About Wolfe Hall

Wolfe Hall is a new garden for this year’s event. It is a 16th century house and former ecclesiastical retreat in 5.5 acres of land. The current owners, Mark & Joanne Howard, bought the house in late 2018 and since 2021 they have changed the grounds from mostly horse paddock to gardens.
Although new to gardening, Mark & Jo have planted 200+ trees, 150m of hedging, 5000+ plants and 10,000+ spring bulbs. The gardens include an established orchard – which is probably the site of the original house; a busy vegetable plot; a large pond (with deep water); a new orchard of English heritage apple trees; various artworks including a large kinetic sculpture and a towering granite torso; 1.5 acres area of perennials & grasses. The perennials & grasses garden is loosely styled on a Piet Oudolf approach and was planted in 2022.

The entrance for the day is via the stable block where tea, coffee & cake and WC are available.

Please be aware that our grounds are not perfectly flat and we have deep water. Robust wheelchairs should be able to access most of the garden provided the weather is dry.
