“Six at Sheffield Park”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

One of our favourite NT places. Lovely grounds, beautiful lake and lots of places for the kids (4/8/10/12) to explore. Take a picnic for the area opposite car park when weather is good and explore the footpaths on the ground that side.

Independent tea rooms have been good too.

“Sublime gardens. We'll worth a trip.”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Having rejoined the National Trust after many years (worth doing) we visited these beautiful gardens a few weeks ago. We combined it with a return trip on the Bluebell Railway. What a great day out. Although the weather was average, the 2 hours spent were memorable. Well maintained mature layout, we got the tail end of the rhododendrons, providing a glimpse of how fantastic they must be in full bloom. We saw the waterfall activated and were impressed. Finishing with lunch in the National Trust restaurant, which was pleasant, I can recommend this venue.

“Huge grounds...well worth a visit”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

I've lived around here for almost all my life but have never been here before. Today the weather was lovely so we visited with our baby son in the pushchair and our parents. The grounds are huge and very well maintained. There is a wonderful selection of flora and fauna, and wildlife. It is easy to imagine how it must have looked 100 years ago.

It was easy going with the pushchair. The map is labelled with the more difficult sections, but 90% was accessible with wheels. The main paths are wide and well made, but there are also grass paths which are equally fine in good weather like today.

After we'd walked around the whole place and seen lots of fish and birds, we had a cup of tea in the Coach House Tearoom nearby which was also very nice.

We were so impressed that we've joined the National Trust and look forward to many more visits here.

“Do visit the adjacent nursery,vineyard & winery”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

The gardens and lakes make for an attractive, scenic walk. Mid to late May would seem to be the peak time as the main feature is rhododendrons and azaleas surrounding the lakes and reflecting in the water. By the second week in June this year the azaleas and some rhododendrons were past flowering. There were still plenty in flower to make it worthwhile.

As you drive in there is a sign to take the left fork for a nursery and vineyard. This is not National Trust run but was our highlight of the visit. The owner has an excellent, well-priced and eclectic selection of wines for sale plus beers and ciders. The plants are varied and well-priced and amongst the wines and plants there is a selection of bric-a-brac to peruse.

“Sussex Day Out”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

Used our National Trust membership cards to visit this lovely park and gardens. Had our dog with us, so could not fully explore the gardens and lakes but had some wonderful walks around the grounds and sampled the afternoon tea at the tearooms and had our lunch at the dedicated picnic area. From here, it was only a short walk over the meadows to the 'Bluebell Railway" at Sheffield Park station.
