Balthazar | Large Manor House | Chiddingfold, Surrey, West Sussex

Rising from the ground in a statement of Georgian glory, this lavish self-catering manor house in Chiddingfold is the ultimate luxury pad for a family gathering or house party in Surrey. Rotate from indoor swimming pool to hot tub, to steam room in winter; from the sun terrace to outdoor pool and lake in summer. Balthazar's modern take on traditional luxury creates the most magnificent mansion imaginable. 

Large country house with swimming pool Chiddingfold Surrey


Over the crest of a hill, down a sweeping drive and through open parkland filled with pheasants, Balthazar stands as proud as a wedding cake on the top table of the finest espousal ever attended. Flanked by exceptionally manicured lawns and filled with glossy golden hues, this large self-catering home has pulled out all the stops to impress. The stairwell atrium floods the marble floors with natural light while the grand Roman-esque pool was created by film set designers. Also featuring an atmospheric cinema room, tennis court and entertainment wing, Balthazar is ready and awaiting your royally raucous country escape.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

The first floor features five elegantly dressed king-size suites in total; including one family suite with king-size and single bedrooms, plus a master suite comprising a bedroom, morning room, separate his'n'hers dressing rooms and corresponding bathrooms. Upstairs on the second floor are four large four-poster bedrooms with walk-in wardrobes and en suites. Every bedroom at Balthazar has an luxurious en suite bathroom complete with rainfall shower. 


With oodles of garden to explore, an outdoor pool and tennis court to work up a sweat in, there really is no need to leave the gorgeous grounds of this stately manor. Recline in the sunken garden, watch birds come and go on the lake and cook up a storm for the masses on the barbecue. If you really must leave, you'll find the quintessential English village of Chiddingfold with its neat village green just a mile down the road, and the South Downs National Park beyond where stunning walking routes slice through the rolling hills and coast.

For Relaxation

From family parties to weekends spent pampering with friends, Balthazar is as diverse as it is divine. Start with the gym followed by a few lengths of the pool (indoors or out depending on the season) then, after brunch, fierce competition awaits on the tennis court or bowling alley! Afternoons can be enjoyed sunbathing by the copper fountains or curling up on the plush sofas in the booming sound-proof cinema room. There is a second kitchen and a treatment room, allowing guests to hire our highly recommended in-house spa therapists or chefs to cater for every whim. 


There is ample parking for several cars. There are two small staff cottages in a private courtyard at the rear of the house to ensure security and offer someone on hand to assist with any questions about the property. A lift offers easy access from the ground floor to both levels. Guests can bring their own staff to stay on site, please ask for details.

Our Take

Property Owner Gerard says

There are so many special features to our glorious house such as the two swimming pools, tennis court, bowling alley and cinema, but our favourite room is the kitchen. For us this is the focal room of the house and where we enjoy our most special moments as a family.
