There is a nice cafe and a shop. Plenty of car... More

A great day enjoying the plants, setting, views, walks and the cafe. Despite the heat a pleasant breeze made made it perfect. Lots of space to wander, with a good variety of walks (different lengths) and buggy tours for those who are less mobile. The cafe has a lot of seating and a good range of options. Recommend you get... More

Went with the family and had a great time (far better than I expected), the gardens are fantastic and in full bloom at present and the Vivien Leigh exhibition is very informative. Well worth a visit if you are in the area and not too expensive.

I should not be a kill joy, but... The weather was perfect, the setting was wonderful, the gardens were spectacular, and the staff couldn't have been more helpful, but the thing that was missing was the PEACE in which to take in what should have been a breath taking experience. I know I should have known better than to visit... More

Walking through the different gardens towards and around the house is a treat for the eye. I especially loved the wall garden with its mixture of different colors. Not to be missed is the rock garden. The pinetum is also a good place to have your picnic, situated just behind the garden entrance.

Travelled to Nyman's by motorbike and found the parking attendants and the reception staff really helpful. The former allowed me to park in a bike friendly spot, while the lady on reception let me store my bike helmet etc so that I didn't have to carry everything around with me on a very hot day. Went to see the Vivien... More

A partly ruined country house set in gardens. The house is a delightful ruined and set perfectly in the landscape with views across to the South Downs. The gardens are being returned to their original design. There is a tree line walk up to the house with a magnificent redwood. The formal gardens are at their best through June to... More
