Thank you on behalf of my father and myself for such an enjoyable hour on the Hawk Walk on Friday morning. The hour spent with you was so interesting and informative. I have to say I was really excited about the prospect of this walk! It was a surprise treat for my father. We both really appreciated the opportunity to be so close to these magnificent birds – It was very special. Thank you again Robin, this was such a marvellous experience for us both.

The gardens at Wells House & Gardens were designed by renowned architect Daniel Robertson between the years of 1835 and 1838 and he introduced many landscape features including the Terrace Gardens, Radiating Parterre, Arboretum and Main Avenue. These gardens really do provide the perfect setting to relax and play.
You can also explore the natural beauty of Wells House & Gardens as you meander through the beautiful woodlands and discover the fairies and Gruffalos hidden within the trees. We have two woodland walks; The Lady Frances Walk and Mogues walk which are 1.2km each and promise to bring you on a journey of magic and wonder.
