Great Dixter Gardens

Great Dixter House & Gardens

Great Dixter is the family home of the late Christopher Lloyd, who had devoted his lifetime to creating one of the most experimental, exciting and constantly changing gardens of our time.

Incorporating many medieval buildings, the gardens at Great Dixter surround the house, each complementing the other. The garden was originally laid out by Lutyens.
There is a wide variety of interest at  from yew topiary, carpets of meadow flowers, dazzling colourful mixed borders (including the famous Long Border), natural ponds, a formal pool, and the wonderful Exotic Garden. Christopher Lloyd and head gardener Fergus Garrett were constantly experimenting at this great garden which no garden enthusiast should miss.

The house has an interesting jistory and dates from the 15th century. The house was bought by Nathaniel Lloyd in 1909 and he already had a similar one in Kent which he moved and rebuilt to combine with the existing house.
Facilities - Shop, disabled access although difficult in places, plant sales, refreshments. 
Editor's favourite - This is one of our Top ten Gardens in the British Isles and not to be missed.
