Garden Events 2024

Snowdrops and Aconites

10th and 11th February

We will be open on  Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th February from 11am to 4pm. Please come and see our Snowdrops and Aconites as they begin to bloom and give us the first indication that Spring is in the air. The River Walk and Spring Garden will be open and you can explore the gardens at your leisure. Little Ponton Church will also be open and is accessible through the garden. The Greenhouses will be open and will have plants for sale (while stocks last!). Well behaved dogs on leads are most welcome.

There will be a selection of stalls with various items for sale. Hot and cold refreshments will be on sale in the Tea Barn.

Admission is £8 per adult and children under 16 are free.


Welcome to

Little Ponton Hall

Little Ponton Hall and its gardens nestle in the curve of the River Witham as it winds its way through the rolling countryside of South Lincolnshire towards Lincoln.
The 18th century house, home to George and Bianca McCorquodale and their three children, is surrounded by spacious lawns dominated by a 200 year old cedar tree. In the walled vegetable garden are the Victorian greenhouses and a listed dovecote. The most recent addition is the development of a herb garden.
Adjoining the garden is the tiny village church dedicated to St. Guthlac.
In the early spring, swathes of snowdrops clothe the river banks, and aconites form a golden carpet around the Church walk.
This is a magical, secret garden, rarely opened to the public.
