Northfields House is an Edwardian country villa between Chichester and Arundel in West Sussex. The house is ideal for parties of friends and families, special celebrations and weddings, or for business use.

Northfields sleeps up to 28 guests in 14 bedrooms.  There are four doubles, (three of which are en-suite, and the fourth has exclusive use of a next-door bathroom). There are seven twin-bedded rooms (two of which are en-suite), with five more bathrooms shared between them. There’s also a large attic room, en-suite, which works very well for older children or a young family.

Downstairs, there is a large drawing room and a comfortable sitting room. There is also a games room, with quarter-sized billiard table, table football and toys to distract younger children. Should any of your guests play the piano, there is an 8’ 1 Bechstein Grand piano in the music room, which is kept at concert pitch.

For dining, up to 28 guests can be sat together in the pillared hall, or else there’s a more intimate oak-panelled dining room (seating 16). The kitchen’s well-equipped and of a good size for a cook to produce a celebratory feast.

The gardens stretch to around five acres and are overlooked by a large, sunny terrace (with a BBQ and seating for up to 28). 

Northfields is heaven for any guest, but particularly the athletic type. For guests who enjoy the odd game of competitive squash, a squash court is attached to the house, with a viewing gallery off the main landing.  There is also a grass tennis court and an outdoor heated swimming pool, for paddling victory laps, or informal volleyball. For the less athletic, but still competitive, there’s a croquet lawn, with sticks and hoops available.  

Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature

“Northfields is what one’s mother might call ‘the perfect Cazalet house’, after the books by Elizabeth Jane Howard. The sort of house where the Edwardian glamour is still very much in evidence.”

About The Location

 Northfields is on the edge of the South Downs National Park, very close to the South coast (and 15 miles from Bognor Regis). It’s around an hour and forty minutes’ drive from central London. The nearest train station is Barnham.

Things To Do

Should you enjoy a day at the races, Goodwood and Fontwell Park are nearby. There’s sailing in Chichester Harbour, and walking and riding on the South Downs.
