Often go round the gardens. Always a warm welcome. Giant flowers. How? Their own compost with mushroom compost ! It would be difficult for disabled people. There are narrow passage ways and no steps down to the pond area. But plenty of other areas to...More

Great Dixter is a combination of three houses - a 1450 medieval great hall, a parlor and large upstairs communal bedroom (complete with a peey window to watch the workers downstairs) and a farmhouse added to the back of the property that marries everything together....More

Decided to visit last Sunday. A chain of jobsworths directed us to a car park far from the house even though spaces were available along the way - we just turned around and visited somewhere else instead.

Visited here at the beginning of October on a lovely sunny day. Yes, there are some steps and uneven paths but these are part of the charm of the gardens. We spent several hours here and one of our party has a few mobility issues...More

Yes, Rye is a little distance away but would be an exceptionally pretty and historic choice. I have not stayed there but the food and ambience at The Bear Hotel are excellent.
