EQUESTRIAN - Great Gillmans is a beautiful Grade II farmhouse listed as being of ‘17th century or earlier’ origin and which in recent years has been enlarged and extensively refurbished to provide a home of considerable character. Documented research dates the original part, an open-hall house to around 1475.
The property now offers laid out accommodation including a large dual aspect sitting room with deep inglenook fireplace, a superb refitted kitchen dining room with a vaulted dining area glazed to three sides overlooking the gardens and a separate family room. On the first floor can be found the five bedrooms, two of which offer ensuite facilities, with the family bathroom accessed from the landing.
This property is featured by our Equestrian department.
The property is situated in a rural location adjoining open farmland at the end of a long private drive, over the first part of which there is a shared access, and yet only ½ a mile from Billingshurst main line station (London Victoria/London Bridge).

Sporting and recreational facilities in the area include golf at Pulborough, West Chiltington and Slinfold, racing at Goodwood, Fontwell and Brighton and sailing from Chichester harbour whilst over the surrounding countryside there are many miles of beautiful walks and rides.
