Mere House, in the village of Mereworth in Kent, is an imposing Grade II listed Georgian house set within 20 acres of historic garden and parkland.

The garden at Mere House is notable for its extensive snowdrop display in early spring, followed by a breathtaking show of daffodils, and its vibrant autumn colour. The garden is delightful at all times of the year.

The garden is open for charity on various dates throughout the year and for group visits by appointment at any time of the year. The sumptuous homemade teas by Tessa Wells are as exceptional as the garden itself!

George Plumptre, Director of the National Gardens Scheme and well-known garden writer, wrote a delightful and informative article on the garden at Mere House in Country Life magazine of 8 March 2017, ‘A green-fingered inheritance’, pp 52-56. It was beautifully illustrated with photographs by Marianne Majerus.

Mere House is available by appointment to group visits and for small-scale conferences, and provides the perfect intimate location for business meetings. Light refreshments, lunch and dinner can be provided.  Other events can be arranged on a larger scale outside, where a marquee is available.

Andrew Wells, Historic Property Management Consultant, based at Mere House, provides historical research and advice on the maintenance and use of country houses and other historic buildings.

Mere House is only one hour by train or car from central London, and within ten minutes of the M20/M26 interchange.  Mereworth is in the heart of the fruit growing district of Kent.  Its Grade I parish church has one of the most remarkable neo-classical interiors in Europe, and a tower and spire reminiscent of James Gibbs’s St Martin-in-the-Fields in London.
