Renishaw Hall & Gardens wins HHA / Christie’s Garden of the Year 2015
Announced in May 2015, Renishaw Hall & Gardens received the Garden of the Year, awarded by the Historic Houses Association and sponsored by Christie’s. Now in its thirty-first year, this prestigious national award is designed to recognise the importance of some of the country’s most spectacular gardens with outstanding horticultural and public appeal.
Richard Compton, President of the Historic Houses Association commented: “These wonderful gardens at Renishaw are enjoyed each year by many thousands of visitors who may also visit the house on special tours. It is a great pleasure to see this Award go to such a very special place.”
Alexandra, owner of Renishaw Hall & Gardens said: “When my mother and father took on Renishaw Hall and its grounds they worked tirelessly on the restoration and redesign of the gardens to bring them back to their original glory. It’s wonderful to think that in the forty plus years since my parents first came to Renishaw, the gardens have today been recognised as winners of a prestigious national award like this. It’s testament to their hard work and the continuous hard work of our gardening team here at Renishaw Hall and Gardens”.
