The Gardens at Nymans are absolutely stunning, and has to be one of National Trust's Gems! Very extensive with the formal gardens alone covering 33 acres. Although much of the house is now in ruins due to a devastating fire in 1947, you can still...More

Such a beautiful setting and gardens - so much to see and wander around. There are lots of distinct garden areas - rose garden; cottage flower borders; rockery; South African borders; and loads more - something for all seasons. The house itself is partly destroyed...More

Obviously the gardens are excellent and very well kept but there is a complete lack of direction signs once you venture beyond the entrance area. We had great difficulty locating the toilets near the house, in fact 3 of the volunteers didn't know where they...More
