Great Dixter
Great Dixter is an historic house in Northiam, East Sussex, the home for many years of the writer and gardener Christopher Lloyd. It is a Grade 1 listed building.

The house was created in 1910–12 by the businessman Nathaniel Lloyd. He engaged the architect Edwin Lutyens to combine an existing house on the site with another house that had been moved from Benenden in Kent. The garden created by Nathaniel and his wife Daisy was made famous by their son Christopher, who lived there until his death in 2006.

Great Dixter and its gardens are now open to the public from April to October.
