13th May 2020 – CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: The public car park is now open, as are the Formal House Gardens and Secret Gardens.  How Hill House and the public toilets remain closed.


House Car Park

The car park directly behind the house is reserved for guests attending How Hill events except family fun days. For Fun Days please park in the public car park.

Public car park

For access to the tearoom, gardens, River Ant, Toad Hole Cottage, Electric Eel wildlife water trail and wildlife walking trail please park in the public car park, which is located slightly down the road from How Hill House.
