The Goodnestone Park Gardens in Canterbury has a long history with a selection of old trees such as the ancient cedar of Lebanon that dates from around the time the house was built. A favourite place for Jane Austin to stay, the gardens feature an enormous sweet chestnut as well as oaks, magnolia, tulip trees, and beeches. The gardens include The Walled Garden, The Woodland Garden, Parterre and Terraces, the Arboretum and Gravel Garden as well as the Nursery. Also in the grounds is the OtherSpace Art Gallery. The house, a private stately home, is available to hire only.
