Overview

One of the top twenty in Simon Jenkins's book 'England's Thousand Best Houses'. Idyllically set in the heart of an ancient deer park, below the South Downs, the Elizabethan house contains an important collection of needlework, paintings and furniture. The spectacular Long Gallery is the third longest in England. The gardens include a four-acre Walled Garden with stunning herbaceous borders, plus Pleasure Grounds. Parham has always been a well-loved family home, and only three families have lived here since its foundation stone was laid in 1577. Its tranquillity and timeless beauty have changed little over the years. Now owned by a charitable trust, the house is lived in by Lady Emma Barnard, her husband James and their family. Open from Easter Sunday until the end of October. Please see the website for days and times.

Unfortunately we didn't get to see the house but even the gardens alone are well worth seeing. Set out so well and so much interest, good plant shop too.

Privately owned and run, Parham House is a beautiful example of an English country house. The views from the rooms delight the senses as much as the objet d'art within them. The guides in each room were extremely well informed and interesting. Check opening times...More

This gem just off the road between Pulborough and Storrington really is well worth a visit. The interior of the house (or rather half of it as the owners live in the other half) is well set out and fascinating. The long room on the...More
