One of the top twenty in Simon Jenkins's book 'England's Thousand Best Houses'. 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. The spectacular Long Gallery is the third longest in England. The gardens include a four-acre Walled Garden with stunning herbaceous borders, plus Pleasure Grounds. Parham has always been a well-loved family home, and only three families have lived here since its foundation stone was laid in 1577. Its tranquillity and timeless beauty have changed little over the years. Now owned by a charitable trust, the house is lived in by Lady Emma Barnard, her husband James and their family. Open from Easter Sunday until the end of October. Please see the website for days and times.

I took my family to the Halloween weekend event yesterday, gorgeous setting & the events that were arranged were excellent. However the catering was woeful. The Big Kitchen area was obviously very busy but appeared to be understaffed & the queues were rather long &...More

We visited Parham House on a sunny autumn day, and loved the peaceful setting, especially the view from the church. We had a fascinating tour of the house, including the long gallery. There were many things to look at, from needlework to paintings, and we...More

Totally magical place - you feel as if you have stepped back in time and stopped it! The walled garden is wonderful, the grounds and views and the house itself is fab. A great history and still lived in by a family -wonderful

We are members of the National Trust & HHA(which Parham is a part of) so we have visited many historic properties but this was something else! Starting at the entrance hall the paintings in this house are outstanding - apparently 92 came with the property...More

We visited Parham house today before it closed later in October for the season, and we were not disappointed. Although there were light showers the gardens are mainly paved and there are plenty of nooks to hide in if you get caught by a larger...More

The gardens open at 1200 and the house at 1400 so this makes Parham a great afternoon visit. Lovely gardens although late August probably past their best. The house is well worth the wait for its opening, very interesting and informative as to its history....More

For a start entrance price is much less than a similar National Trust property. Parham feels lived in and owes almost everything you see including contents to the devoted restoration carried out by Clive and Alicia Pearson between the two world wars. The long gallery...More

I had never heard of this house before visiting and am surprised about that. It's an amazing house built in the 1500's and rescued by a dedicated family. The extensive gardens alone are well worth a visit ! We couldn't believe it was only £12.10...More
