We visited Emmetts Gardens on a Saturday afternoon as the weather was fantastic. The garden's are well looked after and the tea room is great. The view's from the gardens are wonderful looking out into the Kent countryside, well worth the visit.

The gardens and fields are very relaxing and unspoilt by commercialism. A little hilly but a golf buggy is there to take the worst of the hills! Do go !
