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.

I absolutely love the walled gardens at Parham, less manicured than the NT gardens, more natural and real, fantastically sectioned into naturalist orchard planting, cottage garden, kitchen garden and hothouse sections.

A great experience marred by the cost of the cake which when questioned was advised to be a “special price” - it certainly was!!
