Welcome to Little Ponton Hall Gardens

Little Ponton Hall and its gardens nestle in the curve of the River Witham as it winds 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 and a listed dovecote. The most recent addition 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.


Opening dates for 2020


SNOWDROPS and ACONITES - Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th February 

The Gardens will be open from 11am to 4pm on both days of the weekend. The weather was kind to us last year and we enjoyed a record number of visitors. We hope for the same again this year and that you are able to join us! 

Homemade refreshments will be on sale, in aid of Little Ponton Church. There will be plants for sale in the Greenhouse and well behaved dogs on a lead are most welcome.

We look forward to seeing you then to welcome the first signs of spring.

Admission is £5 for adults and children under 16 are free.

If you require any further information please ring 01476 530216 or email



If you are part of a group and would like to arrange a private tour of the gardens when it is looking at its most spectacular, please get in touch and we will book you in. We have some spaces remaining so please get in touch! 

You will be welcomed by a member of the family and you will have the gardens to yourself for your enjoyment. The greenhouses will be open and plants will be for sale (while stocks last!). Refreshments will be provided and covered in the cost. Admission is £8 per person.
