Delight in the sweeping herbaceous borders, elegant rose and historic walled gardens, the productive kitchen garden, enchanting woodland paths and tranquil vistas that form this award winning garden.
There is always something to see in these 11 acres of garden. In late April/early May Pashley Manor’s spectacular Tulip Festival sees this garden, on the border of Sussex and Kent, carpeted with over 30,000 tulips, creating stunning scenes for visitors to enjoy.
Tulips are followed by over 100 varieties of roses through June, the kitchen garden showcasing an abundance of produce and hundreds of scented lilies in July and August. Then the season finishes with a blaze of colour provided by hundreds of dazzling dahlias, during the Dahlia Days event in early September.

A word from the owner
Despite losing over 1000 trees in the 1987 hurricane, with help, enthusiasm and encouragement from the eminent landscape architect and author, the late Anthony du Gard Pasley, an old friend of the Sellicks’, and our loyal team, currently led by Head Gardener Keith Boylett, a garden with great potential was uncovered and has become one of the handsomest landscapes in Sussex.
There is an interesting historical link between Pashley Manor and the Boleyn family. The original house was owned by Sir Geoffrey Boleyn, Lord Mayor of London in 1457 and great-grandfather of Anne Boleyn. His son, Sir William, and then William’s eldest son,
Sir Thomas, who held court at Pashley in 1518, and eventually Sir Thomas’ brother, Sir James Boleyn – uncles to Anne Boleyn, each owned Pashley in turn.
