Do you look after someone who couldn't manage without your help? You're probably in need of a break.

Care for the Carers invites carers in East Sussex to enjoy a day out relaxing in the fragrant and beautiful gardens of Great Dixter in Northiam near Rye, East Sussex.

Date: Thursday 12 September 2019

Time: 11am - 4pm

Transport can be provided if needed.

Light refreshments will be available.

Booking is essential as places are limited.

Please note: This event is for carers only, and priority will be given to carers who have not attended an activity before.

How to book



If you are a wheelchair user please let Hannah know when you make the booking. The Garden is mostly wheelchair accessible and Great Dixter can provide an accessibility map.

  • Please note that only the ground floor of the house is accessible for wheelchair users. Wheelchairs can also be booked through Great Dixter - please let Hannah know in advance if you would like to book one.
  • Please be aware that the steps to the second floor of the house are very steep and may be difficult if you have limited mobility.
