Hinton Ampner House and Garden
Best known for its fine garden, Hinton Ampner is an elegant country house with an outstanding collection of furniture, paintings and objets d'art. After a fire in 1960, the house was remodelled by the owner, Ralph Dutton, the eigth and last Lord Sherborne, who was also responsible for the design of the gardens.
The garden is widely acknowledged as a masterpiece of 20th century design. The five hectare (twelve acre) garden unites a formal layout with varied and informal plantings in pastel shades. Set in superb Hampshire countryside, there are magnificent vistas across parkland and the South Downs. Highlights of the garden include the dell, a sunken garden with fine topiary, and the recently restored walled garden.
The tea room offers a variety of locally sourced products, home-made cakes and cream teas.
There is a shop selling products from local honey to home-grown plants when available.
