1 Afternoon

Denmans Garden

Denmans is a contemporary country garden that lies on a gentle, south facing slope sheltered by the South Downs to the north. Visitors can stroll through the gardens on the meandering shingle paths, to watch dragonflies flit on the pond, or sit on a secluded bench. The 4 acre garden is a series of spaces that flow one into another elegantly but informally. By design there is nothing grand and stand-offish about Denmans. It provides welcoming and intimate spaces that enfold and enrich you every time you visit. True to John Brookes’ design tenets, every curve is strong and related, creating exquisite inter-linking spaces.
