A delightful country house garden

This is one of the best known gardens in Kent, 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.

Hole Park Gardens are open everyday in spring with limited opening times in summer & autumn. Please see Visitor Information page for opening times and dates. In spring visitors can enjoy the wonderful carpet of bluebells, daffodils, camellias, wisteria, magnolia and other spring delights. In summer the long borders are filled with colourful herbaceous plants with the exotic border coming to life in late summer.  The woodland area and gardens are also a delight in autumn with trees planted specifically with autumn colour in mind.

gardens

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 are a skilful 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.

The nearby village of Rolvenden and the town of Cranbrook are equally worth visiting for picturesque white weatherboarded buildings, mills and attractive high streets in typical Kentish scenery.
