Brief description of site

Horsted Place has 19th-century grounds and gardens of 8 hectares overlain by a late-20th-century garden designed by Geoffrey Jellicoe. These are set within a larger landscape of woodland and agricultural land. The house is now a hotel.

Brief history of site

The present house was built by Samuel Daukes for Francis Barchard in 1850. After Lord and Lady Rupert Neville bought the site in 1962, they engaged Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe to alter the house and lay out new gardens.
