Set at the foot of the Sussex Downs and within its own parkland, this unique house (originally Tudor) is built of Caen stone and was remodelled in the 18th Century. The house contains a magnificent collection of Old Master paintings, fine English and European furniture and an impressive collection of Sèvres porcelain. Firle Village makes a great starting point for any adventure in the South Downs National Park and boasts a wonderful village pub with excellent food and locally sourced ales. The village leads to a myriad of routes and footpaths over the Downs to the sea. The Old Coach Road follows the undulating escarpment and was the original route linking Brighton and Eastbourne, it is popular with hikers, horse riders and mountain bikers in the summer.
The private gardens surrounding Firle Place cover nearly 300 acres, 190 of which are parkland and are maintained by a team of full-time gardeners. Please note, house admission does not include private areas of the gardens and grounds. Please contact the Estate Office for more information to the days of the year these are open to the public. The formal gardens start with the parterre at the front entrance and lead to the the North Borders. These form part of the late 19th Century garden, which is planted with mixed borders of shrubs and herbaceous perennials.
