"A little gem of a place: The Burpham Country House... provides a wonderful retreat for the stress of modern living to those who seek tranquility and peace... Enjoy it all, the serenity of the surrounding countryside, the history, and above all a contentment and inner peace that will refresh you for your return to everyday life"
Patrick Coulcher "Unto the Hills"
The house dates from 1720, and was originally a hunting lodge for the Duke of Norfolk. You'll find a full history here.
We have a panelled Georgian lounge in restful colours, with large picture windows and a window seat, with a small, fully licensed bar. In winter, a cosy fire warms the room.
We have two dining rooms: a large and airy conservatory seating up to 21, and a chandelier-hung panelled Georgian dining room seating 16, both with stunning downland views.
The gardens surrounding the house have large borders of traditional English planting: cornflowers, catmint, and Old English roses, with plenty of seating to take tea, desserts after dining, or watch owls, stars and bats. We have a small croquet lawn if you wish to play. We have a small free car park for 11 cars. All of our gardens look directly up onto the Downs.
Lucy, our cat, follows sunlit spots around the house and garden, while Smudge, our young stray, causes havoc and chews the lampshades. Both will doze anywhere, including your lap. We also have free ranging chickens which wander around the garden.
