Nowhurst Farm House is located in a rural setting just outside the popular village of Slinfold, which has its own village shop, church, public house and pre and primary schools. Approximately four miles distance is the historic market town of Horsham, which offers a more comprehensive range of facilities including a John Lewis at Home, Swan Walk shopping centre, The Carfax, with its cobbled streets and varied Restaurant quarter, including a Michelin star winner; Horsham park and a mainline train station to London. The A24 is close by giving access to the M23 and wider motorway network, London, Gatwick and Heathrow airports and the south coast. There are also a number of excellent state and private schools in the area, including; Shelley Primary School, Tanbridge House School, Christs Hospital, Millais Girls and Forest Boys Schools, Farlington School, Pennthorpe and Cottesmore.
From Horsham, take the A281/Bishopric away from the town centre and turn onto the A24 slip road heading towards Worthing and Southwater. At the next roundabout, take the third exit onto the A264 and at the next roundabout, take the first exit to stay on the A264. After three quarters of a mile, at the next roundabout, take the second exit onto the A281 towards Guildford, and then at the following two roundabouts, take the first exit to continue onto the A281. After a further three quarters of a mile, turn left onto Nowhurst Lane, and follow the lane for half a mile almost to the end, where you find the property - a large white farmhouse with double 5-bar gates and a flag of West Sussex in the rose garden.Read all
