Parham is a traditional stone E-shaped Elizabethan mansion, built in 1557. 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.

Parham has always been a well-loved family home, and only three families have lived here since its foundation stone was laid.

Complete with a Great Hall and spectacular Long Gallery which is the third longest in England, Parham’s tranquillity and timeless beauty have changed little over the centuries. The gardens include a four-acre Walled Garden with stunning herbaceous borders and Pleasure Grounds.
