Nymans is a great place to visit in the Summer. Many walks, wonderful fields of wild flowers and the formal and rose gardens to visit.

they do not allow dogs but you can walk in the woods behind Nymans which is beautiful. Always pristine gardens with lots of beautiful plants and flowers some are rare.

We had a lovely walk in the Wild Garden on the opposite side of the road, it was a lovely sunny day and the tea and cake was great.

Hi just seen the reply to your question. You CANNOT enter Nymans via the shop. I'm afraid you need to pay an entrance fee or join the NT.
