Explore the quintessential English garden of Pashley Manor

Wadhurst, East Sussex

Pashley Manor is the very essence of an English garden, and is set in a well-wooded park with superb views over the surrounding countryside.

The estate can be traced back to 1262, when the de Passele family built a moated Manor and held the estate until 1453, when it was sold to the forebears of Anne Boleyn.

The acres of gardens offer a sumptuous blend of romantic landscaping, imaginative plantings and fine old trees, fountains, springs and large ponds.

There are woodland areas where the bluebells provides a colourful spring carpet, and wisteria cascades near the house. Tulips are profusely evident in spring, when Pashley Manor holds their 'Tulip Festival' with over 14,000 bulbs and more than 65 different varieties, giving way to azaleas, lavender, and lilies later in the year.
