During the ‘Bluebell Spectacular’ visitors can admire one of nature’s most impressive shows. The Hole Park website will have a bluebell barometer with updates on when the bluebells are at their peak.
Hole Park sits quietly in the Wealden countryside with an extensive 16 acre garden and an additional 10 acres of beautiful woodlands. The gardens are laid out in a series of rooms divided by immaculately trimmed yew hedges. Round every corner there are surprises including sculptures, the standard wisterias which flower in May, the beautifully planted long borders, the sundial garden and the exotic border. Water features including ponds, rills and streams add to the relaxing nature of the gardens.
In addition to the bluebells, Hole Park Gardens offer visitors colour and interest all year round. There is always plenty to enjoy including impressive magnolias, camelias and rhododendrons which lead visitors past the bear family carved out of a fallen tree on the way through to the famous bluebell wood. A circular walk leads through to the renovated solar powered icehouse before winding its way back through the magical silver haze of the wild garlic walk.
Visitors can bring their dogs into the gardens and woodlands but please keep them on a short lead.
Disability access: A circular network of hard paths enables visitors of all ages, including those who require a wheelchair, to enjoy the gardens. Wheelchairs may be reserved free of charge and there are full disability WC facilities.
