Interesting hillside garden with year-round features

Charming Emmetts Garden is an Edwardian estate that was owned by Frederic Lubbock, becoming both a plantsman's passion and a much-loved family home.

The garden was laid out in the late 19th century,  and was influenced by William Robinson. It contains many exotic and rare trees and shrubs from across the world.

Standing on one of the highest spots in Kent, Emmetts Garden offers panormaic views over the unspoilt Weald as well as some great walking opportunities.

When you visit, you can explore the rose and rock gardens, take in the  views and enjoy shows of spring flowers and shrubs, followed by vibrant autumn colours.

Now that Emmetts Garden is open again how about to visit to blow away the cobwebs? Come and see our snowdrops and crocuses and then come back a bit later for our daffodils. Everything is looking so fresh and invigorating right now so it's the perfect way to spend a walk and see some seasonal colour like our early camellias. The countdown has officially started for the bluebells that carpet the woodlands around April.
