Emmetts Garden Outdoors
Influenced by William Robinson, this delightful plantsman's garden was laid out in the late 19th century, with many exotic and rare trees and shrubs from across the world. There are glorious shows of spring flowers and shrubs, a rose garden and rock garden. Emmetts is equally attractive for its spectacular views at all times and its autumn colours.
This charming and informal garden boasts the highest treetop in Kent and also has many exotic and rare trees and shrubs from across the world. With glorious shows of spring flowers and shrubs, a rose garden and rock garden, Emmetts is equally attractive for its spectacular views year round but particularly for its autumn colours.
Emmetts Garden was farmland until 1860 when the present house was built. (The three-storey Victorian villa and garden immediately surrounding it are not open to visitors.) The name 'Emmetts' comes from the old local word for the giant anthills which filled the woodlands until the 1950s. This may have influenced Frederick Lubbock's decision to purchase the garden as his eldest brother - John, Lord Avebury - was a world expert on ants.
