Standing near the site of the Civil War battle of Edgehill, and surrounding the house which was built not long after in 1695, the gardens contain an impressive lawn and series of terraces descending to a large lake. The Bog Garden with many interesting plants and a pair of herbaceous borders complement the Kitchen Garden alongside the terraces.
A visit to the house will reveal its extraordinary collection of Old Masters, including works by Stubbs, Constable, Canaletto and Breughel.
Sir Rushout Cullen created the garden at the end of the 17th century. The banker, Robert Child owned the property and added a lake and temple in 1775. The second Lord Bearsted and his wife further developed it in the 1920s and '30s with the help of his architect, Percy Morley Holder.
