We regret that the steep drive and steps to enter the garden mean that disabled wheelchair access is not possible. Other disability access may be possible, so please call to check.

I am available to give talks to horticultural societies or garden groups, either one entitled
"From City Courtyard to Seaside Sanctuary" or
"Gardening by the Sea", if interested as well.

We've seen over 17000 visitors since 2009.
See the many 5* reviews on TripAdvisor too.
In 2017 we were awarded a "Certificate Of Excellence" for consistenly excellent reviews!

Last summer we had an 8 page feature in the national lifestyle magazine, Coast .

The garden has featured on BBC2 Gardeners' World, been a finalist in the Garden of the Year by Gardeners' World Magazine in the small space category, is listed on The Best In England website and now, in their 2018 guide book too. Last year if was accorded the honour of being the smallest garden listed on the Great British Gardens website too.

In 2014 we were featured on ITV's Good Morning Britain and listed as one of 25 glorious Sussex gardens to visit in Sussex Life Magazine.

The garden is located right on the 12 & 12a bus routes from Brighton or Eastbourne, so you can leave the car at home and come by bus!
