The garden despite being late Autumn was spectacular as ever, the attentive and helpful custodians ,especially those in the house , make the visit even more interesting with their knowledge and enthusiasm!!

We required some of the items that NT stock and as Members we had free entry. No sufficient time to eat of explore the fantastic gardens this time.

I've visited here multiple times and the grounds are stunning. The restaurant however is always a disappointment. The food is meagre, extortionate and almost pitiful. I had the beef gratin which was supposed to come with seasonal vegetables. It should just say an embarrassingly small amount of cabbage. This time of year the seasonal veg could of been a variety of squashes, carrots, parsnip etc. It looked miserable on the plate, and this is not the first time I've been disappointed here. It's fine for a coffee but not much else. Such a shame.

A beautiful place, diverse gardens and massive range of flora to enhance some truly wonderful walks. The buildings are a plus but the main reason to visit is for the beautifully landscaped gardens and abundance of variety and colour. If you can aim to visit in May when the place is most resplendent with all colours of the rainbow, and more.

Beautiful laid out gardens we have frequently visited them as National Trust members avoiding Wakefield Gardens due to excessive car parking charges. The restraunt is well stocked and prices reasonableit is also interesting to visit the house and see the current art exhibitions on the first floor

We had a fabulous day. The young children enjoyed the treasure hunt, trying to find seeds, red flowers, pine cones etc. Great fun. Fortunately it was dry and sunny.
We ate in the cafe and walked through the woods and through the walled garden.
We had a really lovely day.

As a family we like to meet up at National Trust and similar properties, and it always includes lunch/afternoon tea.
We were shown around the gardens by one of the expert volunteers. We’ll try to use that facility more often as it was so informative and enjoyable.
As ever the food and drink were to a high standard.

In our first year as National Trust members we have visited in each of the four seasons and found something to please on every visit, the gardens close to the house are attractive and varied with both plants, mature trees and statuary. There are beautiful views over the valley on a clear day. For the fully mobile the woodland areas are well worth exploring, we even saw a juvenile badger back in early summer. A public footpath runs through the woods so non National Trust members can enjoy the woods too.

The part of the house which was not ruined is open through the summer, with some rooms furnished and there is always a changing exhibition in an upper room.

Nymans has always been very popular whenever we have been, and the car park often full. Served by bus from Crawley/Haywards Heath/Brighton. Well stocked gift shop, café is OK for snacks, less so for hot food as the portions are small and rather bland, there are two pubs in the village which will better provide for the hungry.
