Another gem in the Sevenoaks area. The rock gardens are well maintained with a fair mix of woodlands, rock gardens, orchards, rose gardens and a veggie patch. A nice playarea for younger kids and beautiful views across the Weald of Kent. An excellent day out...More

I`m not quite sure what makes this a Himalayan garden? The nicest part was the Walled Garden, very nice water feature and seating area. As for the rest of the "Himalayan Garden" it was little more than the equivalent of a walk through the local...More

This was a hidden treasure, even during the UK school holidays and coupled with the very warm weather. I was impressed with activities available for children throughout the gardens. Given the heat, there were still areas of colour and lush growth. Make the effort to...More

Hello, The disabled parking is in front of the house and the cafe is to the left hand side of the house, so not far at all. We look forward to welcoming you.
