About Southwater

This large village is a great base for families who want to mix town and countryside on their visit to Horsham District. Just three miles from Horsham Town Centre, Southwater has a lovely Country Park with a fantastic play area and is on the Downs Link bridleway route for walking and cycling. Lintott Square has pubs and restaurants, and wilder countryside like Knepp Wildland Estate are only short drives away.
