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.

we were a very small party who had a delightful visit to Kentchurch. The visit was arranged at the last minute but Mrs Lucas-Scudamore (who had had a very busy few days with a wedding, people staying and 51 visitors to the house the day before) cooked us a very good lunch, followed by a most interesting tour of the...

A very relaxing visit to a large garden/ woodland. And those cakes were so good!! The staff and volunteers are to be congratulated on all their hard work. Will be back at other times of the year.

A thoroughly enjoyable visit to a house that is enmeshed in the history of Herefordshire and the Welsh borders. Shown round the house by the characterful and informative owner. A host of treasures are on display - especially paintings and wood carving, and yet the house remains 'lived in'. The Court is set in a splendid Estate and alot of... More

This was our second visit to Kentchurch Court. On the first, we were given a fascinating and most entertaining tour of the house by the owner, Mrs Jan Lucas-Scudamore. This is a house with a wealth of history and drama, while still being a family home. We were then given a bountiful cream tea. We returned with our gardening club... More

Jan Lucas-Scudamore, the amazing custodian, works so hard to provide groups with the most excellent meal, which she cooks herself. With help of good staff, we dine in style in the superb dining room of the ancient Scuadmore family. What more could we ask. Excellent and marvellous gardens too.
