Welcome to the
Gatwick Manor is an extremely attractive 15th century Grade II listed building set in ten acres of beautiful grounds. Once known as Hyders, the central building is a fine example of a Wealden Open Hall, a type of timber-framed farmhouse built by wealthy yeoman farmers in Kent and Sussex in medieval times. With walls over three feet thick in local Sussex stone, the once moated Hall still retains many original Tudor features, including fireplaces and massive timber beams, and parts of the original moat on the west side. With Brighton just 30 minutes south and central London less than an hour's drive north, The Gatwick Manor is ideally located for day trips or exploring the beautiful surrounding countryside. It's also just 30 minutes away from the South Downs National Park; a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). With its rolling landscapes and scenic towns and villages, this glorious part of the English countryside offers delightful tourist trails, including the South Downs Way. Whatever the reason for a visit, The Gatwick Manor is the perfect historic setting for enjoying delicious traditional pub food, including seasonal specials and leisurely Sunday lunches. Situated at Lowfield Heath, enveloped by ten acres of stunningly beautiful grounds, The Gatwick Manor’s earliest building – now the Great Hall - dates back to the middle of the 13th century. Originally known as Hyders, the main building is a fine example of a Wealden Open Hall, a timber-framed farmhouse once common throughout Kent and Sussex. The oak panelling, cruciform crown post and gigantic oak beams from the original hall, where the ‘ate Hyde’ family lived on the edge of Lowfield Heath, are all still intact.
