Great Dixter

    The glorious Arts and Crafts garden of Great Dixter in East Sussex

    Vicky Sartain

    Built circa 1450 and one of the largest surviving timber-framed halls in the country. Restored and extended in 1910 by Sir Edwin Lutyens. A hall house dating from around 1500 was also added. Having been originally located at nearby Benendon, it was dismantled piece by piece and re-erected at Great Dixter. Contents include a fine selection of 17th and 18th century furniture.

    In more recent years Great Dixter was the family home of gardening writer Christopher Lloyd, who devoted his lifetime to creating one of the most experimental, exciting and constantly changing gardens of our time, including meadows, topiary, ponds and the famous Long Border and Exotic Garden.
