Hestercombe Gardens, Taunton - just two and a half miles from Taunton town centre are the spectacular Hestercombe Gardens. Over 40 acres of exquisite formal and landscape gardens and woodland, offering a year round destination for all the family. And your dogs are welcome!
Do run on the grass, splash in the pools, scramble in the woods or simply take time to 'stop and stare' at the breathtakingly beautiful views across the lakes, ponds and cascades with surprises around every corner and tranquil areas just for quiet contemplation. When every corner has been explored the day can be topped off with a sumptuous tea (with Chef's homemade cakes!) or a hearty lunch.
Events galore - talks, themed lunches, food and craft fairs, workshops, live music and seasonal delights.
Gift Shop, Plant Centre, Café with indoor and outdoor seating.

Gorgeous gardens - all year round. We love to walk the dogs and then enjoy a delicious lunch in the cosy Stables Restaurant or in the sunshine of the Courtyard. It's such a happy place with lots sorts...
I had lunch at Hestercombes cafe. It was absolutely gorgeous, their home made tomato chutney turned my cheese sandwich into an absolute delight and the chocolate pudding was heaven. Lovely walk afterwards...
I love taking my son to Hestercombe. There is so much space for him to enjoy and I get to enjoy the tranquility of the gardens at the same time!
