The Gardens

Set in 12 acres of beautiful grounds with 16 individual gardens to explore, The Gardens in Yalding embodies Kent’s “Garden of England” reputation.

The contemporary barn has been lovingly restored and connected to two interlinked Tipi’s with cascading fairy lights and fire pits that create a serene ambience.

The Gardens offers three stunning inside and outside ceremony options, with plenty of space for exploring, feasting and celebrating.

Plot to Plate

We grow as much produce on site as possible for use in our kitchens. You’ll see our production area, where our talented gardening team produces the seedlings and cuttings needed to populate The Gardens.

Fruit Gardens

There’s lots to explore in our 12 acres of beautiful grounds, including an apple orchard and large fruit garden bursting with pears, cherries, blackberries, raspberries, and more.


We’re proud to host Laddingford Beekeepers within our grounds. Not only do our resident bees make delicious local honey, but they keep our beautiful flowers at The Gardens pollenated.
