Two miles north-west of Ross on Wye via the A49 and a minor road.
Moraston House was built by John Tristram for Whaley Armitage in 1811-15, with the requirement that the work be carried out to the satisfaction of John Matthews of Belmont, Hereford, patron of Humphry Repton and writer on the Picturesque.
The property was acquired in 1873 by George Heywood Hadfield, whose grandson, the garden historian Miles Hadfield, described the gardens in an article in Country Life, 6th April 1967.
