Hurstpierpoint is a village steeped in centuries of history and folklore, its name derived from ‘Hurst’, an old English name for a wood, and ‘Pierpoint’, from the de Pierpoint family who travelled with William the Conqueror in 1066.
Feel the history as you walk through the high street, which retains 18th Century architecture and many charming listed buildings. Yet Hurspierpoint is not trapped in the past, this favoured village tempts you to dine out, shop for local produce and enjoy a thriving cultural scene.
Situated adjacent to the South Downs National Park, you’ll also reap the benefits from living on the doorstep of a stunning and varied natural landscape, perfect for Sunday walks and morning strolls.
A little further afield is the splendour of the south coast, easily reached by rail or road connections nearby, including the iconic seafront and destination that is Brighton & Hove, where whatever your pleasure you’ll find it here, from shopping to entertainment, café culture and much more.
Indulge your taste buds in one of the wide variety of restaurants, pubs and cafes gathered along the high street, offering a range of cuisines, from traditional pub favourites at the New Inn to dishes made from locally harvested ingredients at Morley’s Bistro.
A generous range of quality independent and branded stores, from butcher to baker, greengrocer, homeware and interior stores, make everyday shopping for essentials, or just a relaxing browse, a pleasure.
