Micklepage consists of two beautiful historical houses set within their own grounds and located in a peaceful rural village close to the West Sussex town of Horsham. The properties consist of a 14th Century medieval timber framed farmhouse which sleeps 14, a 17th Century barn sleeping 12 and a separate and unique barn chapel. The properties are set within beautiful grounds complete with ponds and orchard and adjoining farms and woodland.
The buildings are old and therefore accessibility is unfortunately limited. Any particular access requirements should be discussed with the bookings secretary.
Micklepage is managed and maintained by a charitable trust and the Trustees and Council carry on the work of the original members of the community who lived, farmed, and taught here. While the Trustees and Council manage and care for the property, there is no resident warden. Groups who come here look after themselves for both catering and housework. For this reason we ask that every booking has a nominated group leader who can be responsible for ensuring that the group adheres to the booking conditions.
Examples of some recent visitors include Learning disability charity residentials, photography training and walking groups, Deanery and church retreats and many family and social reunions.
Storage heating in each room. The farmhouse kitchen has an AGA and oil is also included.
