Welcome to Hodnet Hall Gardens

For over fifty years my family have welcomed visitors to share with us the gardens here at Hodnet. We gain great pleasure from them and hope that our visitors will leave with happy memories of their own.

We’re delighted to announce that Hodnet Hall Gardens are to reopen to the public on Sunday, 28 June 2020 11am-5pm

This follows new government guidelines advising that gardens can now be open to the public, as long as special measures are taken to reduce the potential risk of infection. We will continue to monitor information from Public Health England but visitors are advised to consult current NHS guidelines on how to prevent catching and spreading COVID-19 before visiting.

We recommend keeping at least two metres apart from other people (outside of your household) when you are visiting Hodnet Hall Gardens and ask that visitors use hand sanitiser at all sanitising stations – located by the Visitor Entrance and Exit and outside all toilet and restaurant facilities. Please do not enter the gardens if you feel unwell with symptoms – fever, cough, shortness of breath or are self-isolating.

With 65 acres of stunning woodland landscape to explore, we will be welcoming visitors back just as our summer flower season kicks off. The safety and wellbeing of our staff and visitors is of utmost importance and we will be taking all necessary precautions to safeguard the welfare of everyone working at and visiting Hodnet Hall Gardens. In order to ensure the safety of staff and visitors we reserve the right to refuse admission to the gardens or restaurant if necessary.

 

Tips for visiting

  • Use contactless card payment when buying your ticket in order to maintain social distancing between you and our staff.
  • Look out for signs in the car park that tell you how to enter the gardens, as changes have been made to some visitor routes, particularly on arrival.
  • Use two metre social distancing when queuing for entry into the gardens, restaurant and toilets. Only one person from each household will be allowed to purchase refreshments at any one time. The toilets will operate on a one-in-one-out basis. The number of available toilets will also be limited.
  • Use the hand sanitising stations at the entrance and exit to the gardens and outside the toilet and restaurant facilities.
  • Look out for signs around the gardens, as one-way systems may be in place in some locations.
  • As catering will be on a limited basis we ask you to be patient, use the litter bins provided or please take all litter home to recycle.
  • Bring your own mobility aids, as we will be unable to provide wheelchairs to ensure staff and visitor safety.
  • Exercise courtesy, caution and common sense when visiting and in particular, when using the toilet facilities which will have capacity limits and a one-in-one-out system in place.
  • There will be no First Aid response from Hodnet Hall Gardens staff available for visitors – please take care and behave sensibly around the gardens and supervise all children closely.
  • There will be no seating available inside the restaurant and outside seating will be limited.
  • Dogs are allowed but must be on a short lead at all times.

While Hodnet Hall Gardens have taken all reasonable care to follow government COVID-19 safety guidelines, visitors enter at their own risk.
