The Formal Garden

At the heart of the garden is Borde Hill House, an Elizabethan Tudor mansion built in 1598, which provides a superb backdrop to the formal 17-acre Garden which flows in a series of linked ‘garden rooms’, each boasting its own distinctive character and style.

For over 100 years the Garden has evolved with seasonal colour and interest to complement the original plantings of rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias and magnolias. The Rose Garden and herbaceous borders add a blaze of colour in the summer, while the sub-tropical Dells offer an air of exotic mystery, and sheltered areas within the mature landscape reveal unexpected delights in every corner.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row kswr_row_top_decor_enabled=”false” kswr_row_bottom_decor_enabled=”false” css=”.vc_custom_1520948050991″][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]
