Stock Hill gardens are a delight all year round

Stock Hill makes your visit special at any time of the year. The gardens are laid out in the 'Gardenesque' style of John Claudius Loudon and country fashion of Gertrude Jekyll, combining herbaceous borders with riots of colour amid terraced lawns interspersed with geometrical flowerbeds. The landscaped grounds are set out for pleasant, relaxed rambling and its inhabitants number a great deal of local wildlife, including many birds for those minded to simply sit and watch.

 

A small lake fed by a meandering stream has a number of trout and carp and attracts ducks and moorhens
as well as the inevitable heron. Even the iridescent blue flash of a Kingfisher can suddenly brighten your day
if you are fortunate enough to be around when his lunch bell rings.


Most guests simply delight in strolling around the grounds enjoying the sounds, sights and smells of the clean,
green landscape of this English Country House Hotel.
Nothing is guaranteed to improve the appetite better than
a leisurely stroll around Stock Hill's
eleven acres.
