What a beautiful place. It feels like a truly secret garden: meadowy and wild, tucked away down windy narrow lanes, with parking in a nearby field. You would think you were centuries away from the M20 and Maidstone's fringes. The current tenants, pro-bakers who run...More

This property is so interesting and so personal. Not all of it is open to the public because it is tenanted. The gardens are truly inspiring and lovingly looked after. The opening times are very limited but well worth planning.
