WINDLESHAM HISTORY

An impressive, Edwardian country house, where Sir Arthur Conan Doyle spent the final 23 years of his life living happily with his wife and family at Windlesham Manor.

H.G. Wells, Rudyard Kipling, Lord Kitchener and Sir Edward Marshall Hall were amongst their famous guests. In his first floor study the writer wrote many stories including ‘The Poison Belt’ which contains a passage said to be based on the view from the study window. Other descriptions of views across the South Downs and Sussex Weald are recounted in his writings.

The house retains the  country house ambience from a time gone by where a happy and relaxed atmosphere prevails at Windlesham Manor today.
