Raylands Park is surrounded by so much beautiful countryside and many of our owners come here simply for the peace and tranquillity. Others enjoy their days walking along local footpaths or cycling the highly regarded Downs Link bridleway.
The village of Southwater accessible by foot (approx a 30 minute walk) or by car (5 min drive) has all the amenities you should require from a local village including three Public Houses, a Doctors and Dentist surgery, two convenience stores, eat in and takeaway restaurants a Post Office and a Public Library amongst others. It also has a large Country Park harbouring a lakeside cafe.
Just 3 miles away is the historic market town of Horsham. This town has the perfect blend of old and new, with historic streets wrapped around a modern shopping centre – Swan Walk in the heart of the town. Horsham shopping has a really good mix of retailers large and small and is a pleasant place to shop. In recent years East Street has seen an abundance of new restaurants emerge, so eating out will not be a problem but choosing where to dine might be. Just a few yards away from the shops, The Causeway is one of the finest streets in Sussex, with a lovely mixture of old buildings, mature trees and the towering Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin. Horsham Park and the Pavilions In The Park swimming centre are also within a short walking distance.
Also within close reach is the Sussex Coast with the city of Brighton easily accessible by car or public transport. This coastal attraction will leave you spoilt for choice with Brighton Pier, the Royal Pavilion and Brighton Wheel just a few to mention, not forgetting the beach too of course. The colourful North Laine can also be found nearby. Here you will find a collection of over 400 independent businesses and spend many happy hours shopping and exploring the narrow streets.
