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.

Private visit dates are available on request and the cost for 2019 is £7 a head. 

Arrival and departure times are flexible and can fit in around your plans. Bus parking is available if you require. You will be welcomed by a member of the family and have the garden to yourself. Refreshments will be served and are included in the price.
