Overview

We travel to Rye this morning where there will be time to find lunch and have a look around this charming town. In the afternoon we travel to Great Dixter. The original house at Dixter, which dates from the mid 15th century, was acquired by a businessman named Nathaniel Lloyd in 1909. It is a romantic recreation of a medieval manor house, complete with great hall, parlour, solar and yeoman’s hall. Nathaniel Lloyd and Lutyens began the garden at Great Dixter, but it was Nathaniel’s son Christopher Lloyd, a well known garden writer and television personality, who made it famous. The garden is in the arts and crafts style, and features topiary, a long border, an orchard and a wild flower meadow.
