A beautiful Hampshire Garden and Wedding Venue

Overlooking the River Test, Houghton Lodge and Gardens is a unique Hampshire attraction for all the family. 
Built sometime before 1799 and probably intended as a fishing lodge, Houghton Lodge is one of the earliest examples of a Cottage Orné or Rural Retreat and one of the most beautiful historic houses and gardens in Hampshire.

Enjoy the delightful Herbaceous Border which is full of colour and discover unusual examples of Topiary Peacocks and a Topiary Dragon! Take a meandering Woodland Walk to a Grotto or amble around the Kitchen Garden and see a fully restored chalk cob Walled Garden. Visit the Hydroponic Greenhouse - a garden of the future in a garden of the past and the stunning Orchid House which houses many rare varieties. The house and gardens make a romantic wedding venue for ceremonies and receptions.
Fishing on the River Test is available at Houghton Lodge and is one of the beautiful rivers to fish along with plenty of Brown Trout and Grayling.
