COVID UPDATE. Following the easing of the 8 weeks of lockdown Hole Park Gardens are now fully open for the 2020 season. Please come and enjoy the glorious spring colour of wild flowers, meadows, Camassias, Rhododendron and Azalea. No pre-booking necessary. Regretfully we will not immediately reopen the Coach House Café until visitor numbers make that worthwhile, but we expect to do so very soon for a takeout service, so you can enjoy your refreshments in the glory of the gardens.

The beautiful award-winning Hole Park Gardens in Rolvenden, Kent will be open to visitors every day from Saturday 28 March 2020. Every year the gardens attract visitors for the annual Bluebell Spectacular event which takes place from late April to early May. Hole Park’s website will have a bluebell barometer which informs visitors when the bluebells are at their peak.
Immaculately trimmed yew hedges, many with geometric topiary shapes, surround much of the 16-acre formal gardens. An additional 10 acres form the Bluebell Wood which is often described by visitors and garden writers as one of the best places in Britain to see bluebells. Everyone can enjoy this natural wonder by taking the delightful circular walk through the bluebells, over the pretty streams to a renovated solar powered ice house. From here the path meanders through the magical silver and white haze of the Wild Garlic Walk before finishing back at the gardens. From here visitors can admire the impressive mature rhododendrons and azaleas which are also in flower at this time of year.
This year, owners can bring their dogs into the gardens and woodlands for the first time. Dogs must however be kept on a short lead.
