Lydhurst is a family owned country estate in West Sussex. Nestling in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and renowned for its far-reaching views across the South Downs, Lydhurst is a picturesque landscape punctuated with intimate areas of woodland, formal gardens, lakes and parkland.
Designed as a haven, Lydhurst was for generations a place for a lucky few to enjoy. We want to expand this legacy and share this enjoyment with others. Our vision for Lydhurst is founded in easy enjoyment, conservation, enhancement, and understanding; with our foremost objective being to care for this extraordinary landscape. We think being here is a welcome retreat from time pressures, digital domination, closed-in horizons. We hope that when you are with us you can relax, reconnect with the natural environment; step back, recalibrate and reboot. But don’t worry, we have have good wifi too! Whether you like your nature close up, or mostly through a window next to a cosy fire, it’s good to re-connect.
On the estate you will see grazing cattle and working farm machinery, along with a team of dedicated gardeners and our estate manager. Many of the team live on site. We are all committed to maintaining and promoting the English countryside and are passionate about land stewardship and conservation.
