In the village of Brenchley, in Kent, Marle Place is a peaceful, privately owned Wealden garden, ten acres of formal planting and many more acres of woodland and orchard. Situated close to Scotney and Sissinghurst Castles.

Many times winner of the Kent Wildlife Gardens Gold Award, including 2013, given by Kent Wildlife Trust.


It is a plantman and artist's garden, featuring a Victorian gazebo, Edwardian rockery and walled fragrant garden. A restored 19th century greenhouse with orchid collection, a mosaic terrace and ornamental ponds. The 17th century house with a massive chimney is of architectural interest, but not open.

"this is a garden in which to linger and enjoy the sights sounds and scents of the season-from the mass of blossom in the spring to the dazzling colours of autumn.  One couple's inspired vision and continued commitment over the past fifty years has seen their garden grow into one of Kent's most popular attractions"
