High Beeches Garden has an outstanding ‘wild plant’ collection from all over the world, and the best ancient,acid wildflower meadow in the South East. Front Meadow is a registered Site of Nature Conservation Interest (SNCI). A wonderful display of rhododendrons and the National Collection of Stewartia Trees are also on view. Care has been taken in the design of the gardens, to arrange our collections in a way that achieves pure, natural beauty, and creates a unique ambiance.
Steeped in tradition
High Beeches house was destroyed by fire during WW2 when an aeroplane crashed into it, thankfully the beautiful gardens survived and can still be enjoyed today. High Beeches Gardens in Sussex is 27 acres of rhododendrons, rare plants, trees and shrubs. Declared ‘outstanding’ by English Heritage, it is a well preserved example of early 20th century woodland gardens. Loose yourself in the enchantment of the gardens, it's easy to spend a day here and not notice!
Conserving the gardens wonders
The High Beeches Garden Conservation Trust was formed to care for this important garden, along wit its native flora and fauna. Some of the plants in the collection are very rare - even within their native countries. We ensure the great variety of native plants grow on soil free of fertilisers and weedkillers, and carefully monitor the health of our collection.
