Welcome to Benington Lordship

Situated just four miles east of Stevenage in the picturesque village of Benington Lordship Gardens spread over seven acres, surrounding a fine Georgian manor house with remains of a Norman Castle and moat. Visitors of all ages will enjoy the peaceful location, a haven for wildlife that offers unspoilt views over the surrounding Hertfordshire countryside.

Throughout the year there is always something to see from the famous display of Snowdrops around the castle and moat in early spring, Scillas and Daffodils follow at Easter and the spectacular herbaceous borders that are a riot of colour all summer.

Other highlights include a Victorian Folly, Kitchen Garden, contemporary sculptures, Carp pond, wildlife area & Rose Gardens. During the year there are numerous special events to coincide with the gardens being at their best, details of which can be found on this website.
