An attractively laid out, privately owned 15-acre garden, Hole Park is often referred to as a hidden gem, and it has been owned by the Barham family for the past 4 generations and is set in over 200 acres of classic parkland. The colourful gardens enjoy far-reaching views over the hills, woods, and fields of the picturesque Kentish Weald. They are a skilful mix of formal design and more naturalised planting, giving colour throughout the seasons. They also run several events throughout the year.
