Leonardslee Gardens

Spectacular woodland gardens and lakes set in 240 acres of West Sussex.

Explore the glorious scenery at any time of year but especially in the spring when the rhododendrons, camellias and azaleas are in flower and again in the autumn when the trees are turning their vibrant colours.

Keeping below the house, take either the Lower Walk, the Middle Walk or the Top Walk to the Dell.

Take any of the numerous paths down to the lakes and cross over the Clapper Bridge with the stepping stones to your right.

On the far side of the lakes, discover the maples and the newly created New Pond Walk which twists its way through the Old Park with its herd of deer.

Don’t miss the Rock Garden. James Pulham & Sons designed the area for Sir Edmund’s collection of ferns, azaleas, rhododendrons and alpine plants.

Look out for the wallabys in their enclosure and the newly planted vineyard.

You can stay in the house and/or eat in the Michelin Star restaurant.
