The eleven hundred acre, privately owned Bignor Park Estate is situated in stunning surroundings at the foot of the magnificent South Downs.
Tucked away down an impressive half mile long drive, Bignor Park House is majestic but with an understated style, and the Park has a rugged charm.
The spectacular eleven acres of gardens and the stables are available to hire for weddings, parties and corporate events.
Built in the early nineteenth century, Bignor Park’s Georgian architecture and historic parkland are exceptional. It was once the home of the famous Romantic poet Charlotte Turner Smith, a major influence on William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge. It now belongs to Viscount and Viscountess Mersey and has been in the family for one hundred years.
