Nestled underneath the South Downs and edged by woodland with far reaching views across the Sussex Weald, Tilton House sits impressively in the natural landscape. The Georgian country house was once home to economist John Maynard Keynes and ballerina Lydia Lopokova as their retreat for contemplation and calm.
London is only an hour away and Brighton a 20 min car journey. Glyndebourne is just 10 minutes by car. Charleston Farmhouse, home to the Bloomsbury set, shares the same private road, which winds into a network of footpaths that is The South Downs Way. Walk up onto the downs and find expansive views over the English Channel, stirring to the soul on any day.
The house was completely redecorated in May 2007, and all 7 bedrooms were decorated using natural materials. Every room has plenty of character and all have views over either the Sussex Weald or Downs. The garden has many mature trees, you could sling one of the many hammocks and relax to the sound of birdsong.
For the more energetic there is a tennis court hidden behind a row of ash trees. The firepit in a woodland clearing provides the perfect setting for spinning yarns and stargazing as night closes in. It's known that Lydia Lopokova the Russian Ballerina was inspired to dance on the lawns under the moonlight.
Our workshop area was a study added by Maynard Keynes. It's a deeply peaceful and atmospheric space with large wall-to-floor arched windows that look south across the downs. Keynes said of the place, "There is no better air than here for work."
We hold a variety of workshops from here and during the warmer months its possible to use the grounds and courtyard too.
