A Garden Of Possibilities For All
Visit us and discover everything our beautiful and botanically rich heritage Garden has to offer
Explore our Garden
Set within 383 acres of heritage listed Parkland, our paradise for plants in the heart of Sussex captivates and delights visitors with a series of intimate living ‘Garden rooms’. Beyond the formal Garden, visitors can explore our historic Woodland, the South Park with tranquil lakes, and enjoy outstanding views across the Sussex High Weald.
However you want to immerse yourself in nature, there’s no better place to do it than surrounded by the beauty and tranquility of Borde Hill.
The Garden is filled with colour across the open season. From springtime’s magnificent displays of early flowering magnolias, camellias, azaleas and swathes of rhododendrons, to the summer months when the glorious fragrance of hundreds of roses can be enjoyed by all.
Autumn at Borde Hill is particularly special and the entire landscape is transformed by the colours of our mature, award-winning trees and fiery autumnal foliage across the Grade II* listed landscape.
Beyond the formal Garden lies 383 acres of heritage listed Parkland and Woodland set within the beauty of the High Weald. Two lakes in the centre of the South Park – Robertsmere Lake and Harry’s Lake – provide a sense of serenity and calm where you can fully immerse yourself in the stillness of nature.
Explore the beauty of Warren Wood and Stephanie’s Glade. During spring, huge rhododendrons come into full bloom and their white, pink and red flowers overhang the woodland carpet of bluebells, wood anemones and wild garlic.

Dogs are welcome throughout our Garden, Parkland and Woodland
