Wild Gardens: Elevating the Nature of Modern Landscapes with Rick Darke

Friday 9th November 2018

Over a century ago William Robinson employed Gravetye as his living laboratory to envision gardens enlivened by elements of authentic wildness. His experiments with naturalised populations of native and introduced plants resulted in gardens of great beauty enriched by vibrant living diversity. With today's focus on ecological design, Robinson's strategies are proving more relevant than ever before. Utilising global examples from Gravetye to New York City's High Line, Rick Darke will illustrate how Robinson's concept of wild gardening is elevating the nature of modern landscape. 

Gathering at 12.00 noon for the talk, followed by lunch at 2.00pm in our wood panelled dining room. 

£85.00 per person, aperitif, 3 courses, drinks and talk inclusive. 

 

Please call 01342440018 to book your tickets.

60 Years

60th Anniversary Celebration Dinner - SOLD OUT

Sunday 18th November 2018

On the 17th May 1958, the hotelier and restaurateur Peter Herbert opened the manor as a hotel for the very first time. One cannot underestimate the importance Peter played in transforming not just Gravetye, but the very notion of the country house hotel experience we enjoy today. It has always been current owners Jeremy and Elizabeth Hosking's wish to continue this philosophy as well as maintaining and nurturing William Robinson's garden. We invite you to celebrate this milestone with us, in our new dining room, which opened its doors this year almost to the day that Peter Herbert first opened Gravetye 60 years ago. 

Gathering at 7.00pm, followed by dinner at 8.00pm in our new dining room. 

£110.00 per person, aperitif, four courses and wines inclusive. - SOLD OUT

Lounge suits.

Exclusive - Bed & Breakfast rate from £250. Only a limited number available at this price.
