Folkington Manor, Folkington, East Sussex, BN26 5SD
Folkington Manor (pronounced "Fo'ington") is a grade II* listed English country house situated in the hamlet of Folkington, in East Sussex between Lewes and Eastbourne.
Set in a secluded position at the foot of the South Downs, surrounded by over 85 acres of imperious lawns and wooded grounds, Folkington Manor has a romantic history and long association with the arts. Indeed the well known 'Long Man of Wilmington' stands in the distance on Windover Hill.
Events have included weddings, private theme parties, talks and performances, fundraisers, conferences, screenings, fairs, without forgetting equestrian shows and competitions.
Folkington Manor is approached from its own gate lodge over a long gravel drive that leads to the house. A fine stone paved terrace runs along the east facade overlooking a neatly clipped knot garden with flint paths surrounded by trimmed yew hedges, garden ornaments and a bank of spring bulbs.
Folkington Manor is only open on specified events days and is not open to visitors any other time of year.
