What a beautiful place. The gardens were extraordinary. Not only was I delighted by the beautiful spring bulbs but they nestled the architectural gems located here. It was an unexpected treat

I always love wandering through Southover Grange gardens. They are well maintained, tranquil (unless there are a crowd of children) and have some interesting plants. I miss the tulip tree.

Southover is a beautiful heart to Lewes in the bottom of a valley beautifully planted. It is a great place to spend some time. Let the kids run or enjoy the plants.
