View location

Standing proud and strong, Berrington Hall with its red sandstone exterior dominates Capability Brown’s final visionary landscape, commanding panoramic views across Herefordshire and Wales. Despite the mansion’s austere exterior, inside visitors can explore the surprisingly intimate and elegant family rooms. Below stairs, the servants’ rooms are sometimes open for the general public to view, dark and hidden, carefully planned to conceal what was once a place of hustle and bustle.

Surrounding the mansion is undulating grassy parkland, leading to a fourteen-acre serpentine lake. This special place is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) with its very own ‘Heron Island’, a large colony return here every spring to build nests and raise young. For little ones, the adjoining woodlands offer a great space to relax and enjoy some natural play with den building and nature spotting.

The gem of Berrington Hall is the unique walled garden. One segment, the kitchen garden has featured several modern art installations over the past few years and consists of Georgian-inspired herb beds, orchards, vegetable and flower beds. Attached to the kitchen garden is an impressive curved-wall section which is currently being restored by the National Trust after a housing a farmyard for the past century. Visitors are welcome to come and view this space and follow the journey of ‘Capability’ Brown’s final vision brought to light.


Berrington Hall is open weekends only 10am to 4pm, until February 18, then 10am to 5pm. From November 6, 2023, the site will be open daily from 10am to 4pm (gardens and parkland), during the week the mansion/castle will be open for guided tours only.
