Nymans Gardens

For Father’s Day, I had the choice of what we did for the day, my pick was a National Trust property and as we’d never visited before I picked Nymans Gardens.

It’s taken me a while to write this, things have been rather busy lately. This seems like a busy few weeks with things going on at school and also taking part in my first photography exhibition.

We’re lucky that we live in an area with lots of National Trust places nearby and this one is only 30 minutes down the road.

The real treats of this property are the gardens, there is so much to walk around. Stunning views across the Sussex countryside with lookout points and also a woodland area.

I imagine they hold a lot of weddings and events here as it would make the perfect setting, with walkways leading to the huge green openings.

We needed our map to make sure we didn’t miss parts of the garden, you’ve got a wonderful walled garden which is wonderfully presented with a water fountain in the middle.

This area leads on to the real gem which is the rose garden, it’s filled with many David Austin varieties and we timed it perfectly as they were all in full bloom.

There is also a beautiful house with a small garden around it and next to the house the ruins of a house that was ruined by a fire and never restored. I believe they’re trying to raise funds to try and open up the ruins to the public. You can find out more about Nymans Gardens on the National Trust website.

What is left of the house is perfectly kept rooms giving you a glimpse at life and how it used to look in its former glory.

An enjoyable Father’s Day that ended with a picnic and an ice cream at the end.

We can’t wait to tick a few more National Trust properties off this Summer.

    oh well done on your photography exhibition. It is nice that you spent the day as a family for Father’s Day and National Trust properties are great. I do love flowers (and taking photos of them) and water fountains. What a perfect way to end with an ice cream too.

    What a stunning time of year to visit, the gardens and flowers do indeed look beautiful and I bet you were in photo heaven and I bet the girls loved their cream tea. I hope your exhibition went well and that you managed to make it to the girls end of term events, It is hard to pack everything in at this time of year.

    Thank you for sharing with me on #CountryKids

    Those roses look beautiful and the gardens sound like a great day out. I love the gnarly, twisty trunk in your archway photo. One to pop to if we’re ever down that way. And happy Father’s Day. Hope you got the biggest ice cream!! #CountryKids
