March 26th, 2019 - Dorney Court tour & lunch

Dorney Court

Dorney Court is a medieval village Manor House that survives and exists today, much as it has done for close on 600 years. The building is Grade I listed and officially designated as being of outstanding architectural and historical interest.

The house is privately owned and the current owners have kindly agreed for us to have a private guided tour of the house and the adjoining church.

We begin our trip with a stop at a nearby pub, The Palmers Arms, where we have arranged a two-course lunch.

Suitably refreshed, we’ll make the short coach transfer to Dorney Court, where our guides will be ready for us.

After the tour, there will be time for you to purchase a cuppa and a cake perhaps, at Dorney Court Kitchen Garden, before we make our way home at around 4.45 p.m.

We will be using the usual coach pick-up points at the following times:
  • 08.45 a.m. - Uckfield (Bus Station)
