While yesterday was a day of castles, today was a day of gardens. We started off early from Brighton to Birling Gap. The rocky beach and chalk cliff was pretty cool and I was happy to see the chalk cliffs. The pebbles are amazing - wish I could take some home with me...

We then headed to Sissinghurst Castle Gardens - yet another National Trust property. We spent all of our time here in the Gardens - so much time and effort has gone into these gardens.

The countryside is so pretty, and the narrow roads with hedges are just as I had imagined.

Our overnight accommodation at The Ravenswood was a very nice surprise - we expected accommodation and got another awesome garden. Thankfully we arrived with enough time to wander around the gardens and lakes.
