Interesting hillside garden with year-round features

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

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

Explore the rose and rock gardens, take in the spectacular views and enjoy glorious shows of spring flowers and shrubs, followed by vibrant autumn colours.
