A morning departure, we travel to Eastbourne, arriving during the afternoon at the Hydro Hotel for our 4-night stay.


We head inland to the Sussex High Weald to visit one of the country’s truly great gardens, Nymans (NT). The perfect place to relax, stroll in the garden and enjoy some time out. A delight at any time of year with constantly evolving planting designs and a rare and unusual plant collection.


A day at leisure in Eastbourne.


Our first visit this morning is to Bateman’s (NT) – a seventeenth century house with a twentiet century garden made by Rudyard Kipling, who lived here between 1902- 36. The rooms are much as he left them: oriental rugs and artifacts from his Eastern adventures, a book lined study, his Nobel prize certificate for literature, a phonograph playing music and his Rolls Royce still in the garage. Next, we continue to nearby Pashley Manor. Here you will discover a true English country garden set in 1 acres of beautiful borders and vistas situated on the border of Sussex and Kent.


This morning we visit Borde Hill - a nationally important English country garden with magnificent views over a 383-acre Grade II heritage listed parkland. Planted with passion as a series of
outdoor ‘garden rooms’, highlights include the Azalea Ring, the tranquil Italian Garden and a stunning Rose Garden. Later, we head to Lewes, the county town of East Sussex for a short stop and time to explore and perhaps enjoy an afternoon drink before we return to Eastbourne.

After breakfast, we commence our journey homeward.
