Gourmet Garden Trails

In one of the sunniest spots in the UK our West Sussex gardens flourish throughout the year. From frosty, structural beauty through abundant and glorious flowers to the gilded mists of autumn there is always something to discover and admire here. And if all that horticulture makes you thirsty, sample a glass of award-winning Sussex wine, enjoy a flagon of golden ale or relish some of our delicious local produce at one of our many ancient inns, enticing farm shops and charming restaurants.
