Hellens House & Gardens


This beautiful historic house – Hellens Manor – in Much Marcle, Herefordshire & the Wye Valley, is a living monument to much of England’s history. Hellens Manor remains a home and not a museum although it contains a wealth of period furnishings, paintings and decorations. Hellens was founded in the 13th century and there are additions from Tudor and Stuart times. The house has connections with the Black Prince, Queen Mary and the Civil War. There is some fine furniture and pictures in the period rooms. Hellens is situated in pleasant grounds with gardens, ponds and trees, a physic garden, knot garden and a labyrinth. Hellens is open from Easter Day until the end of September each year. Hellens is open on Wednesday, Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday afternoons. Entry is by guided tour and there are tours at 1pm, 2pm and 3pm. Tour times may be different during the Hellensmusic Festival in May, Hellens Garden Festival in June and the Big Apple event in October, please see our events and activities page for details.


Hellens is a rare one for us however, most definitely not one that I could leave out of this chapter. The reason it is rare is it literally only open 2 days a week, Wednesday and Sundays and on Bank Holiday Monday afternoons and it is also worth noting, Hellens only accepts group bookings by appointment only. Steeped in history, this has to be one of Herefordshire’s. best kept hidden gems and I fell in love with the house and gardens after visiting, when it was highly recommended to me by Sir Roy Strong’s PA over at the Laskett Gardens, another attraction in this chapter. I highly recommend visiting this attraction, but I think it is always prudent to check their website for all the latest opening times. But one thing I will end on is Hellens is the sort of attraction that is once seen, never forgotten.
