Sedgwick Park House is a privately owned home, set within 100 acres of rolling countryside. The gardens include breathtaking views of the South Downs and Chanctonbury Ring. The House was purchased by John and Clare Davison in 2001 and the Estate at the moment comprises of the house with meadows to the front, formal gardens to the rear, and the woodland site of Sedgwick Castle to the West.
John and Clare have generously opened their home to a variety of community projects, as well as hosting events on behalf of numerous charitable organisations such as Chase, Chestnut Tree, Shipley Arts Festival, Cancer Research, the Dame Vera Lynn trust and the National Garden Scheme to name but a few. They will continue to make this lovely setting available for the benefit of the local community and charities insofar as regulations allow.
The gardens have been open to the public throughout the summer courtesy of the National Gardens Scheme. Guided tours of the garden and ground floor of the house with teas on the terrace can all be booked for small private groups.
Within the estate are the remains of Sedgwick Castle which dates back to the 13th century and is being carefully maintained and restored with the guidance of English Heritage.
Images of the grounds and house can be viewed in our Photo Gallery and the lavish and detailed history of the estate can be found in our History pages. A 42 page book entitled 'The Story of Sedgwick' by Brian Slyfield and Tony Turner is available by post or can be purchased at Horsham Museum.
