Pashley Manor is a quintessential English garden located on the Sussex and Kent border in the heart of South East England’s garden country. Pashley offers a sumptuous blend of romantic landscaping, imaginative plantings and fine old trees, fountains, springs and large ponds.

The gardens are open from April to September, see Visitor Information for days and times, and there is also an exciting programme of Special Events for garden and art lovers. Whatever month you choose to visit there is something to delight the senses. From late March wild daffodils and narcissi herald the beginning of the spring flowers. Through April to May the various fruit trees blossom, bluebells carpet the woodland, the magnificent wisteria cascades down the rear of the Manor house and there are thousands of tulips throughout the gardens. As the tulips fade our new plantings of pastel hued azaleas bloom. June is fragrant with roses and lavender while in July the scent of sweet peas and the heady fragrance of lilies begin to perfume the air. The Kitchen Garden provides for the house and café throughout the season and is at its most bountiful in mid-summer. Roses, lilies and a variety of summer bedding plants continue through into August, then in late August and September the hot borders come into their own with dahlias, cannas and asters amongst the many late flowering herbaceous perennials.

Mr and Mrs James Sellick are the owners and inhabitants of Pashley Manor, a Grade I listed timber-framed house, dating from 1550 and enlarged in 1720. They opened their gardens to the public in 1992, having brought them to their present splendour with the assistance of the eminent landscape architect the late Anthony du Gard Pasley and their team of gardeners, and would be delighted to welcome you here in 2014.
