Kentchurch Court - garden viewKentchurch Court nestles under Garway Hill in the Monnow Valley and has been the ancestral home to the Scudamore family for almost 1,000 years.

Steeped in history - offering sanctuary to Owain Glendower - the building was modernised during the 18th Century in the Gothic style and contains many treasures including portraits dating back to the 16th Century and carving by Grinling Gibbons.  The Court has been the location for many films, including the television programme 'Country House Rescue'.

Our Summer Visit includes an extensive tour of this historic house, exploring the considerable grounds, comprising of Walled Gardens, Vegetable Garden and Deer Park, established in 1547, which contains around 250 deer and many ancient trees.

Our members will have the option to have lunch at The Court before our afternoon visit, and therefore have more time to enjoy the Gardens, before joining us in the afternoon for the House tour and Garden visit, followed by tea.

Cost:

Morning arrival - Garden entrance £5 (to spend longer in the Grounds), 2 course lunch + coffee £13 

Afternoon arrival - House Tour £10, Tea and Cake £5
