Set in the heart of the Kent countryside, Goodnestone is under an hour by train from London (or 90 minutes by car); and under 30 minutes drive from Dover.

Access and public transport

The only vehicular access to the gardens is through the village of Goodnestone – drive past the school, the FitzWalter Arms pub and village church and you will arrive at the car park. For satnav directions please use CT3 1PJ.
