Brief description of site
Saddlescombe Farm is situated on the scarp slope of the South Downs in a coombe valley facing north. The land behind the farm rises steeply, giving access to the chalk downland. The National Trust purchased the estate in 1995 to form part of their Devil's Dyke Estate. The National Trust considers that Saddlescombe reflects the layout of a farm typical of the mid-19th century (around 1850) which had grown organically from an origin in the early-17th century.
