Welcome to Goodnestone

Visitors to Goodnestone are always surprised to discover such a haven of beautiful tranquillity hidden away in south-east Kent. The gardens have many centuries of history behind them and have been created by generations of the FitzWalter family who have lived here since they built the house. The gardens have been brought to their present level of acclaimed quality during the last forty years. They are full of gardening quality at all times of the year, from early spring to late-autumn, but they are just as enjoyable for a peaceful family day out or a walk in the Kent countryside. The gardens also provide the setting for special events, including concerts, plant fairs and wedding receptions. We hope that you will enjoy visiting us.
