Built around a fifteenth century manor house, Nathaniel Lloyd commissioned Sir Edwin Lutyens to enlarge the house in 1909. Lloyd’s son Christopher, gardener and garden writer, designed the garden which is full of originality and challenges traditional ideas of colour and form. It is one of my top ten gardens you must visit in your lifetime. Features include a long border, topiary, an orchard and a wild flower meadow. It is now under the stewardship of Fergus Garrett and the Great Dixter Charitable Trust.
