Reviews and comments on Great Dixter House and Gardens


I can't possibly be the only person to review one of the most influential gardens in England!

GET ALONG THERE! Massive borders, wild wild meadows, an extraordinary tropical garden, and a truly exuberant spirit, as well as a nursery which it is impossible not to spend money in.

But be warned - not for the tidy-minded, and certainly not for the National Trust-style good taste school. Hopefully Fergus will maintain the legacy of Christopher Lloyd, and if you haven't read his books, you should.

I totally agree Heather, a must-see. A thought-provoking garden, you'll either love it or hate it but look out for all sorts of interesting plants

Yes - fabulous! When we first went, our daughter was only about 5 and she took one look at the house frontage and burst into tears! Having comforted her, we asked what was wrong - it was because she found it so overwhelmingly beautiful. Says it all, really, doesn't it. I do hope that it stays as an open garden - with no Christopher Lloyd I know there are financial problems.
