Great Dixter was the family home of Christopher Lloyd, who devoted his lifetime to creating one of the most experimental, exciting and constantly changing gardens of our time.
Incorporating many medieval buildings, the gardens surround the house, each complementing the other. There is a wide variety of interest from yew topiary, carpets of meadow flowers, the colourful tapestry of mixed borders (including the famous Long Border), natural ponds and exuberant Exotic garden, all contributing to an extraordinarily rich biodiversity.
Visit Great Dixter house with its 15th-century rooms and fine furniture. The medieval Great Barn is open too, alongside a Victorian oast with a history of the garden on display. The White Barn has displays on the house and the Lloyd family and a short film.
Please download our leaflet for more information including a map of the house and gardens.
