Set within countryside designated an Area of Outstanding Natural
Beauty, Storrington is the epitome of a tranquil Sussex village,
complete with duck pond, cricket pitch, tea rooms and vibrant
community spirit. A settlement since pre-historic times,
Storrington appeared in the Domesday Book in 1086, as
Estorchestone, "the place of the storks" and was a market town from
1399 until the beginning of the 20th century.
This fast developing location remains remarkably unspoilt, with
an elegant stately home - Parham House - set amidst rolling
parkland, a delightful 11th century parish church and charming
independent stores dotted along the quaint high street.
Surrounded by some of the prettiest villages in the county -
Amberley, Petworth, Lodsworth and Bury are overflowing with
antiques shops, art galleries and attractive vistas - Storrington
is also just 15 miles away from the bustling market town of
Horsham, which offers an extended selection of shopping and leisure
facilities. Guildford and Chichester, with their renowned theatres
and festivals, are both within easy reach.
There are excellent recreational facilities in the area: West
Sussex is a golfers' paradise with a round at West Chiltington or
at the highly-rated Pulborough a particular pleasure. In addition,
Storrington residents can enjoy polo at Cowdray Park, racing at
Goodwood and Fontwell, and sailing out of Chichester Harbour and
other centres along the South Coast.
