The Garden Landscape Guide

Pashley Manor Gardens

Pashley Manor is a house with Tudor front (1550), Queen Anne rear (1720) and 11 acres of award winning gardens. There is evidence of gardening at Pashley from the 16th Century and the park has 500-year old oak trees. Pashley Manor Gardens have been replanted by Mr and Mrs James Sellick, with the advice of Antony du Gard Pasley, since 1981. The abundant Kitchen Garden supplies fresh herbs, salads and vegetables to the Garden Room Cafe. Other features include a mid-Victorian greenhouse, Rose Walk, terrace, fountain, ponds, herbaceous borders and woodland that is open when it is carpeted in bluebells. The garden offers colour and interest throughout the year and magnificent views from the terrace to Brightling Beacon and across the Sussex countryside. There is also a programme of special events, including the popular Tulip Festival in late April/early May, and a season long exhibition of sculpture and botanical art.

    Nous avons tellement apprécié notre visite de votre expo TULIP ce printemps 2012 que nous projetons d'y retourner en 2013. Les dates de cette manifestation sont-elles déjà fixées pour 2013?

    Went in mid-September and it was stunning - like it was in it's prime, not end-of-season 'okay'.

    Café was lovely, relaxing looking over the pond.

    Fabulous gardens - I went several times this year. Tulip Festival was magnificent - they carpeted the whole garden. Sculpture is lovely to see too and the herbaceous borders looked great in September. Delicious lunch and cakes in the cafe.

    Pashley Manor Gardens is a delightful surprise. The graceful and charming gardens show the love and dedication to the property by its very welcoming owners, Mr. and Mrs. James Sellick, who have undertaken an extensive program of restoration and expansion. The lovely manor house was once a Tudor hunting lodge owned by Anne Boleyn's family. I visited in mid-June, when the abundant roses were at their peak. Interesting and sometimes quirky bronze sculptures (all for sale) are integrated throughout the grounds. Winner of the HHA/Christie's Garden of the Year Award. Excellent cafe offering locally sourced food. Gift shop features original botanical works by local artists.

    Although just missing the Tulips which must have looked lovely, the Gardens have a very pleasant and relaxed atmosphere with an interesting range of different styles.The recent investment in planting shows excellent taste [in my opinion].

    Great to see a planting design by Tony Pasley. He has a genuine talent.
