Brief description of site
In its original form Holly Mount can be regarded as a good example of an Edwardian country estate. Although its total area is now reduced to a more modest size, it still retains (for example with its pleasure gardens) some elements of its original character. Remaining features include ponds and fencing, although other features, such as the kitchen gardens, rose garden herbaceous borders and pergola are now gone.
Brief history of site
The house was built around 1885 for Richard Hill, Lord of Walshes Manor, Jarvis Brook, East Sussex. At some time between 1898 and 1910 the garden was landscaped by a firm called Blackhouse.
