Hopton Hall Gardens

This property is free for HHA Friends
Hopton, Derbyshire, DE4 4DF
01629 540923

Hopton Hall, dating back to 1414, lies on the edge of the White Peak National Park. In the 1400s Hopton Hall boasted an estate of 3,700 acres, some of which now stands under the Carsington Reservoir.

Spencer our Manager, has virtually restored the formal gardens and created many new and interesting features including the 1 acre walled garden in which we have planted over 2000 roses in 40 individual beds surrounded by 5000 neatly trimmed box plants.
After much dedicated hard work, we have added a Laburnum Tunnel and a number of walks, the Beech, Badger and Spring walks: a small Arboretum and Pinetum have been created as well as the generation of two small ponds and a wildlife lake.
Follow the 2 km of meandering paths along the croquet lawn & rosewalk, around 2 ornamental ponds leading to the wildlife lake, Arboretum, Laburnum tunnel, Birch Avenue and more, creating a wonderful Summer Spectacular with visual surprises at each corner.

This property offers free access to HHA Friends and Members during normal opening hours - please check opening times.


Well signed off B5035 between Ashbourne and Matlock.
