The Experience

It feels rural here as you’re surrounded by rolling parkland, but you’re only four miles from Horsham and can drive to two excellent pubs, the Parrot and The Chequers Inn, in less than ten minutes.

James lives across the yard in the main house but you’re completely independent – he’ll leave you the basics to make your own breakfast, including freshly laid eggs from his chickens, and will stock the fridge before you arrive if you ask.

Find books, DVDs and games for rainy days, and space to sit outside the kitchen door if it’s sunny. You can walk or cycle in the surrounding countryside – there’s storage for bikes in the stables next door. Jump on the train to Brighton or drive in 45 minutes; you can reach Wakehurst botanical gardens and Glyndebourne in about the same time.
