    About this property

    A unique Grade II listed Medieval Hall surrounded by an acre of gardens in the village of Bignor, West Sussex. Still retaining its original features including vaulted ceilings and fine timberwork, The Yeoman’s House is a unique characterful retreat for a family or group of friends.

    Step inside into the hallway, where you will find a small study area. This leads to the spacious sitting room featuring an imposing feature inglenook fireplace and traditional exposed timberwork. Sit back in the comfortable sofas and enjoy a relaxing evening in after an action-packed day.

    Contrasting with the age of the house, the streamlined and contemporary kitchen with stainless steel units provides everything needed for the group to prepare hearty meals which everyone can enjoy in the dining area.

    An oak staircase takes you upstairs to the vaulted bedrooms, the master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and striking original chimney breast, a twin room, and a further twin bedroom with a mezzanine TV area. A family shower room completes the accommodation.

    Outside, The Yeoman’s House is surrounded by an extensive lawned garden bordered by mature hedging. There is a flagstone terrace where you can sip a refreshing drink as the sun goes down. In addition, there is a separate orchard for you to explore and a swing.

    The small village of Bignor is known for its preserved Roman Villa and wonderful walks up Bignor Hill. The historic town of Arundel, is a ten minute drive, home to the ancient 12th century Arundel Castle and many independent shops, art galleries and restaurants. Alternatively visit the market town of Petworth, known for its antique shops and Petworth House (National Trust).

    A fascinating base for the whole family to enjoy.

    Arundel sits just outside the South Downs National Park and with the River Arun winding through the town makes for a popular tourist destination when visiting Sussex. Combining one thousand years of history with independent shops, contemporary art galleries, restaurants, cafes, delightful drinking spots and great attractions, Arundel has a thriving events calendar. With leisure pursuits from walking across the South Downs to canoeing, boating or cycling, there is something for everyone when you visit Arundel. The town's long and varied history dates back to 1086 when it was mentioned in the Domesday Book and during the 14th century it became the seat for the Dukes of Norfolk. Arundel Castle is one of the longest inhabited country houses in England and is open to the public from April to October. Arundel Cathedral stands majestically over the town and is open every day. This beautiful building is well worth a visit but be ready for the steep climb up the hill and along cobbled streets. So much to see and do no matter what the weather or time of the year, Arundel is the perfect choice, now all you have to decide is "how long can I stay?"

    "If you are looking for something different then this is it. It is a very old house so there are steep staircases and the layout is a bit quirky, but plenty of space for 6 adults."
    Mr Jemmett and Mr Hutchinson
    "Good location for exploring the area. Well equipped."
    New Year guests
    "Loved the comfort of the master bedroom. Great stay. Amazing house. Perfect for walks."
    Mr Wood
    "Everyone who stayed there or visited was enchanted by the age and character of the property as we were, and had many questions. The house looks splendid as a backdrop in some of the pre-wedding photos we took inside and outside. The wedding venue, the weather (especially as the ceremony was outside) and The Yeoman's House as our home for the weekend were all brilliant."
    Mr & Mrs Morris
    "We visited nearby Petworth house and village and Midhurst Cowdray estate and wondered the lanes. We took the very short walk on the footpath to the side the house to the Roman Villa and marvelled at the mosaics and walked to the White Horse pub in Sutton and had a meal. We sat on the bench by the church and enjoyed the vista and calm. We watched the pheasants on the lawn, listened to the owls, visited by robins and squirrels. We were rained on and sunned on and just relaxed for a few days. In the words of the song ' Who could ask for anything more?'"

    "Beautiful location, gorgeous gardens, a truly historic home. We had everything we needed ...and more. We visited Arundel, the Roman Villa just a few moments walk away, and enjoyed walking on the South Downs. We would recommend Kingly Vale, the Weald and Downland Museum too."

    "Thank you for a lovely stay."
    Guest's review on TripAdvisor
    "The house is large and spacious and has an incredible history. The kids had an absolutely fantastic time both inside the house and running around the huge garden. With an acre to explore and a trampoline to bounce on they were never bored. We played frisbee for hours in the back garden and had an Easter egg hunt on Easter Sunday which we will never forget! The owners were very helpful, giving us lots of recommendations of local pubs and places of interest before we stayed. We went to a pub they recommended for lunch which was fantastic and took the kids to Singleton Open Air Museum where we got to visit another medieval house just like the Yeoman's but without the modernisation. It was fascinating. All in all it was a unique and special experience staying in such an old house with so much character and all mod cons that we thoroughly enjoyed."

    "Garden is a delight. Ourselves and our guests had a wonderful stay."

    "A really wonderful house beautifully adapted for 21st century living whilst retaining so much character. Loved the comfort of the master bedroom. Great stay. Amazing house. Perfect for walks."
    Mr Wood
    "Our stay at The Yeoman's House was very much enjoyed, as we used it as our base for my daughter's wedding at Bignor House on Saturday 24th September. Everyone who stayed there or visited was enchanted by the age and character of the property as we were, and had many questions. The house looks splendid as a backdrop in some of the pre-wedding photos we took inside and outside. The wedding venue, the weather (especially as the ceremony was outside) and The Yeoman's House as our home for the weekend were all brilliant."
    Mr & Mrs Morris
    "We oohed and aahed at the house and gazed at the lovely garden settling into autumn. We visited nearby Petworth house and village and Midhurst Cowdray estate and wondered the lanes. We took the very short walk on the footpath to the side the house to the Roman Villa and marvelled at the mosaics and walked to the White Horse pub in Sutton and had a meal. We sat on the bench by the church and enjoyed the vista and calm. We watched the pheasants on the lawn, listened to the owls, visited by robins and squirrels. We were rained on and sunned on and just relaxed for a few days. In the words of the song ' Who could ask for anything more?'"

    Guest's review on TripAdvisor
    "My sister and I stayed in The Yeoman's House over Easter weekend with our three young children and had a fabulous time. The house is large and spacious and has an incredible history. The kids had an absolutely fantastic time both inside the house and running around the huge garden. With an acre to explore and a trampoline to bounce on they were never bored. We played frisbee for hours in the back garden and had an Easter egg hunt on Easter Sunday which we will never forget!
