An ancient estate, once the gift of Kings and mentioned in the Domesday Book, Sheffield Park and Garden lies in the East Sussex countryside near Uckfield.
With acres of landscape garden bordered by historic parkland and woodland, Sheffield Park is the ideal destination for groups interested in horticulture, history or those simply seeking a walk with friends in a magnificent garden followed by a spot of lunch and a slice of cake.
The friendly team make for an enjoyable and easy day out, with options of guided tours tailored to your interest areas, welcome introductions on the coach, a large tearoom, two gift shops, a newly extended plant sales area and ample coach parking. The garden is, of course, the real star of the day and water is its life force. With 20 acres of mirror-like lakes famed for reflecting the beautiful, and often rare, planting Sheffield Park has something to see in all seasons. Spring bursts with colour as the brilliant blooms of rhododendrons dance on the banks and summer brings hundreds of brightly coloured waterlilies. Many of the trees were planted by Arthur Soames for their famous and vivid autumn colours whilst winter allows the structural beauty of the trees to really shine through.
