The 30 acres of garden and parkland of Gilbert White's House are set against the backdrop of the magnificent beech clad Selborne hanger, which provides ever-changing seasonal colour.
The garden has a quirky originality of its own and its focus on 18th century planting means that it has much to offer the true plantsman but it can be equally enjoyed for its tranquillity, simple charm and beauty.
Great care has been taken to reintroduce both plants and features described by Gilbert White in his writings. These include the luxuriant borders of the 'Six Quarters', the kitchen garden and the Ha-has. Other highlights include the 'Wine Pipe' seat, designed to afford him 360 degree views of his modest landscape garden.
