We regret that the steep drive and steps to enter the garden mean that disabled wheelchair access is not possible.

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 14000 visitors since 2009.
See reviews on TripAdvisor too.

In July 2017 we will have an 8 page feature in the national lifestyle magazine, Coast.

In 2016 we were featured on BBC2 Gardeners' World, were a finalist in the Garden of the Year by Gardeners' World Magazine in the small space category, had an article in the Sunday Telegraph, were featured in Period Homes and Interiors, as well as being listed on The Best In England website and now, in their 2017 guide book.

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!
