Petworth Park

Picturesque grounds and palatial country mansion

Petworth Park

Just a whizz down the A272 from us is Petworth House and Park. With over 700 acres of walled park to explore, it has become one of the most celebrated walking spots in the South East and looked after by the National Trust. The park is home to countless Fallow deer and many enjoy the talks and tours that take part throughout the magnificent Grade I listed country mansion.

History of Petworth Park

Nestled in the South Downs, the 17th century palatial house was the first marital home for Duchess Elizabeth Percy and Duke Charles Seymour. The state rooms are rich with famous paintings by the Likes of Blake, Reynolds, and Van Dyck. Romanticist and controversial artist JMW Turner spent long periods of time at the mansion and his paintings of Petworth Park can be seen in the Carved Room today.

Lord and Lady Egremont reside in part of Petworth House today but kindly let visitors experience the state rooms and servant’s quarters of the magnificent abode.

The acres of resplendent landscape, speckled with lakes and gardens, is actually the work of none other than Capability Brown. Originally the house was surrounded by formal gardens but throughout the 1750s and 1760s, Brown created a serpentine lake framed by rolling hills to compliment the house. Complimenting his lauded natural style, Brown is responsible for the 900 deer residing in the park today.
