Formal gardens

Staying true to Emily Meynell Ingram’s 19th century design, Hoar Cross Hall’s formal gardens are truly beautiful, meticulously maintained by our dedicated groundsmen, they feature manicured lawns, gravel pathways, rose gardens, herbaceous borders, fountains, line avenues, water gardens, herb gardens (used by the kitchen), a rock garden, a sunken garden and shrub borders.

THE GROUNDS

Parks and woodland

Hoar Cross Hall’s grounds boast more than 30 acres of very mature woodland, much of it planted in its original scheme. You’ll find avenues of beech, oak and lime trees with different species planted inside, including cherry, holly, birch, ash, evergreen oak and fir. Surrounding Hoar Cross Hall is picturesque parkland and an abundance of wildlife.

THE GROUNDS

Lakes and Italian water garden

A perfect space to relax and unwind. Parterres, formed with box hedging and shrubs, complement this beautiful garden’s water features, which are supplied from the original underground rainwater storage tanks. We have six lakes on-site, where wildlife is encouraged and protected.

THE GROUNDS

Outdoor pursuits

Take to the courts for a friendly match, practice your swing on the Hoar Cross driving range, or enjoy the calming frustration of hitting the bullseye in an archery class. All activities are available during your stay, simply visit our leisure reception or give us a call to enquire.
