Summer colour at Woolbeding Gardens

The West Borders in full bloom at Woolbeding Gardens

Explore the garden rooms of this horticultural haven to find these seasonal beauties sophisticatedly planted in colour-themed beds.

Be sure to explore the Herb Garden and see a carpet of Thyme springing to life around our stone sundial, and take a stroll down the stunning West Borders, bursting with colour.

The Vegetable Garden is a marvel of the senses in the summer months, where fragrant lavender and sweet peas blend with an array of vegetables and fruit, growing amongst incredible structure provided by artichokes and Ballerina apples.

A must see is the 150 year old wisteria that climbs the walls of the formal gardens, flowering from May to early June. One of the oldest features of the gardens, the wisteria is something our garden team are quite rightly proud of.

Towards the River Rother, beside the Beam Pump, is the Hornbeam Tunnel that comes to life in the summer months adding a sense of privacy and seclusion beside the babbling of the river. The Tunnel is over 100 years old and is due for exciting restoration in the coming months.

At 26 acres there is plenty to explore at Woolbeding Gardens. Bring along a picnic and enjoy the views of the Woolbeding Parkland, then go on to explore inspiring structural elements such as the Stumpery, the Ruined Abbey and the Neptune Fountain in the Longwalk.

Open on Thursdays and Fridays only, make sure to book online or call 0344 249 1895 to book your visit for a summer getaway.
