Nightingale House
Nightingale House has a recently been redesigned and replanted cottage garden with many perennials and summer annuals. There is a super new greenhouse and a bespoke metal screen with climbing roses and clematis. The garden is still a work in progress, come and see how it is developing!

The garden at Brambletye is a quiet south facing garden on the edge of the South Downs, designed with a prairie effect in mind to attract pollinators and birds. A mix of spring and early summer flowering bulbs, shrubs, herbaceous perennials and roses. There is a small sunken area with raised beds for vegetables and herbs.

Nightingale House Twittenside, Penfold Way, Steyning BN44 3TW is open for the National Garden Scheme on Wednesday 26th June and Wednesday 3rd July (10.30am-5pm). Combined admission with Brambletye 25 Maudlyn Park Way Bramber, Steyning BN44 3PT Admission for both gardens £7, children free. Home-made teas at Nightingale House. Book online on the NGS website or pay on the day. Visit the NGS website for more details.
If you’re passionate about your garden and your friends and family tell you how lovely it is, why not open it to visitors with 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.
