Why live in Billingshurst?

Billingshurst is a thriving village with a welcoming community, a pretty high street and a wealth of shops and leisure facilities. It has a quaint mixture of old and new properties, including farmhouses, timber-framed buildings, thatched cottages and modern developments. The heart of the village is in a Conservation Area, which protects and preserves the character of The Green and the local buildings, such as the row of medieval terraced houses that are set back from the main road.

Many later additions were designed to include features to reflect the medieval, Edwardian and Victorian homes in the area, such as the red brickwork and projected front gables, which add to the very distinctive style of this beautiful West Sussex village.

There are two local schools – Billingshurst Primary School and The Weald School & Sixth Form, which shares a site with the Billingshurst Leisure Centre. Other local facilities include the football and cricket pitches at Jubilee Fields, a skate park, fishing lake and lawn bowling club. The village is also home to a large library and the Billingshurst Community and Conference Centre that hosts a range of sports clubs and regular activities such as the monthly film night.

Plenty of leisure time can be enjoyed on the Wey and Arun Canal – just hop on one of the three tourist boats that run from Loxwood. There’s also an abundance of independent stores and many traditional pubs in the village, including The King’s Arms and the King’s Head and a selection of restaurants and cafés that cater for all tastes.
