About
In late April/early May Pashley Manor’s spectacular Tulip Festival sees this garden, on the border of Sussex and Kent, carpeted with over 35,000 tulips, creating stunning scenes for visitors to enjoy. Tulips are followed by over 100 varieties of roses through June, hundreds of scented lilies, the kitchen garden showcasing an abundance of produce and a blaze of colour provided by hundreds of dazzling dahlias, during the Dahlia Days event in early September. Complemented by a fantastic café with a beautiful terraced seating area, exhibitions of sculpture and art and a lovely gift shop Pashley is a great destination for a day out.

We visited whilst on holiday in the area. These gardens are amazing! Absolutely captivating in September when we visited. All the rave reviews here are spot on. Contrary to some, we found the cafe service to be very good, maybe we came on a quieter day? Maybe as a 'production process' it could be improved but we enjoyed what we had and the ladies running the cafe were very pleasant indeed. Anyhow, nothing would detract from the beauty and tranquility of this place. Fantastic place to spend an hour or three, not small but not too vast to walk around at a leisurely pace. Fabulous and very highly recommended. We would definitely return when in the area.

Thought the gardens were wonderful, but when we visited yesterday, 8th September it was a very hot day and those who wanted to eat something were having to join a very long queue. No one was allowed to sit at a table until they had ordered their food. Notices felt a bit bossy. Several of those queuing were elderly. Would it not be better to employ more staff to allow people to find a table, sit down and relax and have someone come and take their order ? I overheard other people saying, we can’t do this - let’s go to the coop and get some sandwiches... we too were unwillingly to stand and wait and left to have an excellent lunch with no standing around at a local pub restaurant.

We visited this stunning, beautiful garden late August and have been completely captivated by it in every way. We voted this as the best garden we have ever visited and have now placed it at the very top of our places to visit.

Lovely cafe, offering hot lunches, cakes and beverages and the staff made us feel very welcome.

Nice clean toilets as well.

Thank you for allowing visitors and sharing such a lovely garden with us all.

First time visit. Enjoyed the gardens and grounds. The staff who were working in the garden were approachable and extremely knowledgeable. I was going to drop one point in the rating owing to the restaurant. More tables are required as the queue was long and the tables were in short supply also some of the popular items on the menu were sold out. However the excellent gardens made up for this so 5 stars still awarded.

My first visit to Pashley Manor, with a small group of gardeners from my village. We were entranced. The planting and care of the garden is superb. We could see how much work was being done to maintain this beautiful garden. I especially loved the walled gardens. i'll return for the Spring bulbs.

Finest gardens in Britain?
Impossible to say anything different....these really extensive gardens are breathtaking -----and the cafe/restaurant is also of the highest quality.
This was a memorable experience even for someone who tours around seeking out the finest country house gardens, as I do.

This was a little bit of heaven on earth.

The gardens are quite small, but are lovely and very well kept, with beautiful roses and very serene. It almost felt as though it was our own personal garden! There are lots of statues dotted around, which normally I would not like, but these were largely tasteful (to me!) and were appropriate for the surroundings.

We got in with a 2 for 1 Gardeners World voucher, so it made it a more acceptable price for the two of us.

We did treat ourselves to a scone with clotted cream and jam on the terrace and we decided that they were some of the best scones we've ever had! The lunches looked very tempting too, and I'm sure that they would not disappoint, despite the price!

The staff were lovely too - and couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.

Definitely a very pleasant and memorable afternoon!

We enjoyed a pleasant day at these lovely gardens. Well organised from the Covid safe viewpoint. The grounds and flower beds are well maintained and dotted with interesting sculptures. The catering staff did a great job and food served with proper crockery not plastic. As it was a special Kitchen Garden Week we attended a very interesting talk from Whitney who has reshaped the walled Garden/ vegetable plot. We came away with some good ideas.

Charming selection of different areas. Selection of different sculpture scattered through the garden. Not all to our taste but interesting to see.
