Gardenvisit Editorial

A sussex farmhouse with a twentieth century garden. After being aquired by Virginia Woolf's sister in 1916, the house and garden became a meeting place for the Bloomsbury set. Inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement, the garden shows originality in its mosaic paving, sculpture and planting. It is a refreshing change from the National Trust manner of garden care. Sir Peter Shepheard helped with the garden restoration.

    Just beautiful place to visit- regardless of the time of the season. There's always something springing up. Small garden yes, but it was only a farmhouse (and still is!).

    Unless you are a fan of 20th century art (I hated it) forget the house.

    the garden is a small walled cottage style with a large pond.

    Nice cafe, the Robins will pose on your tea pot and nab the cheese out of your Ham & Cheese sandwich! I have the photos as proof!
