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.
Enjoy summer with us
See the pink roses come to life in the rose garden as well as the wild flowers in the meadow. There are some interesting specimens to spot this season like the Chinese lantern tree and for the children there are games to borrow from the cabin like skittles and kites or make the most of our new wild play area next to the Old Stables

A season of outdoor theatre
Emmetts Garden with its panoramic views and open vspaces is the perfect place for outdoor theatre. Quantum Theatre are performing the Tales of Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Button for us in July while the Chamberlain's Men are returning this year with Shakespeare's Twelfth Night in August.
