Kirdford Farmhouse holds a fantastic location nestled within beautiful West Sussex countryside, just a short distance outside of the village of Kirdford, while the small town of Petworth is just ten minutes away. While the home makes an excellent base for those wanting to explore the wonderful countryside surroundings, the coast is easily reachable in just forty-minutes making it a fabulous option for the beach bums too!

Kirdford Farmhouse is designed for cosy family life and entertaining. The facilities, combined with the quiet countryside location of the estate close to London, combine to give the best of both worlds. The Grade II listed Elizabethan farmhouse comfortably accommodates up to ten guests across its five well-appointed double bedrooms. Upon request, three additional children between the ages of 3-16 can be accommodated using two double sofa beds in the sitting rooms of the Pink and Mauve Suites in the main house. Please note use of the additional sofa beds is subject to an extra fee.

The current owners have very sympathetically updated Kirdford Farmhouse to create a characterful home-from-home with homely yet elegant interiors throughout. On the ground floor is the main entertaining space comprising a large sitting room and dining room, with a double aspect fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen boasting all the tools you could possibly need to whip up a delicious meal and separate utility room.

Directly off the kitchen is the large orangery with further sitting and dining areas leading directly to the gravel terrace overlooking the lake, gardens and river. Three of the bedrooms, two king-size doubles and a twin are situated in the main house, set out in the form of suites with their own sitting rooms and bathrooms. In the Dairy annexe are a further two bedrooms, a king-size double and a twin room, both complete with their own ensuite bathrooms plus a separate servery for preparing coffee, tea and simple snacks.

Outside, the children will enjoy playing croquet or boules on the large lawns or tennis on the all-weather court. For the little ones, the garden boasts a wooden club house, swings and a slide which provide hours of fun. There is outside dining for eight to fourteen with a large parasol, gas barbecue and two cruiser chairs for relaxing.

Reviews

  • Most beautiful house

    Posted by Lesley on 01/10/2021

    Most beautiful house with real character. Plenty of room for 9 of us - a suite for each family! Massive amount of parking. Very comfortable beds, plenty of hot water in the bathrooms and kitchen. We played lots of croquet and enjoyed the huge private grounds. Within walking distance of the village where there was a very useful shop and a pub where we had a delicious meal.

  • Amazing

    Posted by Jacob on 03/08/2020

    Amazing location. House full of character and well equipped. Generous hosts.

  • Wonderful

    Posted by Lydia on 16/03/2020

    We have been so lucky to spend a weekend in this wonderful house. Nestled away in the middle of its own 100 acres, it afforded us the privacy and relaxation that we needed.

  • Perfect

    Posted by Joan & Peter on 05/03/2020

    So enjoyed our precious holiday time with the family in this special home. Staying in the Dairy Annexe allowed us to escape during the day for a cup of tea away from the energetic grandchildren to recharge our batteries. Perfect!

  • Heaven...

    Posted by Marina on 17/02/2020

    Heaven. No other way to describe it!

  • Hope to return...

    Posted by Bea on 20/01/2020

    Once you fall under its spell this haven is very hard to leave. Hope to return many times in the future.
