Nymans Gardens

A view of Nymans Gardens and the charming house and gallery


A garden for all seasons with rare and unusual plant collections set around a romantic house and partial ruins.

In spring see blossom, bulbs and a stunning collection of subtly fragranced magnolias. Dramatic shows of vibrant native tree colour in autumn precede winter’s structural form, with pockets of perfumed daphne throughout the garden.

Discover hidden corners through stone archways and walk along tree-lined avenues. The adjoining woodland, with lake and bird hides, has plenty of opportunities to spot wildlife.

The comfortable, yet elegant, house reflects the personalities and stories of the talented Messel family.
