HF Holidays Celebrates National Gardening Week

With the UK’s biggest celebration of gardening, RHS National Gardening Week, taking place from April 14 to 20 2014, HF Holidays is highlighting its selection of UK Garden Tours. These are led by expert guides and encourage guests to experience the colour, variety and beauty of Britain’s best public and private gardens.

Offering a departure during National Gardening Week, the company’s seven-night Guided Garden Tour of Cornwall takes in the region’s array of flamboyant plants including an abundance of rhododendrons, camellias and magnolias. There are visits to the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Europe’s largest garden restoration project – the ravine garden at Trebah, the Trengwainton National Trust garden, Lamorran Gardens and Bonython Estate Gardens. With departures on April 19 or May 10, the cost is £799 with accommodation at the company’s Chy Morvah Country House in St Ives.

Alternatively, and new for 2014, is a History of English Garden Design holiday, based in the Derbyshire Dales. This tour focuses on the different styles and eras of garden design, from those influenced by the French to the distinctly English landscape gardens of ‘Capability Brown’, styles such as the Italianate and Arts and Crafts and on to 20th century designs. Gardens visited include Melbourne Hall, planned by Thomas Coke in the 18th century, Tatton Park, Lyme Park, Chatsworth House, the garden of Italianate style at Renishaw Hall, the eclectic garden of Biddulph Grange and Trentham Gardens, a 19th century garden recently restored with very modern planting styles.

Starting May 31, the cost of this seven night holiday is £799 inclusive of accommodation at the company’s Peveril of the Peak Country House in the village of Thorpe.

In addition, all first time guests on the above seven-night holidays will receive a £100 discount which means that the cost is reduced to £699.

All prices are per person, based on twin-share, and include full-board, visits to a range of private and public gardens, entrances to gardens, transport and the services of an experienced leader.
