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

High Beeches undulates and stretches far and wide and can be an oasis of calm. We visited on a warm, sunny summer's day and barely encountered anyone else. It was as if we were wandering in our own (rather large) garden. We visited just in...More

Grass paths meander through this beautiful landscape. Thank goodness for the plant hunters and collectors of the Victorian era. Set in 27 Acres in the Loder Valley this magical garden is one to visit in all seasons. Enjoy.
