For those thinking of going to Sissinghurst - I can thoroughly recommend it. I have been 2 or 3 times and the best time to visit will depend a bit on your personal interest. In spring they have fantastic displays of tulips etc but my favourite visit was at the peak of rose season - stunning.
Be warned though it gets very very busy - especially with coach trips. (it is on all the Japanese & American tourist trails and lots of native garden clubs / WI etc organise trips there).
I think it is busier at the weekends and you might be better aiming for either a very early or very late visit.
