  • An amazing place to spend a day. The house was very interesting and the guides were very sensitive. They allowed you to just wander round the house without insisting you hear the entire history of eac...  more »

  • Beautiful house (very knowledgeable volunteer who really entertained the grandchildren and included them in the discussion), grounds, playground and surprisingly quiet for a Saturday (31st August). Went there as a family (10 of us) and had a picnic in the grounds. Well worth a visit. Be aware that Gift Aiding increases the entrance fee - so choose not to.
  • A very special beautiful place. Tons of history and atmosphere. They also host the Sussex Guild of designer makers of contemporary crafts. Stunning world class work. Well worth a visit. Best place to get a unique present for the special person in your life. Or to treat yourself!
  • Fantastic slice of history. Would recommend going. On Saturday there is a group of archers, you can give it a go and at £1 for six arrows it's very affordable. On Sunday, and event days, you can watch award winning blacksmith, Nigel, working in the forge. My 2 kids (8 and 11) were mesmerized watching him make a metal snail (we bought one he'd made earlier and named it Nigel in his honour). A good day out and less crowded than many similar venues.
  • Fantastic place for all the family (children 17 and 14). Enjoyed a great day around the gardens and priory. Steeped in history and the 'pop up' guide was amazing, so friendly and knowledgeable about the area, made it interesting for all of us. Lovely café and shop. Can't recommend it highly enough.
  • A great day out in the Sussex countryside. We had a lovely time here, it's just so picturesque and steeped in history. The gardens are wonderful, and the house itself is magnificent. The moat around the whole place really tops it of. They have a great cafe and lots of things to keep the youngsters occupied. A marvellous day.
