My Mum has been visiting Sissinghurst for as long as I can remember and whenever we can we like to join her there. Within a 20 minute drive of my parents, this is a beautiful location for all members of the family. Dog and child friendly as well as being very accommodating for anyone disabled. We often come here for... More

We visited in Feb when the garden was closed off but that didn't spoil our day. We had a lovely 3 mile walk round the estate, muddy but was expecting it. We stopped off at the bird hide and spotted a buzzard. The view from the top of the tower is breathtaking, we was very lucky to have a sunny... More

Love coming to the castle grounds and gardens. Never tire of them. Garden for all seasons. Lake and parkland for walking the dog. Tea rooms for lunch or tea. A good NT property.

We had time to kill and checking the local attractions via google there wasn't much in the area except a 22 acre field or the local church. Then we saw signs for Sissinghurst Castle. We'd heard of the place, but had no idea we were near or what it was like. Castle always conjures up turrets and moats and though... More

During the winter months it is now possible toi view the South Cottage though not yet the garden which is closed for the winter. It is worth seeing as it still retains some feel of the past regarding Vita and Harold, there is the opportunity to see their lounge ,Harolds bookroom their and bedrooms. Some of the guides information was... More

We went to here as it is pretty near to us and we had never been before. There was plenty of parking as you would expect on a crisp winters day. Although the gardens were closed we visited the exhibition and the tower and had a lovely walk around the ponds. The one criticism we would have was that the... More

Superb few hours we spent with friends here. We had the privilege of seeing Rose Cottage home of Harold and Vita, open for the first time to the public. It is still used by the family. There was an international photographic exhibition on display, which was wonderful. Coffee and cheese scones were enjoyed in the cafe. We then had a... More

Keeping in mind that the garden is closed in the winter months, Sissinghurst is still worth a visit any time of the year. In fact, it was very quiet on the crisp, sunny January day we visited. National Trust fees apply if you're not a member. The restaurant has really nice views where you can relax before you talk a... More

The need for a good walk and a cuppa on a stunning winter weekday took us to Sissinghurst , which is quite local for us and we're National Trust members. It was lovely to visit the place out of the main season, so avoiding the coach parties and crowds; a tranquil place to be. The estate is open all year... More
