Parham House & Gardens

Welcome to Parham House, a timeless beauty set in the heart of Sussex and nestled on 875 acres worth of stunning countryside which compromises of gardens, farmlands, forestry and a historic deer park.

Explore the gorgeous and elegant Elizabethan house which is Parham House. The foundations of this impressive building were laid in 1577 and it has been the adored family home of the Pearson family since 1922, only the third family to have ever lived at Parham House. Though lovingly restored, this beautiful stately home boasts some wonderful original features including fine panelling, painted ceilings, stunning artworks, portraits, antiques and seventeenth century needlework collections. Enjoy an informative tour through this awe-inspiring house through the Great Chamber, The Long Gallery and The Ship Room.

As well as this breath-taking home, Parham Estate boasts a wide breadth of scenery to enjoy such as its lush gardens. Visit the Walled Garden where you can explore four unique areas such as the herbaceous borders, the vegetable garden, the glass house and the 1920s Wendy House. Alongside these floral delights is the orchard and the pleasure grounds with its own lake and Veronica’s Maze – a great place to have fun with the kids whilst enjoying the spectacular views and countryside.

For those wanting to experience the 875 acres of countryside on foot, the estate has much to explore. There is plenty to look out for in this blissfully tranquil Sussex landscape such as ancient oak trees, fallow deer, the tucked-away Ice House and even rare insects such as the native English Field Cricket. There is a public footpath that takes you through Parham Park where you can make the most of this natural gem, dogs are also welcome but need to be kept on leads to protect the wildlife.

Filled with beauty, culture and history, Parham House & Gardens is the perfect destination for anyone wanting a day out in the stunning countryside of Sussex.
