Maura and David Wheeler
Set within 500 acres of pasture land and with stunning views to Rye and Winchelsea, this delightful well-tended walled garden provides colour and texture throughout the year. Located in the Brede Valley this working farm has up to 2000 sheep which are ‘supervised’ by loyal and trusty sheepdogs.

Helen and David Slater
A relaxed and informal garden, with naturalistic planting and a prairie inspired design. Grasses, native wild flowers and perennials create colour, texture and year round interest against a background of long views, native hedging and old brick. The garden leads to a small vineyard.

Sally and Anthony Thorne
This large garden has a variety of interesting trees, a big pond with wildlife and a wonderful view down the Brede Valley. It was developed many years ago by the previous owners and over the last few years, the current owners have been restoring it, adding new beds and a waterfall. Like most gardens it is still work in progress!
