Winkworth Farm
Winkworth Farm
Winkworth Farmhouse has a timber-framed central section could date back to ca. 1565 but 1580-1600 is a good guide. Side extensions were added ca. 1775. Remodelling has since occurred, notably by architect Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1895.
The terrace and garden were designed by Gertrude Jekyll. The farm house has had famous 20th Century owners, notably creator of neighbouring Winkworth Arboretum, Dr Wilfrid Fox, and wildlife artist & conservationist, David Shepherd. Extensive grounds surround the farm.
The farm name could come from Richard de Wynkworthe of Hascombe Manor, in the 14th Century.
Today's landscaped front garden is styled on an Elizabethan knot garden.
The cost of Winkworth Farm in 2007 was a cool 3,500,000.
