The impressive annual display of nature’s breathtaking bluebells will once again delight visitors at Hole Park Gardens from the remainder of the month and well into May.
Hole Park, which sits quietly in the peaceful Wealden countryside near Tenterden, is a 16-acre garden, with an additional 10 acres of enchanting woodland.
Guests can stroll through the gardens, which are divided immaculately by trimmed yew hedges, by following the estate’s pleasant circular walk.
The walk takes you through the gardens, where you can find sculptures, wisterias and water features, and to the renovated solar powered icehouse, before winding its way back through the wild garlic garden.
Along the way, visitors can take in the dazzling display of bluebells that shower the grounds this spring.
You can also enjoy the colourful array of different plants dotted around the sundial garden and the exotic border, such as magnolias, camellias and rhododendrons.
Indulge in the homegrown treats on offer as you meander through the grounds at the coach house, which serves light lunches and cakes as well as apple juice, local beer and homemade jams and honey produced from the fruit and bees on the Hole Park Estate.
Each year, Hole Park attracts floral enthusiasts from across the county to admire the fabulous flowers throughout April and May.
To ensure guests are not disappointed, the Bluebell Barometer - which can be found on the Hole Park website - shows when to visit to catch the bluebells at their best.
While some areas of the grounds are already a vivid blue, the experts suggest that the flowers will be at their finest from this week onwards.
Hole Park in Rolvenden is open daily from 11am to 6pm. Adult tickets start from £10. Book online here or purchase on the day.
