Belmont House and Gardens

The beautiful Georgian house of Belmont, set in its own parkland, amid stunning views of the rolling Kent countryside, is a completely unspoilt and distinctive example of the work of the architect Samuel Wyatt.

The Walled Garden to the rear of the stable yard is an intimate enclosed garden with long borders containing an abundance of annuals and perennials. It gives a beautiful splash of colour from Spring through to Autumn, the stunning wisteria that covers the entire end wall is particularly beautiful.

On one side of the walls is the Pinetum with grotto and to the other the lawns leading to the Ha-Ha.

The Trustees invited Arabella Lennox-Boyd to create a new Kitchen Garden for their Millenium Project. The resulting design is a part-productive, part ornamental theme and the garden is filled with trained fruit, vegetables, flowering trees, lawns and a beautiful ornamental pond. Remaining true to the design, it was the Belmont Garden staff who, in under 18 months, turned her brief into reality – introducing new gravel paths, box hedges, metal fruit arches, an ornamental pond, twelve hop arbours and a semi-circular pleached hedge of pyrus chanticleer. Plants and seasonal produce can be found on sale near the greenhouse entrance.

To the rear of this garden are beehives and a beautiful Mandala, planted with box hedges and lavender, a floral nod to the Harris family connections with India.

Plants and seasonal produce can be found on sale near the greenhouse entrance.

Gardens open daily from 10am until 6pm (dusk if earlier)
