Nestled on the edge of the South Downs National Park, Wisborough Green encapsulates a quintessentially Sussex lifestyle.
Wander through Wisborough Green on any Sunday in summer, and you are sure to hear the thwack of leather on willow as you pass the central village green; cricket is a big part of village life. Stop for a pint of local ale at one of the village’s pubs or pick up a coffee from the Old Mill Café. Choose to make this super village your home, and the thriving local community will welcome you. We should know; it’s where both Becky and Helen live!
Miles from London
The village is steeped in history; Henry 111 first gave it a Royal Charter to hold an annual fair and Thursday market in the 13th century.
These days there’s still an annual summer fete and a visiting funfair in September. The market is held monthly in the village hall, where you can buy everything from artisan bread and fresh fish to stationary and socks!
The village has something for everybody. You’ll find an Ofsted rated ‘Good’ village primary school for young families, offering a broad and balanced curriculum full of rich experiences. If you’re moving out of London, there’s a local train station in Billingshurst for those occasions when you may need to commute. Finally, if you’re choosing to spend your retirement in beautiful Wisborough Green, you can enjoy all the benefits of rural living with clubs, societies, and well-stocked village stores on your doorstep. If you no longer drive there’s even a community mini bus to help you get around.

A village guide to Wisborough Green wouldn’t be complete without noting the beautiful West Sussex countryside that surrounds the village. In springtime, you can walk through bluebell woods and enjoy the scent of wild garlic. Come summer, head a little further afield; West Wittering beach is an easy drive for family days out. And finally, in autumn and winter, enjoy a stroll in beautiful Petworth Park or discover the abandoned church in Bedham woods.
