1 acre garden created over the last 15 years around an old West Sussex farmhouse (not open), sitting in the midst of its own fields and woods. The formal garden includes a kitchen garden with heated glasshouse, orchard, espaliered wall trained fruit, lawn with ha-ha and cutting garden. A motley assortment of animals including sheep, donkeys, chickens, ducks and geese.
Bluebells flourish in the woods, so feel free to bring dogs and a picnic, and take a walk after visiting the gardens.
Wheelchair access via a ramp to view main part of the garden. Difficult access to woods due to muddy, uneven ground.
Sun 30 Apr (12-5). Admission £5, children free. Home-made teas. Book on the National Garden Scheme website https://ngs.org.uk
or pay on the day.
National Garden Scheme
Founded in 1927 by the Queen’s Nursing Institute to raise funds for community nursing means that gardens, health and community are at the heart of what we do at the National Garden Scheme. Every ticket bought, every garden visited, and every cake and cup of tea savoured translates into millions of pounds in donations not only to some of the UK’s best loved nursing and health charities but to garden charities and community projects too.
In 2022 we made donations of 3.11 million. Beneficiaries include Marie Curie, Macmillan Cancer Support and Parkinson’s UK.
