Uppark: a tranquil and intimate 18th-century house

Perched on its vantage point high on the South Downs ridge, Uppark commands views as far south as the English Channel.  Outside, the intimate gardens are being gradually restored to their original 18th-century design, with plenty of space in the adjacent meadow to play and relax with a picnic.  The nearby woodland is great for exploring and den-building.  

Uppark's Georgian interiors illustrate the comfort of life ‘upstairs’, in contrast with the grim ‘downstairs’ world of the servants. One of our collection highlights is one of the best examples of a 17th century doll's house in the country.
