Interesting place (went there for a wedding a while back and revisited recently), but not so interesting that I would recommend a special journey. Plenty of rival interests in the southern Marches (Grosmont etc) which deserve a visit first

We have been a couple of times including one when we stayed in the house itself. Jan and Rosie are wonderful friendly hosts and very passionate about the history of the Court. Gardens are wonderful. The deer were in velvet on this visit. Very stunning. Will visit again

One of the best I've visited, a huge variety of perennials, loved by bees and butterflies. Gardener friendly and helpful. Plants all well cared for, many for sale and are extremely good value for money.

Went on a day trip with a local coach company, so did not have far to travel. We visited Kentchurch in the afternoon and were made very welcome. Our group was split into two, with members of the Scudamore family taking us on our tour. They both had a great sense of humour and a wealth of knowledge. Lovely old... More

We were passing through Kentchurch last Sunday when we saw the signs at the gates of Kentchurch Court saying the gardens were open.We didn't realise that they closed at 5 p.m and felt a bit guilty after we drove up to the car-park and saw the sign..A really nice young woman on a motorbike heading into the house approached us...

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
