This Stately Mansion was originally a Jacobean house, and has been enlarged over the centuries to create the magnificent stately home we see today. The Mansion has been home to aristocracy for over 300 years. King Edward VII was a regular visitor, and it is little wonder that he kept returning. The house is set in over 10,000 acres of mature parkland against the stunning backdrop of the Sussex Downs, and the vast estate abounds with sporting activities.

The approach to the house is impressive and your guests will not be disappointed on entering this grand and welcoming House. The property has an up to date Regency style, with strong colours and stylish drapes and fabrics. The State rooms are brimming with wonderful antiques and tapestries along with eighteenth-century French and English furniture; the walls are hung with magnificent paintings. This historic house is the ultimate way to entertain on a grand scale, for a highly memorable wedding, celebration or corporate gathering.

The house’s own head chef will cater to your tastes, using wonderful fresh produce from the estate’s very own organic farm. There is a room to suit any function: the remarkable ballroom has hosted many glittering balls over the centuries, the Dining Room is an inspired, opulent experience, and the Drawing Room has the feeling of light and  sunshine bouncing off the brightly coloured wallpaper and furnishings. That is to name but a few of the fabulous function rooms available.

If you are looking for something distinctly grand and opulent then look no further.

We like:

  • the sheer opulence and grandeur
  • a roaring winter fire in the hall
  • the magnificent flower displays
