Petworth House West Sussex

Petworth House and Park

Overview

Petworth House in Petworth West Sussex must be on your to do list. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty with hundreds of years of history. Beautiful views, lovely gardens, an enormous collection of art. A wonderful day out for all the family.

Why did we go there?  

Petworth House and Park is famous for many things, including being used as a film set for movies such as Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent in 2014. Another film is due to be made there is 2022. West Sussex is a beautiful part of England and Petworth House is the jewel in the crown. With stunning gardens and a deer park attached to the property, we knew we were to have an excellent day.

What is there to do?

As it was March, our principal focus was on the gardens. Spring had certainly arrived, and the daffodils and crocuses were stunning. Just walking through the mature trees with carpets of plants underneath was enough to take your breath away- On and beside the lakes were ducklings with a very protective mother. Then slightly further afield was the deer park with over 700 fallow deer that have inhabited that area for over 500 years.

There is also an extensive collection of art, places to eat and many areas to just sit and enjoy the views.

As is normal in March, it was cold, but there was bright sunshine, and a good warm coat was a perfect solution to keep the chilly wind at bay on this 700 acre estate. The total area has a wall that is 14 miles long.

What did it cost?

This is a National Trust site, so just the petrol to get there.

What did we take with us?

Warm clothes. Good walking shoes are all that you need for a good day out.
