For a splendid summer day out, visit the stunning Kentwell Gardens - a haven of peace and tranquility.

At this time of year, The Walled Garden and the Sunken Garden are at their most productive and colourful. The herb garden is flourishing and the moat walls are draped the foliage of soft roses. As the summer progresses, apples, pears and other fruit begins to ripen in the Walled Garden and, wherever you walk, you will catch a glimpse of sunlight sparkling on the water, either from the large moat which surrounds the House, or from one of the other ponds or moats.

Kentwell relies upon income from visitors to keep the House, Gardens and Grounds going. This comes mainly from special events which, currently, are impossible to hold. However, they are delighted to announce that the Gardens are now open for selected dates. The House and Moat House will remain closed.

Kentwell's Gardens are extensive and provide quiet space for comfortable relaxation in beautiful surroundings. Visitors should have little problem in keeping distant from other visitors!

Please book entry in advance (before 10am on the day of your visit) if you possibly can. 

The number of people on site each day will be limited. If you have booked entry, please check the website before travelling in case circumstances have changed. 

If you are a current Season Ticket holder or Historic Houses member, please also book tickets. If you have not pre-booked and the gardens reach maximum numbers, they may not be able to let you in.
