Celebrate your wedding, naming ceremony or renew your vows at King John's nursery and gardens

Hidden down the twisting lanes of the High Weald, King John’s nursery and garden is a unique venue with a very special feel. The licenced nursery barn has a translucent roof filling the interior with natural light and double doors that open onto a spacious paddock with ancient oaks. Beyond is the romantic and naturalistically planted garden with wildflower meadow and ancient orchard. It offers a tranquil space far removed from daily life, where your special day can be tailored to truly be your own.

Perfect for small to medium sized gatherings in a less formal setting, we are licensed for ceremonies in our barn, with the grounds providing the perfect backdrop for your photography.

The romantic eight-acre gardens of King John’s Lodge are as beautiful as they are tranquil, and have captured the hearts of many a garden writer, both in the UK and abroad.

A delightful and deceptively large rustic café serving fresh, home-cooked lunches, cakes and a great selection of fine teas and coffees. With a roaring fire to warm you up on winter days!

The shop offers an eclectic mix of garden tools, ornaments, vintage finds and great ideas for the home. With such a diverse range it’s worth popping in to see what words can’t describe!

The nursery grows a selection of perennial plants with care and expertise. Varieties are chosen because they are the most beautiful, the hardest to find or are the most exciting new introductions.
