Hutton-in-the-Forest Garden

Hutton-in-the-Forest Garden



There is still the feel of a medieval forest as one approaches Hutton, as the house is largely surrounded by trees. The layout of the garden surrounding the house has not changed since 1705, when it was described as being in very good condition.

Visit the beautiful 18thC walled garden which dates back to the 1730s, now a spectacular flower garden with beds and borders of spring bulbs, herbaceous and annual flowers, set against the dramatic backdrop of the house and trees.

The terraces and topiary, to the south and west of the house act as a delicate foil to a massive strength of the architecture and were considerably restored in the 19thC.
