Borde Hill Gardens are open to the public from 19th February 2022. Country Life magazine describes Borde Hill as: “One of the country’s truly great gardens.” The grounds cover over 200 acres across the gardens, woodland and parkland, with beautiful views over the Sussex Weald.
There are 17 acres of formal gardens, which are designed in a series of outdoor ‘rooms’: You can explore the traditional Rose Garden, the ‘Garden of Allah’, the beautiful Azalea Ring and a peaceful Italian Garden.
There are many lovely colour combinations in the planting. I like the Sidalcea and Campanula together.
Borde Hill has received many awards, including the Historic Houses Association ‘Garden of the Year’.
During the late spring and summer months there is always a lovely display of sculptures, when the garden is transformed into an outdoor gallery.
