Upton House and Gardens

Important notice -

Our scheduled conservation work has begun on the driveway. The car park is open as normal, and the buggy will still be running from reception, but there is no access for cars down the main drive. Please call if you have specific access requirements.

In 1927 Lord and Lady Bearsted viewed Upton House with ‘the eye of imagination’ and soon set about creating their made-to-measure country home.
