Location

Thakeham is a quintessential English village with a variety of properties ranging from pretty period cottages to more modern homes together with a pub and church in the older part of the village. The recently opened Meadow Stores and Cafe provide a hub for the village near the Cricket pitch and Thakeham village hall. The larger village of Storrington situated at the foot of the South Downs and giving access to the South Downs National Park is just over two miles away and provides a good range of local shops and amenities including a Waitrose Store, library, health centre, dentists together with a wide variety of sports and social clubs. The nearest train station is at Billingshurst approximately 5 miles to the north with services to London Victoria and the coast. The larger centres of Horsham and Worthing are approximately 13 and 12 miles respectively.

Why live in Storrington?

This picture-perfect village lies at the foot of the South Downs National Park, halfway along the South Downs Way. Properties here include bungalows, family homes and the famous Wells cottages that were individually designed by the architect Reginald Fairfax Wells in the 1920s to look and feel like 17th century buildings with thatched roofs, small windows and whitewashed exteriors.

Many of the homes in Storrington have wonderful views across rolling countryside and a conservation area just off the bustling high street ensures Storrington will remain as beautiful as it is today for generations to come.

There are lots of specialist shops in the town and convenient amenities such as the large recreational ground with its football and cricket pitches, the Chanctonbury Leisure Centre and an abundance of community groups offering classes in all sorts of interesting activities from ballroom dancing to photography. For a spot of culture, visit the Parham House and Gardens or the local Storrington and District Museum and for outdoor pursuits, take time to explore the natural beauty of the South Downs on foot, bike or horseback or, for a truly spectacular experience, take to the air in a glider.

Our local schools belong to a cluster group called STARS (Storrington Area Rural Schools) and, between them, offer a choice of paths from Reception through to Year 13. Steyning Grammar School is included in the list of STARS and is a popular choice as it’s non-selective and has its own Sixth Form.

Storrington is well connected too; the nearest train station is in the neighbouring village of Pulborough. The five-mile journey only takes 10 minutes by car or you can take a bus; the bus timetable is synced with the train timetable to make life even easier for local commuters.
