The Belmont Estate has been owned by successive generations of the Harris family, following its acquisition by General George Harris in 1801.
The focus of Belmont is the elegant 18th century house (designed by Samuel Wyatt) set in beautiful gardens and parkland commanding stunning views over the surrounding Estate and the rolling Kentish North Downs. Steeped in history, this unique house contains mementos of the family's history and travels including one of the finest clock collections in Britain. It is shown to the public by guided tours.
The gardens are also open to the public and feature a large walled Kitchen Garden restored in 2001 to a design by the renowned Lady Arabella Lennox-Boyd. Nearby, the 4th Lord Harris's cricket pitch has been restored and is available for wandering teams and others to use throughout the summer months.
