Nymans Gardens

Outstanding 20th-century garden, set around a romantic house and ruins, in beautiful woodland.

Set in the High Weald with splendid views, the garden is a series of experimental designs with spectacular planting and beauty all year. Both a horticulturalist’s dream and a peaceful country garden, it is easy to lose yourself in its intimate and surprising corners.

The house, transformed into a Gothic mansion in the 1920s, burnt down shortly after, leaving romantic ruins. The remaining rooms are unexpectedly charming, filled with flowers from the garden as Anne Messel, Countess of Rosse had them.

Ancient woods beyond the garden dip into the valley, with walks among avenues, wild flowers, the lake and cascades.
