Lovely peaceful garden, just the birds singing and the odd pheasant call. More wild flowers than most but all well displayed and sign posted. 2 for 1 gardeners world ticket accepted. Nice cream tea for £5 under a parasol in tea rooms.

High Beeches, along with Nymans, Leonardslee, Borde Hill and Sheffield Park is one of the great Sussex gardens, created at a time when wealthy home owners valued their surrounding environment and indulged in some healthy competition over their gardens and the exotic species they could...More
