Tucked away in the stunning setting of the South Downs is one of Sussex’s best kept secrets. This 16th century mansion is a grade 1 listed house offering an exceptional environment for entertaining in a grand style. An exclusive use venue, one of the key elements of this property is its peaceful seclusion. Affording the most spectacular views over the Downs its situation cannot be bettered. Add in the fact that it is around one hour’s drive from London and you have a winning combination.

Corporate groups will relish the extreme privacy and security with excellent meetings facilities, including a superb conference room for 40 Boardroom style plus a variety of additional rooms for relaxing or break-out areas.  The 6000 acres of grounds are ideal for a range of team-building activities and, despite its proximity to the capital, you will feel a million miles from anywhere.

Those looking for a party or wedding venue will love the drama of the interiors, especially the Great Hall with its soaring roof and Minstrel’s Gallery.  If the weather is warm move outside to the pretty gardens and terraces and drink in the views, with the mellow sounds of a jazz band in the background and a glass of something bubbly in your hand.

A variety of bedrooms ensure there’s plenty of accommodation, with a range of styles from main house traditional rooms to more conference styled rooms in the adjoining buildings, all of which are within a few steps of the main house.

This is a lovely property in a spectacular setting, and should be on everyone’s radar.

We like:

  • the peace and seclusion
  • the magnificent views over the Downs
  • the dramatic Gothic Hall
