For garden lovers there are many famous gardens within easy reach of Burwash, including:

Pashley Manor is open from April to September - 7 miles by main road, less if you know the local lanes!

Great Dixter is one of the most beautiful gardens in Britain - birthplace and home of the late Christopher Lloyd; Grade 1 listed Tudor house restored by Edward Lutyens

Bedgebury Pinetum is less than a 20 minute drive, and with nearly 10,000 trees and shrubs is home to the most complete collection of temperate conifers in the world

The National Trust manages the world-renowned Sissinghurst Castle Gardens created by Vita Sackville West amd her husband Harold Nicolson, and Scotney Castle one of the most romantic gardens designed around the ruins of a 14th century castle. Both gardens are a 25 minute drive from Burwash.

Bodiam Castle is a similar distance, and is a great destination for families particularly when combined with a trip on the Kent & East Sussex Railway

Battle Abbey and the nearby site of the Battle of Hastings in 1066 is also well worth a visit

Lovers of the arts will appreciate the Modernist icon - the de la Warr pavilion in Bexhill and home for regular arts events and exhibitions throughout the year; it also has a wonderful cafe overlooking the sea!
