A stately mansion nestled in the South Downs
Step inside the imposing 17th-century mansion and discover a treasure house filled with an internationally important art and sculpture collection.
Over the winter the state rooms are closed to visitors, rested, thoroughly cleaned and vital conservation work is undertaken without natural light or comfort heating. This is for the benefit of our collections and interiors, ensuring they can continue to be enjoyed for generations to come.
In contrast to the stately grandeur, visit the Servants’ Quarters to see the domestic side of life ‘below stairs’ and this Christmas the Historic Kitchens decorated in a traditional style.
Outside you can marvel at the ever-changing shades and textures of the parkland landscape throughout the winter season. Choose your own pace and explore the ‘Capability’ Brown landscape at your leisure.
