Visit Pashley Manor Gardens, on the border of Sussex and Kent near the spa town of Tunbridge Wells, to see Romantic English landscaping and artistic planting framed by fine old trees, fountains and ponds, with the unusual Tudor/Georgian manor house, which is a private family home not open to the public, creating a memorable backdrop to the beautiful and dynamic gardens.
Delight in the gardeners’ attention to detail in the sweeping herbaceous borders, elegant rose and historic walled gardens, the productive kitchen garden, enchanting woodland paths and tranquil vistas that form this award winning garden.
The café features a menu packed with locally sourced and homemade food, which visitors can enjoy sitting along the terrace gazing out over the rolling lawn and old moat … ‘allow time to sample the fabulous homemade food and warm hospitality at arguably the best garden café in the county, much of which is sourced from the abundant kitchen garden’ (Leigh Clapp in ‘Sussex Life’ Magazine).
The gardens are also enhanced by sculpture on display, waiting for visitors to discover them as they stroll around, and several special events that highlight what’s in the garden through the seasons – over 25,000 tulips, hundreds of varieties of roses and lots of gorgeous, perfumed lilies.
The gardens are open from April to September; whatever month you choose to visit there is something to delight the senses. From late March wild daffodils and narcissi herald the beginning of the spring flowers. Through April to May the various fruit trees blossom, bluebells carpet the woodland, the magnificent wisteria cascades down the rear of the Manor house and there are thousands of tulips throughout the gardens. As the tulips fade the new plantings of pastel hued azaleas bloom. June is fragrant with roses and lavender while in July the scent of sweet peas and the heady fragrance of lilies begin to perfume the air. The Kitchen Garden provides for the house and café throughout the season and is at its most bountiful in mid-summer. Roses, lilies and a variety of summer bedding plants continue through into August, then in late August and September the hot borders come into their own with dahlias, cannas and asters amongst the many late flowering herbaceous perennials.’
Pashley is an ideal destination for groups of garden lovers, art and history enthusiasts, keen photographers or those looking for a peaceful and enjoyable day out surrounded by beauty and nature. ‘Garden, tulips, statues, reception, catering facilities, organisation and welcome were first class’ (Group Organiser after a visit to Pashley).
