Rymans - View from pergola
The gardens at Rymans are extensive and beautifully maintained. Normally only to be enjoyed by the family who live here, they are occasionally open to the public on Garden Open Days - and are well worth a visit.
The gardens are broken up into several areas. The largest area to the north of the house has a central pergola with walks radiating in four directions. This is the view southwards from underneath the pergola.
Rymans (Apuldram)
Rymans is a beautiful old house in the village of Apuldram (sometimes spelt Appledram) southwest of Chichester. The house dates from about 1410 and was built by William Ryman whose name is still associated with it. He was a prominent merchant and lawyer who became a Knight of the Shire (of Sussex) in 1420 and Sheriff of Sussex in 1434.
The Ryman family continued to own and live here until 1654 when it was sold to Thomas Smith of Binderton. The Smiths lived here until 1730 when it passed by marriage to the Bartellot family who owned it until 1913. The C20th saw the house change hands several times, and fortunately it was sensitively restored by the owners, in particular the current owner who has worked closely with English Heritage.
The house is set in magnificent and extensive gardens which are occasionally open to the public for Charity as part of the National Gardens Scheme LinkExternal link - and are well worth a visit when they are. The photos taken around the garden here were taken on such an open day.
Note that the house is a private residence and is not open to the public, and the gardens only on the aforementioned occasions. Not surprisingly, the house is EH Grade I listed (see listing here LinkExternal link )
Pevsner in "The Buildings of England - Sussex" was much taken by this old house and in particular the way that the windows let differing amounts of light into different parts of the house to suit their purpose.
