Bluebells at Hole Park Gardens
Hole Park Gardens in Rolvenden is renowned for its stunning bluebell wood and due to the unseasonably high temperatures, the bluebells have peaked in early April for the first time in quite a few years.
Hole Park’s bluebell wood is truly remarkable and the bluebells will be at the peak for the next few weeks. The gardens are open every day until the end of May for the annual ‘Spring Spectacular’, between 11am and 6pm. As well as the amazing display of bluebells visitors can admire the beautiful tulips, magnolia, rhododendrons and great swathes of meadow flowers, such as fritillaries, primroses and blue scillas.
New this year is the renovated Ice House which is open for visitors to see and can be accessed via the circular bluebells walk.
The gardens are also open on Wednesday and Thursdays in Summer and Autumn between 1 June and 27 October and for Autumn Sundays on 9, 16, & 23 October and at other times by appointment.
After strolling around the 15-acre gardens, visitors can enjoy light lunches and homemade cakes in the coach house. They can even take home a taste of Hole Park Gardens, by purchasing homemade jam and honey produced from the fruit and bees on the Hole Park estate. Beer from the Old Dairy Brewery will be for sale and visitors can also pick up a bargain from the plant stall.
