About the garden

Hanham Court stands on the Via Julia or Julian Road above the River Avon at an ancient ferry crossing. What was essentially a solid Norman House has been embellished over many generations with Early English, Tudor and 18th and 19th century alteration and additions. Julian and Isabel Bannerman are award-winning garden designers to the Prince of Wales, they have created over fifteen years a deeply romantic and scented garden. The formal garden has luscious borders of old roses, tree peonies, lilies and fountains. An amazing ‘Dancing Crown’ fountain is in the woodland garden, which has a stream, pools, snowdrops, tree ferns, magnolias and temples. Outside of the walls lies a miniature park, a downland of wild flower meadows overlooking the River Avon and an orchard. Behind the Tithe Barn is a small vegetable and cutting garden and near it the loggia, where the teas and plants were sold.

They open up for charity events and the owners share the results of their attention to detail in this beautiful garden!

A very beautiful and tranquil garden to visit on NGS days or Rare Plant Fare days. There is the garden and the surrounding countryside to roam in plus tea and cake.

What a beautiful garden you can go at different times of the year and see an array of flowers. They open in February for a lovely snow drop event and then in June for all the summer flowers and a wonderful meadow walk. A must see place
