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.
