About

Sissinghurst Castle Garden

Perhaps not the most glamorous of pasts, Sissinghurst began life as a Saxon pig farm nestled in the picturesque Weald of Kent. After a brief spell as a prison for French sailors, and then a profitable farm estate, Sissinghurst finally met its most prestigious inhabitants in 1930. Vita Sackville-West and Harrold Nicholson were a notorious couple in literary circles of the time, not least because of their liberal lifestyle. They set to work turning the estate into a more suitable abode for an aristocratic pair, and Vita’s passion for horticulture and design lives on in the beautiful gardens still present today.
