Bidborough Open Gardens

This year there are four gardens in Bidborough for you to visit as a part of Hospice in the Weald Open Gardens scheme. Tickets can be bought on the day from any of the four gardens that are involved, and will allow you access to all the gardens which are participating. Admission is £6 (under 14s go free). There will be homemade teas at Boundes End, with gluten and dairy free cakes available. Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome.


Sheerdrop Open Garden

Location: Sheerdrop, Penshurst Road, Bidborough, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, TN3 0XJ

A terraced garden designed and planted by Roger Platts (Chelsea Gold Medallist). There is a cottage garden mix of plants and shrubs and although it is a ‘young’ garden it is already looking well established. Walk through the moon gate and down to a small pond. There are wonderful views from the garden across the Bidborough countryside towards the village church.


Boundes End Open Garden

Location: Boundes End, 2St Lawrence Avenue, Bidborough, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, TN4 0XB

Boundes End offers both formal and informal areas with herbaceous borders with interesting plants, specimen trees, places to sit and pebbled areas, pergolas, a ‘dry stream’ and a fire circle. Plenty of places to sit and enjoy.

TWIB Willicombe Open Gardens

Darnley Lodge Open Garden

Location: Darnley Lodge, 7 Darnley Drive, Bidborough, Tunbridge Wells Kent TN4 0TH

A formally landscaped front garden with circular lawn, paving and lavender surrounding a large Acer. The rear garden has been redesigned over the years, creating different areas around the garden including two mature rose beds created from roses which were relocated when work was done on the house. There are five compost heaps tucked away in a corner and providing all the organic material for the beds.

4 The Crescent Open Garden

Location: 4 The Crescent, Darnley Drive, Bidborough, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, TN4 0TJ

This is a new garden which 2 years ago had just a few unappealing shrubs down one side. A sense of a cottage garden is being created, which will be peaceful with not too much going on. Plants will grow together as the years progress.
