The mansion, like many others in West Sussex, has been converted into luxury housing - many of the grandest rooms in the building are now incorporated into spectacular apartments - and a cluster of very attractive houses have been built to the north and east of the building.
The pretty church nearby dates from the 12th century.
If you keep to the footpath you can walk through Burton Park towards Heath End where you could hook up with the Serpent Trail.
