't take long to walk around it's only small compared to...More

Hare Hill is not well kept and was overgrown in places. The walled garden was devoid of attractive plants and flowers and I have visited better walled gardens in my local parks for free. There are far better NT gardens near by that are much...More

Paid £7 per adult and £3.50 for children to essentially visit a park... there's very little that distinguishes this as a national trust location. Went for the Cadbury's egg hut and you don't even hunt a egg! You hunt for letters and then presented with...More
