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.

Why do I need to pre-book?

We’re still very much a private garden. By pre-booking, we can ensure you'll experience the place as the tranquil oasis it's meant to be. As we’re also without a car park we need to know you'll be travelling on our park-and-ride minibus. You can book your visit in advance or on the same day. Just give us a ring.
