Retreat to the tranquil gardens at Nymans

Nymans beautiful extensive gardens developed throughout the 20th century by the Messel family, reflect the character of the founder and creativity of the plant hunters who explored worldwide. Indulge the senses with a spring visit to enjoy the blossom and carpets of delicate flowers, then return for the summer borders - a riot of colours and scents. The walled garden contains yellow and blue herbaceous borders, a huge wisteria pergola, a collection of old-fashioned roses, magnolias and camellias. Take a walk through the woodland and wild garden with its fine collection of trees and shrubs.

Nymans also has a Wedding Venue:

The Top Twenty Places to see Snowdrops by Natalie French

"With the promise of spring in the air, Nymans 20th century garden is almost ready to erupt in a kaleidoscope of colour. First comes white, as drifts of snowdrops lie under displays of early magnolias and camellias, under-planted with another pinnacle of spring, the daffodil. The bulb meadow within the walled garden is also full of early narcissus and snowdrops. And by Valentine’s Day, over 150 different types of plant will be flowering."

Fifteen of the Best Spring Gardens by Veronica Peerless

"Nymans’ acid soil means it’s the perfect home for the magnolias for which it is especially known; many hybrids, such as M. x loebneri ‘Leonard Messel’ were bred here. The magnolias aren’t the only attraction, though: there are also cherry and dogwood blossoms, camellias and rhododendrons, and carpets of narcissi and fritillaria. Wisteria scrambles over the ruined house."
