At the foot of the South Downs National Park, the lively village of Storrington is set in beautiful West Sussex countryside with wonderful walks on the Downs from footpaths just along Kithurst Lane. 

 

Fern Road lies on the favored south side of the village and contains a   pleasant mixture of cottages and house of differing age and design, all in mature gardens. There are numerous footpaths for dog-walking, one circling the  edge of the village out to Cootham, the Crown Inn and the grounds of Parham House.

 

Storrington has a Post Office, Library, banks, coffee shops, take-aways and good restaurants.  There are good social & community amenities, with The Glebe Health Centre nearby in Monastery Lane.  The Tesco Express & petrol station in Pulborough Road is open 6am-10pm, with larger Tesco & Sainsbury's stores in neighbouring Pulborough. 

 

Leisure activities include 2 golf courses, Chanctonbury Leisure Centre & Gym (swimming at Billingshurst & Steyning); and sailing from Chichester & Littlehampton harbours. There is gliding at Parham airfield, as well as mountain biking & horse riding locally.
