Kentwell Hall in Long Melford has been owned by the Phillips family since 1971. The house and gardens attract visitors from miles around to explore the surrounding parkland, marvel at the unique Tudor manor, and encounter something unexpected around every corner.

Mackman successfully tendered to support Kentwell with their marketing communications and content to help promote their gardens to the public. With the house being unable to open due to the coronavirus, the gardens offer 30 acres to explore for people seeking outdoor exercise during these unusual circumstances. Kentwell identified that many local people could benefit from the increased promotion of the gardens and the many events held throughout the Spring and beyond.

We are privileged to have the opportunity to work with the team at Kentwell to widen the appeal of their gardens for all ages, and to allow visitors to experience the charm of the property in a Covid safe way.

Stay tuned for updates on what promises to be a varied and exciting project. In the meantime, you can learn more about Kentwell Hall’s gardens on their website. The gardens will reopen in February for half term, where visitors can enjoy the woods carpeted in snowdrops and roam the grounds, where there is something unexpected around every corner. Tickets to see the snowdrops and for the children’s wellie walk and nature trail can be booked online.
