Kentchurch Court remains a family house and is now owned and run by Jan Lucas-Scudamore and her family, at a later date it will be inherited by her son. Whilst it remains a family estate, Kentchurch Court and the marvellous Gardens are available for visits members of the public during the year and the gardens are also part of the National Garden Scheme.
Originally the site of a medieval settlement, the deer park at Kentchurch has around 250 fallow deer. The Knights Templar originally owned this spot and in the past it was used as a hunting ground by the Royal family. The Scudamore family have owned this piece of land since they bought it from the Knights Hospitallers of Dinmore almost 500 years ago. By prior arrangement it is possible to schedule a visit to the deer park and enjoy an organised walk amongst the many ancient Yew, Sweet Chestnut, Maple and Oak trees.
