A main attraction of Upton House is the garden. A lawn, with huge cedar trees, sweeps gently down from the house and below is an extensive terraced garden. The garden features a kitchen garden, a series of herbaceous borders and a large lake with water lilies in a small valley. The terracing, unseen from the house contains the National Collection of Asters. In use since the 12th.century, the gardens were largely transformed by Kitty Lloyd-Jones for Lady Bearsted in the 1920’s and 1930’s, including the creation of a rare Bog Garden on the site of medieval fish ponds.
