The ⅕ acre garden is located in the market town of Midhurst nestling in the South Downs National Park. The house and garden were built into the grounds of the former Elmleigh House. There are many attractions, including 120 year old black pines, a large collection of tree lilies, a wildlife pond, frogs, bird boxes, a competition for children and plenty of shady corners to relax and enjoy the garden on a hot summers' day. The garden is always changing with new plantings, designs and colour round every corner.
Plants for sale, and seeds and cuttings are available on request. Please bring a picnic to enjoy in the tranquil garden, plenty of seating and tables, or enjoy home-made cakes and refreshments. Not suitable for large electric buggies.

Why support the National Garden Scheme
The National Garden Scheme gives visitors unique access to over 3,500 exceptional private gardens in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands, and raises impressive amounts of money for some of the UK's best-loved nursing and health charities through admissions, teas and cake.

Thanks to the generosity of garden owners, volunteers and visitors we have donated more than £70 million to our beneficiary charities, and in 2023 made donations of over £3.4 million. Founded in 1927 to support district nurses, we are now the most significant charitable funder of nursing in the UK and our beneficiaries include Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie, Hospice UK and The Queen’s Nursing Institute.
The National Garden Scheme doesn’t just open beautiful gardens for charity – we are passionate about the physical and mental health benefits of gardens too. We fund projects which promote gardens and gardening as therapy, and in 2017, we launched our annual Gardens and Health Week to raise awareness of the topic. Our funding also supports the training of gardeners and offers respite to horticultural workers who have fallen on difficult times.
