Here's a little known National Trust garden. An acquaintance of ours who happens to be a professional gardener here in Sussex recently visited Woolbeding near to Midhurst West Sussex, as part of an organised trip for professional gardeners. She could not speak more highly about it and said it is a real gem.
Woolbeding is a 20th - century garden of two halves, with the colour themed garden rooms surrounding the house plus a woodland garden. A short walk over open pasture land provides views to the River Rother and leads to the fantasy garden which includes a Chinese - style bridge, waterfall and stumpery. As a professional she was rightly impressed and a three hour visit could have lasted much longer.
Whether you are a garden enthusiast, or just enjoy beautiful settings, Woolbeding Gardens could be worth a visit. The gardens are open Thursdays and Fridays to 30 September 2011. Access is restricted and is by minibus so you do need to book.
