Gardens

In addition to the beautiful gardens in which the Millstream is set, there are many other gardens within a very short distance of the hotel.

Bishop’s Palace Gardens in Chichester (4 miles)

The garden is located in the heart of Chichester in Canon Lane off South Street with good views of the nearby cathedral. The site is bounded on the south by the City Walls (a scheduled monument of national importance).  The north east of the site forms a boundary with the Bishop’s private gardens and includes part of a Tudor wall.  http://www.chichester.gov.uk/index.cfm?articleid=5722

West Dean at West Dean (8 miles)

The 90 acres of grounds are divided into four distinct areas: the gardens entrance; the walled kitchen garden; the pleasure grounds and St Roche’s Arboretum have carried out a bold re-development programme designed to bring the nineteenth century gardens into the twenty-first century.  http://www.westdean.org.uk/Garden/Home.aspx

Stanstead Park near Rowlands Castle (8 miles)

Stansted Park is an Edwardian ‘upstairs-downstairs’  house in 1800 acres of ancient forest. It overlooks the coast from the South Downs, on the borders of Hampshire and Sussex. The  House, chapel, state rooms and the fully furnished servants’ quarters are open from April to September.  http://www.stanstedpark.co.uk/

Denmans at Fontwell (12 miles)

There is something about the garden at Denmans which is quite unlike any other in Britain, for its display is not only to do with flower colour, but foliage form, textures and, of course, as it moves to autumn, with foliage colour as well. Although the garden is only four acres in size, its layout is such that the visitor enjoys many small areas within the overall, for it is punctuated with pieces of statuary, a well designed pot or a warm sitting corner. In fact, it is a garden full of ideas to take home, and which can then be interpreted within smaller garden spaces. http://www.denmans-garden.co.uk/

Uppark House near South Harting  (12 miles)

‘Up Park’ – the site explains the old spelling – is parkland set high on the West Sussex Downs looking south over a broad valley to the Solent and the Isle of Wight. http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/main/w-vh/w-visits/w-findaplace/w-uppark/

Arundel Arboretum (15 miles)

Arundel Arboretum has been established nearly 40 years, and has over that time developed the widest variety and quality stock of trees, large container shrubs, conifers and cedars. Most of their customers now come from recommendation. They believe the reason for this is not just the range and quality of their stock, but also the knowledge and advice they can give you. They not only give advice on which plants will best suit your requirements, but also how best to maintain the plants once they have been planted. Once their expert staff have helped you find the right tree or plant to suit your garden you can plant it yourself or they can arrange delivery and / or planting for you if required. http://www.arundelarboretum.co.uk

Parham at Storrington (21 miles)

Parham’s Gardens consist of seven acres of Pleasure Grounds and a four acre Walled Garden. Visit the Garden Shop for the best quality, home grown perennials.  http://www.parhaminsussex.co.uk/the-gardens.html
