Gardens Open with House Tour

The Gardens and Farm are open to view from 12noon to 4pm. On these selected weekdays, we open the House for a Guided Tour at 2.30pm for those who purchase House, Gardens and Farm tickets.

Tea and cake will be available from our pop-up Gatehouse Tea Room. Please note, we will not be serving lunches.

Kentwell holds many events throughout the season but many visitors find it a delight to visit when there is nothing extra on. They can then fully enjoy Kentwell's unrivalled romantic air and tranquillity.

Visit our Moat House, the service building of c1500 with Dairy, Bakehouse, Brewhouse, Stillroom and Solar as well as enjoying a tour of the main 16th Century manor house.

Our gardens are a pleasure to walk round at any time. The visitor is never far from water. Everywhere in the gardens the House provides a stunning backdrop just as the gardens provide the perfect setting for the House. For the more adventurous there are walks and trails into adjoining woods.

The farm buildings are of interest at any time. It is a working farm (not a Farm Park) with many of the animals usually to be seen in their natural setting some grazing in the paddocks and some in their housing. To see young animals it is best to come during lambing each year.

We have woodland trails for families to enjoy - take the Storybook Trail to find surprises from well-known tales and travel as far as you imagination can take you! The Heffalump Hunt, starting at the Barns area, runs through the Coppice and the Christmas Tree Wood. See if you can hunt down the elusive Heffalump!
