Slindon Estate is 1,400 hectares of woodland, downland, farmland, and parkland. With countless historic landscape features and its unspoilt Sussex village, there is something for every visitor.
Take a couple of hours to stroll around the village or a whole day to stride out upon the 40km of rights of way that criss-cross the estate. In spring, there are spectacular woodland flower displays across the estate. In summer, wander the shady woodland lanes up through the estate to encounter butterflies on the springy downland turf of Bignor. Autumn brings a fantastic leafy show of colours in Park Wood. Winter is a brilliant time to seek out Slindon’s many historic landscape features such as Stane Street - over three miles of Roman road - and the Medieval Pale (deer park boundary).
Whatever the season, take in the long wide views down to the Weald, along the Downs, and out across the coastal plain to the sea. Whether you explore on foot, by bike, or on horseback Slindon is like a book that you can’t put down.
