The NT do not own every country house with great gardens. This simple but well managed plot offers plenty of scope to sit and contemplate. Lovely borders mid summer. No refreshments. We've been a few times and yet to be organised enough to plan a viewing of the house as it has limited openings. Combine this with a walk up... More

I visited in early September when only the gardens (and not the house) were open. The herbaceous borders were past their best and indeed the owner (who gave me a lovely warm welcome) seemed a little apologetic about them. But it was such a delight being in this beautiful and very quiet spot surrounded by gorgeous scenery, watching the insects... More

We have been to Kentchurch Court 4 times over the last ten years or so - several friends have had celebration meals there and one got married there last week. It is a beautiful country house filled with history in beautiful gardens. Each visit has included a great meal cooked by Jan and her team, formally served and eaten in... More

We have visited Kentchurch Court several times during different seasons and have been delighted by the growing diversity, ever changing colours and constant warm welcome. It has a wonderfully sophisticated garden and grounds with its own rustically understated charm. A haven of tranquillity full of beauty and wildlife. Great tea too

Jan is the most excellent hostess and a mine of information with some very amusing anecdotes. 12 of us had a wonderful time on the house tour the house followed by an excellent lunch served in the magnificent dining room. The garden in early September is an absolute treat and is absolutely buzzing with bees and insects, an inspiration in... More

A wonderful day. We felt like guests not visitors. A lovely visit to the gardens and to be shown around by a very enthusiastic head gardener was a treat. A stop for our prebooked lunch in the dining room. The food, no choices apart from a vegatarian meal preordered, was excellent with homegrown vegetables, beautifully presented. This was followed by... More

We visited the gardens yesterday- early August. A riot of colour in the large walled garden with bees and butterflies delighting in the vast array of beautiful blooms. Really healthy looking vegetables growing in the veg area and a lovely pergola avenue of lavendar. Then a wander around the spacious lawns and woods which surround the ancient court house A... More

Went there for lunch a few years ago. Interesting rooms and gardens. In February the bluebells and daffodils are out which are along the river as you enter.
