Hole Park Gardens
Hole Park is one of the best-known gardens in Kent and is a worthy winner of Visit Kent’s Garden of the Year award in 2016.
Four generations of the Barham family have created a wonderful 16 acre garden in a magical parkland setting that must be everyone’s dream. Extensive yew hedges and herbaceous borders should be at their best for our opening, with meadow and woodland gardens to explore as well, all rounded off with homemade teas and light in The Coach House.
Hole Park has been owned by the Barham family for the past four generations and is set in over 200 acres of superb classic parkland. The colourful gardens enjoy far reaching views over the hills, woods and fields of the picturesque Kentish Weald. They offer a delightful mix of formal design and more naturalised planting, giving colour throughout the seasons. The house, which is a private family home and therefore not open, was largely reconstructed in 1959 and is now little more than a quarter of its previous size. It resembles the house as it used to be before additions in the Elizabethan style were built in 1830.
Hole Park Gardens are open every day in spring with limited opening times in summer & autumn.
