Cowdray House's stunning lounge


Cowdray House is set in a stunning 16,500 acre estate in West Sussex, overlooking the beautiful South Downs National Parks, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The house, as it is seen today, dates back to 1875, when the Keeper’s Lodge was rebuilt as Cowdray House. The estate was purchased in 1909 by Sir Weetman Dickinson Pearson, who became Viscount Cowdray in 1917. The Estate remains in the Pearson family to this day, most recently the family home of the 4th Viscount and Viscountess Cowdray, who have extensively restored and refurbished Cowdray House to become one of the most luxurious exclusive-use venues in the South West.
