My wife and I visited this garden for the first time at the very end of September following an overnight stay nearby. We had high hopes but they were easily exceeded. From the warmth of the welcome (knowledgeable and friendly 'on the door') to the truly magical environment, the various different areas of the gardens, the creativity and imagination that had clearly gone into the creation of the gardens and their maintenance and the charm of every staff member that we met, our visit could not have gone better. Sure, the warm and sunny weather helped, bringing out the last few butterflies and bees of the season but the colours, scents and shapes that we saw, blew us away. Would highly recommend the Jay Robin's Rose Garden, the Italian Garden and the Long Dell to name but three! We also got lucky by seeing the last day of the sculpture exhibition in the garden which just added to the charm and interest. 10 out of 10 - don't miss it.

It was some years since we last visited these gardens and we booked ahead, as is necessary now. On a warm and sunny day we were pleasantly greeted and given a map. These are delightful gardens and we enjoyed walking around the various areas, plenty still in flower and benches here and there to rest. There is a one way system, but at times the route was a little confusing, luckily it wasn't too busy. The rose garden is an area not to be missed, and even in September there were quite a lot of roses in flower; we have previously visited in June/July and certainly this would be the time when the roses are at their best. There is a small hut selling take away drinks and light lunches, not a wide selection and quite a queue, but pleasantly done and fresh sandwiches willingly prepared, picnic tables dotted around. There is Jeremy's restaurant and a café just outside the entrance, which seem to be part of the set up, so might be a better option, especially in cool weather. A small gift shop which we didn't visit.

A very beautiful garden with a nice play area for the children. It was raining when we visited, but don’t let that put you off. Plenty of parking. Lovely scenic views too. Visited as part of an annual pass with Sussex Prairie Gardens.
