Hodnet Hall Gardens
Attraction in Market Drayton, Shropshire
The gardens were started in 1922 when a chain of seven lakes and pools were created with rare trees and shrubs. Rhododendrons and camellias thrive in the acid soil; iros and other bog plants enjoy their position around the pools.
April is the perfect time to admire the camellias, crocuses, daffodils and the magnificent Magnolia Walk. May & June showcases rhododendrons, lilacs, azaleas and bluebell woods. High summer is brimming with peonies, hudrangeas, roses and many other flowering shrubs, the colours lasting right through September. Dogs welcome on a lead.
The half-timbered restaurant serves lunches and teas amongst a unique collection of big name trophies. Restaurant open 12-5pm, except for Fair Days.
