Our Gardens

Thornbridge Hall is surrounded by 12 acres of quintessentially English gardens, set in the heart of the Peak District National Park. Designed at the end of the 19th Century to create a vision of '1,000 shades of green' which the owner wanted to be able to see from his bedroom window. 

The gardens are a perfect example of Victorian drive, determination and engineering to manipulate the landscape into a series of garden rooms.
