If you have never been to Borde Hill Gardens, this is a must see..... particularly Spring / Summer when you see the best of the flowers. Magnolias were amazing his year and stunning camellias. The cafe too is well worth a visit - inside and outside seating and lovely range of lunches and cakes. A must- do !!

A wonderful walk through a well planned and beautifully maintained garden with a collection of amazing trees. The occasional sculpture shows and other events add to the attraction.

We enjoyed a lovely afternoon at Borde Hill - we hadn't been before and it was a bit of a drive for us, but it was worth it. Lovely, extensive grounds where the children could have a good run around, which made up for me being old & boring and dragging them round the beautiful rose gardens. I do love... More

A lovely sunny Mothers Day morning we decided to visit this generally unvisited garden. Apart from the fully booked Restaurant, and cafe - no coffee today - we almost had the woodlands to ourselves. Some camellia's were in beautiful bloom whilst there seemed to be a wider spread of azalea's & magnolia's; some done, some showing, lots more to come.... More

We did the easter hunt with the kids. Lovely place and staff were lovely. Prices are reasonable but not ideal if you are on a tight budget.
