This garden is like no other. It has all year round interest, not just in the bluebell season, so we try and visit each month and walk right round and take in the views whilst spotting our favourite plants. Tea and scones too!

We visited Emmetts Gardens on a Saturday afternoon as the weather was fantastic. The garden's are well looked after and the tea room is great. The view's from the gardens are wonderful looking out into the Kent countryside, well worth the visit.

Mid-October and a fantastic temperature (23-25C) saw us in Emmetts Garden. It's not a huge garden but an interesting one. There are many varieties of plans (from roses to trees). We expected to see colours (which we saw) but were particularly surprised and impressed by...More
