Chevening House is a grace and favour property usually used by the Foreign Secretary and generally not open to the public.
Once a year, they open the gardens though.
The pleasure grounds of the Earls Stanhope at Chevening House are today characterised by lawns and wooded walks around an ornamental lake. First laid out between 1690 and 1720 in the French formal style, in the 1770s a more informal English design was introduced. In the early C19 lawns, parterres and a maze were established and many specimen trees planted to shade woodland walks.
Features and Attractions
A cascade, modelled on a 1718 predecessor, commemorates 250 years of the Stanhope family's ownership of Chevening and 50 years stewardship by the Board of Trustees.
