Emmetts Garden

Click Photo for Slideshow

This charming and informal garden at the highest point in Kent was laid out in the late 19th Century, with many exotic and rare trees and shrubs from across the world. There are glorious shows of daffodils, bluebells and azaleas in spring, roses in summer and the glowing autumnal foliage of acers and cornus in September and October.

The area was transformed by the 1987 storm and dramatic new vistas opened up, which can be enjoyed from the hilltop tea-garden.

Advice for Visitors with Disabilities
Car Parking: Main visitors' car park is level but there is a steep climb to the garden. A volunteer-driven buggy is available to take 5 people, or 3 with a folded wheelchair, to garden entrance.

Wheelchairs: There are three available on loan.
Garden: Partly accessible with some slopes, grass and hard-surface paths. Please beware of some uneven paths and a sheer drop at the end of the shrub garden.

Shop and Tea Room: Both easily accessible from the Garden.
Lavatories: There is an adapted WC.
