Tilton is a storied house, and was the perfect setting for my (ten) Reading Weekends. You can tuck yourself away in the library or take a seat round the vast, but cosy kitchen table. Every meal is delicious. Fall asleep to the sound of owls and wake to the chatter of pheasansts. Bloomsbury country without the bad bits.
— Damian Barr - Salonierre/ Reading Weekend

Is it the South Downs National Park with its kind rolling landscape, stunning views filled with wild flora and fauna that proves the draw to guests staying on retreat at Tilton. or is it the simple understated elegance and history of the Bloomsbury group, some of whom lived and entertained here. Maybe its the proximity to London, Brighton an the easy networks that yield a kind route here.  Some say it's a magic that keeps them returning here, for others its the excellent clean food, that's made lovingly on site using ingredients from our kitchen garden. Perhaps it's just that the pace is slower and nature is in abundance.

Despite having ample space for 15 on retreat, there are plenty of secret spaces to escape and allow the quiet to take hold and lose the inner chatter of a busy life.The walking routes are many and over varied ground suitable for all levels. Guests with creative leanings, will no doubt be inspired by a visit to Charleston Farmhouse.
