First I should mention we are members and have been for many years. Gardens lovely even this time of year. Whilst I appreciate we have the covid situation and also the cafe is being re done I think a bit more effort and imagination could be used to enable visitors to get a drink and maybe a snack and being able to sit down out of the elements. (Obviously following social distance measures). At present there is one tiny horsebox cafe with no seating apart from a few benches that happen to be there and no cover from the rain. Would it not be fairly simple to have a small marquee with a few tables and chairs. I know nymans primary function is the house and gardens but I am sure people enjoy a drink on their visit. There seems to be very little effort to offer paying customers some options. Other businesses have learned to adapt in the current situation. The will to adapt doesn't seem to be there.

These are beautiful gardens with a lovely house (not able to enter the house). The trees are incredible, a range of arborial delights that will be stunning in autumn. There are plenty of precautions for avoiding other people and a lot of areas where you can be alone away from crowds. My only concern is that some of the flower beds are currently in a bad way. I understand that staff have had to be laid-off but some pruning could be achieved with ease particularly in the Rose Garden. I was in 2 minds as whether, or not, to give 5 stars but I think that it is worth it just to view the trees.

As always the gardens and views were lovely especially the long walled borders. However there should be more seating - for partially disabled visitors it is a long way between seats particularly now the one way system is incorporated. Understandably they have had to reduce the refreshment area but there are only a few seats near the horsebox at the side of the house and none at all at the kiosk on exit. This could be re-sited in a better position with seating. Many people had brought seats and picnics but not everyone is capable of carrying them around.

Nymans is a lovely place with pleasant grounds and some lovely gardens with some very unusual plants. However it was a shame that certain pathways were closed, due to covid restrictions, which resulted in quite a few people shuffling along in a line in various parts of the grounds. Despite not being quite as relaxing as one would wish, we spent a very pleasant few hours at Nymans & although not large it is certainly worth a visit.
