An exclusive tour with Judith Phillips, owner of Kentwell, and Head Gardener, and find out all about the amazing gardens at Kentwell.  This event is limited to 30 tickets and must be pre-booked.  Please follow current social distancing guidance and regulations while visiting.

Join us at the tearoom for tea and cake, from 4pm.  Judith will then take you on an interesting and informative tour around our gardens.  


The 16th Century House and 15th Century Moat House are not open (due to current restrictions) but are attractive from every angle and still dominate the Gardens.  Their beauty and the usually still waters of the moats, disturbed only by fish and fowl, set the tone.  There is an aura of timelessness created by the mellow red brick, the water and the ancient trees, from our 1000 year old oak to a lawn guarded by England's most majestic cedars.


There's a sense of fun too; from the sculpted tree and courtyard maze to the yew castle and varied topiary, some of it truly massive, encountered throughout.  Topiary here is not a constant dull green but has many hues and as many shapes - the shaping of the trees as striking bare as when in full leaf.


Please pre-book your tour (any time up to 10.30am on the day of your visit) and please arrive in good time to get the most out of your visit.  


Please note that advance booking is essential as we will be strictly limiting numbers on site.  We regret we will not be able to offer tickets to buy at the gate, as we cannot go above our maximum safe numbers.  We ask that you pre-book so we have your full contact details.
