Danny House “Retire in Style” a short film
Here is a short film about life in and around Danny House including activities, environment and lifestyle. Hear first hand from residents about their experience of living at Danny and meet some of the friendly staff.
Danny House is one of England's great country houses and prestigious retirement properties. Nestling at the foot of the South Downs within the National Park, this retirement home offers the best of all worlds.
Living at Danny means sharing the life of a community of like-minded people, and the knowledge that you do not have to worry about any problems of maintenance of either house or grounds. The apartments are fully serviced, with three quality meals served a day in the dining room.
Located within beautiful countryside in a Stately Home within a mile of the attractive village of Hurstpierpoint. The train station of Hassoks is 1.5 miles away, which enables you to reach London in 50 minutes, Brighton 10 minutes and Gatwick 20 minutes.
Full maintenance with no extra charges. Unlike most retirement communities, at Danny you have the advantage of being able to rent rather than buy your apartment. The rent includes meals, maintenance, heating, lighting, cleaning, and all the services one expects to find in a prestigious retirement home.

Danny House - News Winter 2015
THIS YEAR WE INVESTED CONSIDERABLE SUMS IN CONSTRUCTING A NEW OAK FRAMED BARN AT THE END OF THE CAR PARK TO INCORPORATE A WOOD PELLET FUELLED BIOMASS BOILER TO HEAT THE HOUSE AND OUR HOT WATER.
The new boiler is 100m distant from the house, and large insulated pipes bring the hot water into the basement of the house, where the heat is exchanged into the existing central heating and hot water systems. Ger-man manufacturer HDG made the new 200kW boiler and the barn stores some 25 tons of wood pellets that are supplied from wood waste products from Andover. Despite oil pric-es having significantly fallen since we installed the biomass boiler, we are confident that the new system will ensure we have a sustainable source of heating into the future.
IN 1728 A ‘HA HA’ WAS BUILT TO THE SOUTH OF THE HOUSE TO ENSURE THE MAGNIFICENT VIEW SWEEPING UP TO WOLSTONBURY HILL COULD BE ENJOYED, WITHOUT FENCES OBSCURING THE VISTA OR LIVESTOCK ENCROACHING ON THE GARDENS.
Unfortunately over many decades the ditch the other side of the wall had become in-filled and a fence been erected along its length. With the cooperation of our neighbour, we have been able to dig out the ditch, repair the wall, take down the fence and so restore the ‘ha ha’ to how it was originally conceived. This summer we purchased a large Indian Kadei bowl, which enabled us to have our first BBQ for the residents in the rose garden. This will now be an annual event.
