This elegant country manor and tranquil garden sit so harmoniously within the landscape that one cannot exist without the other.
The house was lovingly rebuilt by its last owner, Ralph Dutton, after a catastrophic fire in 1960. Enjoy the beautifully proportioned rooms which house his exquisite collection of ceramics and art, each window offering undisturbed views to the tranquil countryside beyond.
Beautifully manicured lawns lead the eye down avenues of sculptured topiary, past borders full of the heady scent of roses, to breathtaking views across the South Downs
Regular family focused events are held at the house, please check with website.

Lots of space for running around and a pretty walled garden to explore, all in beautiful Hampshire countryside. Everyone who worked or volunteered here was very friendly and welcoming to the children. There was a fun trail for children to complete, with a medal at the end. There were also imaginative activities for very small children to join in with. There is a tea room with plenty of indoor space, as well as an outdoor picnic area. Toilets and babychanging facilities are available, as well as highchairs in the tea rooms. There are lots of special events listed on the website. It is definitely worth a visit at Christmas, when the downstairs of the house is spectacularly decked out for the season.
