For a most stunning setting it is hard to beat Boughton Monchelsea Place which has views over its own deer park and the Weald beyond. The manor house is surrounded by walled gardens with flower filled borders, roses and an orchard. There are also herb and kitchen gardens to explore, with fabulous meandering paths up to the traditional greenhouse. The terrace has fabulous panoramic views. Open Sunday 14 July.

If you fancy visiting a beautiful meadow landscape, buzzing with wildlife, Pheasant Barn is the place to go to in July. Set on the edge of Oare Creek near Faversham, the converted barn offers a stunning backdrop to this award winning garden, and around the house the more formal garden layout relates to the farmland beyond, echoing planting lines and apple orchards. There is also a grass labyrinth to find down close by the water’s edge. Open 3 & 4 July and 7 & 8 July.

There are all styles of gardens to enjoy this July!
