Brief Description

The landscape garden at Hampden House dates from the mid-18th century and retains some elements of a formal layout. There is an area of woodland with an avenue to the the east.


Parts of the house date from the 14th century, though the most evident period is the remodelling that occurred in the early-18th century. The landscape was laid out in approximately 1740.
