Stop Press News Item - Kentwell has one of the UK's Best Gardens!

The Guardian Newspaper on Sat 2nd May 2015 listed the UK's best Secret Gardens. Gardens that the visitor may not expect to be as rewarding as they prove to be. The Kentwell Gardens were second in this list. This time of year sees the Kentwell Walled Garden at its best - don't miss it! The ancient espalier fruit trees are just coming into blossom and the Potager and Herb Garden are now approaching their best.

Kentwell - a romantic, moated, mellow red brick Tudor mansion in a tranquil parkland setting.

A 40 year Restoration Project - In 1970 Kentwell stood neglected. No-one was prepared to take it on - except Patrick Phillips. He fell for this wonderful House in its magical setting and was not deterred by its condition. Ever since then he has, with his wife and family, sought to bring Kentwell back to life.

House, Gardens & Farm have an unrivalled ability to captivate the visitor.

You can also visit one of the award-winning Re-Creations of Tudor Everyday Life and Dickensian life. Kentwell pioneered Tudor domestic Living History Events in the UK, and over 30 years later the Re-Creations are as magical as ever.
