Goodnestone Park Gardens

Yesterday I visited Goodnestone Park Gardens Nr. Canterbury.

I had not visited since 2000 and what a hidden treasure it is.
Unfortunately over winter they semi lost their infamous wisteria on the back wall of the walled gardens, however this did not detract from the grandeur of entire place.

There is something for everyone here, trees, shading, open fields, parkland, walled gardens, fruit, veg, lawns. Plant nursery, tearooms, events, courses and more. 

With links to Jane Austen, you could imagine the lady herself sitting under a tree writing or one of her characters taking a perambulation of the estate to improve ones health.

With so many photos taken I have used Flickr to host them this time, click here to peruse ones delectation of imagery for ones pleasure

Finally, you must try the tearooms, the shortbread is to die for!
