The Charleston Manor Gardens

An idyllic garden, influenced by Vita Sackville-West, Gertrude Jekyll and Sir Harold Hillier, nestled on the east side of the Cuckmere Valley, East Sussex and almost surrounded by West Dean Forest.

"The gardens are in fact divided into a series of gardens, each with a different character and separated by walls and gates so that each one leads into another unexpected delight"

 

Country Homes and Gardens - July 1987

 

The surrounding area is now registered as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with many National Trust and English Heritage properties within a stones throw. At the head of the valley lies the Willmington Long Man and at the sea the white cliffs of the Seven Sisters National Park. On the opposite side of the valley is the village of Alfriston famous for it's Monk's House owned by  National Trust
