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.
