Hole Park Gardens open for Autumn Sundays in October
These glorious Kent gardens will be open for spectacular autumn colour in October on the following Sundays 7, 14, 21 and 28 in addition to Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Visitors to Hole Park Gardens can enjoy the colourful exotic borders together with the autumn colours of the mature Stalwart oak trees and the regal reds and elegant shapes of the Japanese maples.
The gardens, which are set in the beautiful High Weald area, were first planted between the two World Wars by Colonel Barham, the great-grandfather of the present owner. More than 15 acres of gardens surrounded by parkland look out over the picturesque Kentish countryside and woodland.
The easily accessible gardens are a perfect mix of formal and natural planting which seamlessly blend into each other. An elegant Italian water feature greets visitors and the cool blue borders and sculpted yew hedges provide a serene air to the surroundings. The golden gravel paths lead through classical gardens surrounded by hedges and mellow brick walls with immaculately trimmed hedges and colourful herbaceous borders. As you follow the path through the gardens and pass the quaint vineyard, both garden enthusiasts and amateurs will appreciate the care taken in presenting the garden which includes classical sculptures and impressive planting.
The classical paths lead onto the red carpet of autumn leaves as visitors enter the woodland, where the rich palette of autumnal shades can be seen at their best. Follow the trail over pretty wooden bridges, past water pools and the natural bog garden until you reach the newly restored ice house.
Benches are dotted throughout the gardens and woodland, offering visitors the opportunity to sit back, relax and take in the beauty of the countryside.
After a relaxing walk through the park, visitors can enjoy a cup of tea and either a delicious homemade cake or scone in the Tea Room.
The gardens are open until October 31 on Wednesdays and Thursdays between 11am and 6pm and on October 7, 14, 21 and 28 for Autumn Sundays. Admission: £6.00 adult / £1 child.
