Welcome to Goddards Green Garden, Cranbrook Kent, TN17 3LR

Our garden and orchard extend to about 5 acres, surrounding a beautiful 500 year-old clothier’s hall (the house is not open, but is lovely to look at!). It was originally laid out in 1920s has been redesigned over past 27 years to combine traditional and modern planting schemes, providing variety and interest throughout the year. Notable features include a modern fountain and rill, linking to the original water garden, mixed borders with bulbs, perennials, flowering shrubs and exotics, a birch grove, a late-summer perennial and grass border, a large pond fringed with mature trees, the kitchen garden, a mixed orchard and a recently-planted arboretum. Go to the Garden page to find out more.

We have been holding open days and welcoming groups of vistors for the past eight years, in support of the National Gardens Scheme. We have also participated in Cranbrook in Bloom and opened in aid of Gardening for Disabled Trust.

We are close to many other outstanding gardens, including Sissinghurst (only a 5 minute drive away), Great Dixter, Scotney Castle and Hole Park, so why not combine a visit to one or more of these iconic gardens with a visit to us?
