Overview
More
A beautiful 20th-century masterpiece featuring colourful borders, a landscape garden and a collection of follies Woolbeding is a modern garden of two halves, with the colour-themed garden rooms surrounding the house, plus a landscape garden. A gentle stroll over the open pasture land provides views of the River Rother and leads to the ruined abbey and on to the Chinese-style bridge and waterfall. Please note that all visits to the gardens must be pre-booked and can be pre-booked online or by telephone.

Definitely worth the visit and the minibus service very efficient and easy. It was a lot bigger than I thought it would be with lots of interesting things to see as well as the plants. Great for photos and a lovely coffee shop too!

You have to book in advance to get a minibus from Midhurst to drive you to these gardens. It's worth the effort for the lovely setting but it is a bit of a pain! You'll get short shrift from the NT staff if you try...More

Not easy to get to because you have to book a place on the (free) NT minibus from Midhurst, but well worth the extra effort. The gardens are not huge but are beautifully planted,.

Something different from the historic houses often associated with the National Trust. OK the travel arrangements do make one apprehensive but parking in Midhurst is inexpensive (we paid just £1 for more than enough time to visit) and the minibus journey of just a few...More

I visited on Friday on a near perfect day. The fact that it takes a bit of effort to get to the gardens I think makes the reward more special. The gardens (plural as there are multiple 'rooms') are a true delight. I spent about...More
