A Grade 1 Listed Country house – Formerly Stanmer House Brighton

Stanmer House Brighton

Proud Country House is set among the vast grounds of Stanmer Park, a destination venue where you can combine a walk in the country with a bite to eat or a cuppa in the sweeping gardens. What is particularly impressive is the warm hospitality, friendliness, the multiple uses of the building and the different people it attracts.

At the bar at Proud-Country-House Restaurants BrightonDog walkers and their pooches are also welcome into the building at the bar, so an ideal spot for some afternoon tea after an invigorating walk. Just a ten-minute drive from Brighton and free parking right outside, Stanmer house is an easy escape from the bustle of the city.

Making Sussex the Source of Flavour

    Excellent venue for a trip to the countryside. Stunning gardens, a great range of food available and I thought i’d take the time to write this feedback as it seems to be getting much better in recent months. Keep up the good work Stanmer House!
