Chesworth Farm

Just a 10 minute stroll from Horsham town centre, is one of the district’s truly hidden gems.

Covering 90 acres, Chesworth Farm is not only steeped in history, it is a paradise of wild flowers, grass meadows and ancient hedgerows. Dating back to at least 1086, the farm was once home to Catherine Howard, the fifth wife of Henry VIII, but today it is a managed farm alive with nature and  popular with walkers, dog lovers, horse riders and cyclists.

The River Arun winds its way through the farm and a host of paths and boardwalks follow its meandering flow. Cycle enthusiasts can explore the Pedlars Way cycle route which connects Horsham to the neighbouring village of Southwater.

Remember to keep an eye out for the resident sheep, goats and llamas that call the farm ‘home’.
