Sheffield Park

Sheffield Park East Sussex TN22 3QX

Beautiful Sheffield Park, laid out in the eighteenth century by Capability Brown, is at its busiest in the autumn, when its trees and shrubs erupt into a blaze of fiery reds and golds, giving perfect reflections in the garden's four mirror-like lakes. Equally striking is late-spring, when the banks of vivid azaleas and rhododendrons are in bloom. Sheffield Park is just one of many lovely gardens in this part of Sussex, and for families in particular it’s one of the nicest, relatively compact and with plenty of enticing, overhanging branches making perfect secret hideaways; there’s also a dedicated woodland play area a fifteen-minute walk away across the estate’s parkland. To really pack in a full day, you could always combine a visit here with a steam train journey on the Bluebell Railway; Sheffield Park is just a ten-minute walk away from the railway’s southern terminus.
