We are a landed Estate in the heart of the Sussex Weald
Knepp is a 3,500 acre (1400 hectares) Estate in West Sussex just south of Horsham.
The Estate has been owned by the Burrells for over 220 years. At its heart, overlooking Knepp Lake, is a castle built by the architect John Nash, which remains the family home.
Until recently most of the land on the Estate was devoted to traditional arable and dairy farming but in 2001 we shifted our focus entirely and embarked on a series of regeneration and restoration projects aimed primarily at nature conservation and a less intensive way of meat production wildland project.
The Estate has a large portfolio of properties with a wide variety of cottages, houses, offices and light industrial units, and also stables.
