Great Dixter, birthplace, home and passion of gardening writer the late Christopher Lloyd was built c1450 and boasts one of the largest surviving timber-framed halls in the country. Of particular note is the antique furniture and needlework collection. Sir Edwin Lutyens was employed to restore the house and gardens in 1910. The gardens are now the hallmark of Christopher Lloyd, with a variety of clipped topiary, wild meadow flowers, mixed borders (including the famous Long Border), ponds and the exuberant Exotic Garden.
