Lavant and beyond

The Monarchs Way, a long distance footpath, and the Centurion Way, which gives year-round access to West Dean for both walkers and cyclists, are both nearby.
Slatey Barn is perfectly positioned to enjoy many attractions in the area including the wonderful events held at the Goodwood Estate including Glorious Goodwood which is at the stunning racecourse on top of the Downs.

The cathedral city of Chichester, only three and a half miles away, is one of the great well-preserved Georgian cities in the UK. The city’s broad streets are packed with Listed buildings headed by the towering presence of the Cathedral. The city centre is neatly enclosed within the ancient city walls, which helps to make Chichester compact and pleasant to explore on foot. It is a cosmopolitan, vibrant and friendly city proudly combining two thousand years of heritage with a lively lifestyle.
