Silcocks Farm and Willow Barn

Poundsbridge Lane, Fordcombe, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, TN3 0RJ

Silcocks Farm gardens have been lovingly created from farmland over 55 years by the late owner, who received care at Hospice in the Weald. Mature trees frame beautiful long views across the Kent countryside. Deer resistant euphorbias abound amongst other architectural plants. This natural and wildlife-friendly garden can be enjoyed from the summer house overlooking the pond. The vegetable garden has a charming potting shed and beautiful views over farmland.

Refreshments available: Tea, coffee, cold drinks and cakes will be available in Willow Barn and can be taken to enjoy anywhere in the garden.

Little Hickmans 1

Little Hickmans

Coopers Lane, Fordcombe, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, TN3 0RN

A beautiful country garden with well-maintained lawns sweeping down to a large duck pond where Gunnera plants, with their colossal leaves, thrive in the margins. The garden is a tapestry of colours brimming with a diverse array of planting in carefully curated beds and strategically placed pots adding layers of texture and height.

Hickmans Farm

Hickmans Farm, Poundsbridge Lane, Fordcombe, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, TN3 0RL

From the lane, you enter the gravelled farmyard which is interspersed with beautiful grasses and flowerbeds, and looks towards the cottage garden and on to the chickens and ponies in the field. Mature native trees border the large duck pond to one side and an enclosed run of timber farm buildings to the other side.
