Godinton House, near Ashford
The lovely Godinton House has twelve acres of tranquil gardens.
Surrounded by mature parkland sits a mellow red brick Jacobean house with twelve acres of tranquil gardens. The garden at Godinton House has terraced lawns, topiary and a large lily pond make a formal area softened by herbaceous borders, mature magnolias and willows with roses and clematis tumbling down the steps.
A newly designed rose garden is a voluptuous mix of shrub roses and herbaceous planting and the Italian garden with its statuary, Mediterranean planting and gentle fountain make a perfect place to sit on a warm day.
The large walled garden is home to a spectacular collection of delphiniums, fruit trees have been planted on the walls and there are beds of cutting flowers and vegetables laid out in front of a new Victorian style greenhouse.
