The garden is truly a delight .. whatever the time of year. In the warmer months you will be able to sit outside and relax … perhaps with a glass of wine?

Listen to the mill stream!

Take a seat on one of the benches and you will hear the bubbling mill stream, which runs just behind the back garden.

The Sunny Front Garden

rosebud cottage front garden steyningSit out in front of the cottage and you could meet some of the neighbours. Local people are friendly and ready to say ‘hello’.

Colour throughout the year!

Whenever you visit you can enjoy plants in flower, with some unusual varieties.  Scented plants will greet you .. even in the winter months.

From spring onwards you should be able to watch the bees and butterflies – especially in sunny weather!
