Originating in the 16th century, Hestercombe House was enlarged and altered in the 18th and 19th centuries. In the 18th century it was the home of the gentleman architect Coplestone Warre Bamfylde, who extensively improved the grounds. In 1903 the architect Sir Edwin Lutyens was commissioned to create a new formal garden with a planting scheme by Gertrude Jekyll.
