Tucked away in the Sussex countryside, Farleys conjures up an extraordinary atmosphere that testifies to its position as a meeting place for some of the key personalities in twentieth century art.
Lee Miller and Roland Penrose came to live at Farleys in 1949 and for the 35 years that followed they built up a collection of contemporary art treasures, many of which were created by their friends and visitors including Pablo Picasso, Man Ray, Max Ernst, Paul Éluard and Joan Miró. The work of these and numerous others are exhibited in the house alongside those of Penrose and Miller providing visitors a fascinating look into the world of the Surrealists.
Farleys is located in Muddles Green near the village of Chiddingly which is just off the A22 between Uckfield and Hailsham in East
For those travelling by public transport, our nearest train station is in the town of Lewes from which it is approximately a 20 minute taxi journey to Farleys.
