The Grade I listed garden is a horticultural work of art formed through centuries of landscape design, with influences of 'Capability' Brown and Humphry Repton. Four lakes form the heart of the garden, with paths circulating through the glades and wooded areas surrounding them. Each owner has left their impression, which can still be seen today in the layout of the lakes, the construction of Pulham Falls, the planting of Palm Walk and the many different tree and shrub species from around the world.

Our historic parkland forms a larger footprint for the Sheffield Park estate. Dating back several centuries, it has had many uses including a deer park and WWII camp, and is now grazed with livestock and home to our natural woodland play trail in Ringwood Toll. The River Ouse runs across the bottom of the parkland and the original meanders are still visible winding across the meadow. This area has been transformed into a wildlife haven and is home to a diverse range of species including kingfishers, birds of prey, butterflies, and dragonflies.

We welcome all visitors to this beautiful grade I listed Garden. If you have particular needs, please let us know so that we can do all we can to make your visit memorable. Our staff and volunteers are always willing to help. Some of the accessible features include: 

Blue Badge parking.

Accessible toilets.

Loose gravel paths.

Accessible pathways suitable for wheelchairs and site mobility scooter (bookable by phone).

Dogs welcome on short leads (except Saturday mornings).

Assistance dogs are welcome across the whole site at all times.

Map & Directions

Road Directions

We are located midway between East Grinstead and Lewes, 5 miles north-west of Uckfield, on the east side of A275 (between A272 and A22). If approaching north-bound from Lewes, we are just past the Bluebell Railway, over the River Ouse bridge on the right. Coming south-bound from the A22 Wych Cross, follow the brown signs for Sheffield Park and the Bluebell Railway.

Parking: Parking is free and we have accessible parking. Our car park can be busy and must be pre-booked in autumn. We may become full during the peak seasons in May and October and occasionally we have to close the car park. We ask that you avoid parking on the A275 as it dangerous for all road users. We have speed bumps on our driveway which may not be suitable for low clearance vehicles. Large vehicles - including minibuses, motorhomes and coaches - please ring ahead to book on 01825790231.
