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

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 Hassocks 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 Spring 2016

Danny's Head Chef marries Danny's Waitress

Mirek and Ania were married in Brighton and held their wedding reception at Danny House. All the residents attended the celebratory dinner in the Great Hall, which was followed by dancing in the white drawing room. Our congratulations to the happy bride and groom!

The Walled Garden

All the soil, plants and weeds were dug up and removed from the borders in the walled garden and replaced with fresh soil and plants arranged by garden designers. We are looking forward to the walled garden becoming a show piece garden.

A Spring Garden

John the gardener has been planting thousands of daffodils and tulips. This spring the meadow to the north of the house was ablaze with colour.


Numerous events are held at Danny to entertain the residents and to help raise funds for charities. Over the last 12 years, some £200,000 has been raised by charities holding concerts, talks and events at Danny House.

On 3rd September 2016

Danny will be hosting its most ambitious event to date and perhaps the largest gathering of people in the 700 year history of the house. The Friends of Sussex Hospices are organising 'Festival 21' in Danny Park, which will include a 'son et lumiere' display on the east front of the house, a circus, a WW1 dogfight, a classic car and military vehicle gathering, historic battle re-enactment, live music and much more. Tickets can be purchased from www.festival21.co.uk
