About Basingstoke, Hampshire, Basingstoke, England

This historic estate tells the story of the history of England; through its incarnation from Royal deer park, to hunting lodge, to grand aristocratic residence welcoming great political characters. It certainly has been touched by greatness throughout its many years.

The house is approached via Grade II listed ornate wrought iron gates. Beyond, a sweeping drive leads through immaculate pasture and parkland where sheep and deer nestle under century old trees. The house itself is a Grade II* Listed mansion house, whilst the immaculate Grade I parkland allows for French style vistas from the house across landscaped avenues to uninterrupted countryside.
This historic house has been painstakingly restored to its nineteenth century grandeur complete with original detailing and craftsmanship. Whilst infinitely beautiful and grand it readily fulfils its function as a home for entertaining; easily accommodating family, guests and staff. It is skilfully designed for a life with service, having numerous staircases and ancillary rooms to allow staff to discreetly pass between family and entertaining areas.

The botanical gardens and grounds hold as much historic interest as the house and have a rich botanical and architectural story to tell. The layout of the gardens dates back to the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries and their design is attributed to Charles Bridgeman and James Gibbs.

The Park, with medieval origins forms part of an impressive and natural landscape fit for a house of this stature. Today the grounds are a perfect balance of manicured lawns, avenues, walks and terraces, interspersed with specimen trees. Beyond the formal design are large expanses of pasture which join woodland and farmland in the far distance, as well as Hackwood's own deer park and an ornamental eighteenth century woodland garden.

Spring Wood, thought to be the sole surviving example of a garden wood that is laid out in the French style has eight sectors divided by walkways, many of which hide historic wonders including a temple, a fountain and an amphitheatre. In the spring, the woodland is a picture of colour filled with bulbs and wild flowers.

Hackwood Park enjoys stunning, uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside.
The estate also includes a number of additional properties including a stable yard and coach house, two detached houses and two entrance lodges.
