Owned by one of the National Gardens Scheme’s County organisers and as such open by appointment through the Scheme, visitors are treated to a garden that is sensitively planted and incorporates distant views of the East Sussex landscape. The garden is approached by a narrow private lane which opens up to a view of the front of the cottage. In summer, there is a small annuals wildflower meadow on the left and a straight, flagstone path to the right with borders of mixed annuals, perennials and grasses either side that are partly designed and partly left to Nature to determine what grows there. An arch leads the visitor to the rear of the house where there are four distinct areas. A lawn with a tumbling water rill planted all around with shrubs and perennials. A small formal hedged area and a more relaxed area again made up of perennials and shrubs. Finally there is a fruit and vegetable garden that provides produce for the owners. The garden is at its peak in high summer when the flowering plants are at their best.
