Lime Cross Nursery, East Sussex
A family run garden centre and plant nursery. The estate is comprised of 30 acres of lakes, woodland, gardens and a conifer pinetum. There are a variety of outbuildings such as greenhouses, stables and workshops, as well as a round house within the woodland area. The plants are fed by a 80m x 50m reservoir which has extremely clear blue water, and a long blue jetty with boats tied to the end. The reservoir is stunning especially at sun rise when a layer of steam covers the surface. The water temperature remains fairly high during the summer months, making it excellent for swimming in. Our family of alpacas live in the field adjacent to the reservoir. There is an on-site cafe at the garden centre which serves outstanding breakfast, lunch, afternoon teas and coffees. Located in East Sussex.
