Lower Hope Gardens are privately owned by Mr and Mrs Clive Richards.  The gardens are being opened to the public for Breast Cancer Haven.

The well-tended gardens span 7 acres facing South and West consisting of herbaceous borders, rose walks, laburnum tunnel, Mediterranean, bog and Italian Gardens and the recent addition of a Japanese Garden.

Conservatories and large glasshouses contain exotic species orchids, colourful butterflies and bougainvilleas. Visitors can also take a botanical stroll through the lime tree walk to the wildlife pond, landscaped with wildflowers and abundant in wildlife.

Afternoon teas are served in the Old Hop Kiln in a sheltered courtyard. Visitors can enjoy delicious locally sourced cakes served with a refreshing cup of tea and farm grown apple juice.

Lower Hope gardens offer easy access for wheelchair users and those with other disabilities. Every effort has been made to maximise the amount of accessibility in and around public areas including toilet facilities.

Admission payable on the day:

Adult: £6.00
Child: £1.00

With thanks to Mr & Mrs Clive Richards for opening their private garden in aid of Breast Cancer Haven, Hereford.
