Hergest Croft was built in 1895 to a design by Richard Drew. During World War II, the house was requisitioned and used for a school. It later became an extension of Lady Hawkins School, Kington, and finally housed the Herefordshire Archives until it was released back to the Lawrence family in 1972. It now contains five flats and facilities for visitors including the Tearoom and Gift Shop.
The gardens are what most people are aware of as they extend over 28 ha (70 acres) with more than five thousand rare trees and shrubs. They are open to the public and there are a series of events held throughout the year.
