We visited in the Spring about 4 years ago, and they were starting to put the gardens back to the original plans of Gertrude Jekyll.

There's plenty for children to do here at Hestercombe. During school holidays (and throughout December) we put on fun, exploratory trails; at Christmas there are Father Christmas experiences and family theatre, plus family skating. During the summer we hold Terrific Tuesdays based around the outdoors, arts and crafts. Outside of holidays, there are around 50 acres of grounds and gardens for children to run around and explore. We have a small play area too, and a child-friendly cafe menu.
