Discover the Stunning Seasonal Garden at Benthall Hall This quaint 19th century terraced garden is small but once the domain of the botanist George Maw, it is filled with great artefacts of horticultural significance. Highlights include a beautiful rose garden, fruit trees, mountains of clematis and peonies and freely naturalised crocuses and daffodils. If you can, take a tour led by the head gardener who will guide you around the site and give you a fantastic potted history of the estate and the family and staff who have lived and worked there–interesting. The hall itself is beautiful to explore and then leave time for snacks and drinks and cake in the outstanding tea rooms.
What can guests enjoy at Benthall Hall?
Located on a hill above the gorge of the River Severn, this fine stone house features mullioned and transom windows, a beautiful interior with sculpted oak stairs and painted plaster ceilings and oak panelling.
The new house was built in 1535, but Benthalls have been living on this site since the Middle Ages. During this period, the house was part of several fascinating events from the Civil War to the Industrial Revolution.
In the garden there are beautiful crocus displays to be seen in spring and fall, there is also an informal and carefully restored plantman's greenhouse, an old kitchen greenhouse and an fascinating Restoration church.
