The Garden and the house are a mustsee, the story is remarkable! The Gardens are stonning! Up and running by the National Trust... The coffee and homecooked food is recommended!

We were blown away with sissinghurst gardens. So magical, it's a must see. We went in August and the dahlias were in full bloom and caught the end of the roses. There's a nice national trust cafe with delicious cakes!

Great Dixter is closed on Mondays. Sissinghurst is normally open every day, but next year's opening times won't be published yet. I would phone the National Trust direct.
