Wonderful 16th century Grade II listed house in the South Downs National Park with swimming pool and tennis court in 5 acres of garden with fabulous far-reaching views.
This superb family house sets an absolutely gorgeous scene for multi-generational family gatherings in a wonderfully private setting. Located within the South Downs National Park, the house has 5 acres of gardens and paddocks plus a swimming pool, tennis court and croquet lawn. Children will be further delighted by the space to play, the football goals and trampoline. Inside, elegant comfortable interiors are welcoming with 7 bedrooms accommodating up to 18 adults plus 2 toddlers. If needed, the sweet Hideaway Cottage in the garden can sleep up to 2 further adults for an additional cost. Living spaces are generous throughout with drawing room, sitting room, formal dining room, conservatory dining room and large fully equipped kitchen meaning that there is all the space guests could wish for. Outside the mature gardens are a delight and views over the surrounding parkland are a constant reminder of the beauty that encompasses the house. The swimming pool, open between May and September, is gated and safeguarded for children of all ages. The Fox Inn is a few minutes’ walk from the house rather wonderfully serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. There are myriad things to do both at the Old Rectory or in the countryside that surrounds this impeccable house and we are so delighted to be able to offer it to our guests.
