Fenton House has extensive and innovative walled gardens, with formal walks and lawns, a rose garden, kitchen garden and a historic orchard.

The garden lies at the top of Hampstead's Holly Hill and is divided into upper and lower levels. On the upper level, to the south of the house, a broad path runs from an intricate wrought-iron gate alongside mature heritage trees and newly created beds. To the north are perimeter terrace walks around a formal lawn and sunken rose garden.

The planting is relaxed, within a structure of trimmed yew and box hedges, and gives successive colour and interest through the year. Steps beyond the rose garden lead down to the garden’s most charming feature - a sunken, walled area of orchard, glasshouse, culinary herb border, cut-flower beds and vegetables. In spring the lawn below the apple trees is transformed into a flowery meadow.
