We moved to Clayton over 30 years ago
and have steadily developed the garden ourselves. Our garden is three acres in
size, planted informally on clay at the foot of the South
Downs. There are young and mature trees, shrubberies, roses and
herbaceous plantings and of course, the snowdrops and the hellebores. The garden
is owner maintained and is designed for year round interest. There are plenty of
seats so the views can be enjoyed at leisure.
We are looking forward to meeting
our National Gardens Scheme visitors in
February and March 2017. You can find us on the B2112, 100 metres from the junction with
the A273. We are less than one mile from the A23 and about six miles from
Brighton. The 40, 270, 271, 272 and 273 bus routes link us to Brighton, Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath, East Grinstead and Crawley. (The bus-stop at the Jack and Jill pub is 300 metres from the garden entrance.) The garden lies on the footpath between the new Hassocks main line station and Clayton at a distance of about one mile.
The garden is always cold in
winter and invariably muddy, so winter attire is a must.
Visits by arrangement in groups of 10 to 30. Individuals can be added to groups. Admission, including refreshments, is £9.00 for adults, children free. Dogs on leads free. Parking for groups at house, please car share. Overflow parking at village green BN6 9PJ, then follow signs to back gate.
We would like to thank everybody
who visited the garden in 2016 and came to the talks we gave to gardening clubs and societies. We are pleased to say that we were able to send off £700 to The National Garden Scheme.
