Welcome to Little Ponton Hall Gardens

Little Ponton Hall and its gardens nestle in the curve of the River Witham as it wends its way through the rolling countryside of South Lincolnshire towards Lincoln.

The 18th century house, home to Mr and Mrs George McCorquodale, is surrounded by spacious lawns dominated by a 200 year old cedar tree. In the walled vegetable garden are the Victorian greenhouses, full of exotic plants, and a listed dovecote. The most recent project is the development of a herb garden.

Adjoining the garden is the tiny village church dedicated to St. Guthlac.

In the early spring, swathes of snowdrops clothe the river banks, and aconites form a golden carpet around the Church walk.

This is a magical, secret garden, rarely opened to the public.
