Hole Park is a gem of a garden tucked away in the Weald of Kent between Cranbrook and Rolvenden. The Hole Park Estate has been in the Barham family for many years and the 15 acre gardens form part of the much larger 200 acre estate. The gardens are beautifully set out with individual gardens and walks; with Woodland and Pine walks through to the Millennium and Walled Gardens, to name a few. There is an amazing selection of flora and colours to see throughout the year.
The bluebell trail is well known locally and the display of bluebells each spring is simply stunning and attracts a myriad of visitors each year. This year I shall look forward to seeing the beds of flowering daffodils which I planted last year in my stint as a volunteer gardener.
After a wander around the gardens, why not take a visit to the tea room for a cup of tea and a slice of homemade cake. Or perhaps you would prefer a bottle of beer from the Old Dairy the local microbrewery at Hole Park.
