Country Experience

Ultimate Country Experience


Make the beauty and bounty of the incredible South Downs your own with our ultimate country experience. Whether you are an adventurer, a gourmand, or just in search of some serious pampering, with one of the country’s most prestigious estates and finest inns at your service, we can help you create your own ultimate Epicurean journey tailor-made to you and the perfect gift for Dad on his birthday or Father’s Day.

Arrive at The White Horse in Chilgrove, a beautiful boutique country inn nestled at the very foot of the South Downs, and settle down in your luxurious room. The chefs here know how to make the most of the area’s rich woodlands and nearby coastline. You’ll be able to savour the finest game and seafood with a four course tasting menu paired with some of the fine wines from their extensive cellar before enjoying an evening soak and resting your head in your stylish four poster bed.

The next day, after a hearty breakfast of classic countryside fare, you can choose how to spend your day from our pick of luxurious countryside experiences.

Adventure Day Out at Goodwood

If you’re looking for a thrilling adventure then we can whisk you off to the nearby Goodwood Estate where you can get your adrenaline fix sharpening your shooting skills on a classic clay pigeon shoot, get behind the wheel of a BMW in an off-road tour of the estate or leave the ground behind altogether and head to the skies in a classic Cessna or Grapefruit bomber airplane.

Forest to Fork Experience

Foodies and gourmands are spoilt for choice with a number of mouth-watering Forest to Fork experiences. Try your hand at truffle hunting or, if you’re a meat lover, learn the craft of butchery with a Nose to Tail masterclass at Funtington’s Pig Farm. Or for a real treat, you could relax and enjoy an exclusive tour of the nearby Nyetimber vineyard and sample their award-winning sparkling wines.

Whatever your tastes, we’ll make sure to help create your own ultimate countryside adventure from your choice of experiences.
