A Tudor house with a famous twentieth century Arts and Crafts garden. Great Dixter was bought in 1910 by Nathaniel Lloyd, author of books on brickwork and topiary, and was restored by Edwin Lutyens. Nathaniel designed the framework of the garden and it was planted with great flair by his son, Christopher Lloyd, author of many good books on plants and planting. Christopher Lloyd was born at Great Dixter and left the estate to The Great Dixter Trust on his death in 2006. The garden reflects the interests of its creators.
