Get to know the team at Cowdray, from Farm Managers to Foresters and everything in between. At Cowdray we are proud to employ a huge range of personalities and we hope that this page will give you an opportunity to get to know some of them...

Operations Manager, Cowdray Heritage Trust

Sally Guile

"We were absolutely delighted to have been awarded a £45,200 grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund in 2020. This money enables the Trust to carry out an options and feasibility study to secure the long-term planning for the future of the site. Fundamental to the project will be innovative engagement and consultation activities with local audiences to help shape our ideas."

Director of Golf

Tim Allen

Professionally, I am proud of how the golf club has grown and improved year on year. The golf club membership is at capacity and for the first time we have a waiting list. Many members have chosen to join us from other clubs and our main aim is to maintain people’s commitment to Cowdray and to ensure that the club provides everything they need.

Director of Events & Hospitality

Neil Georges

“Quite simply it is the rarity of the experience; it is a special place, a home. It is somewhere you can be at total peace with the ones you care most about; surrounded by private gardens, where activities are plentiful. Cowdray House is timeless and a rare form of luxury.”

Property Director

Lauren Cleghorn

​"We have a wide range of residential properties from idyllic rural farm cottages tucked away in the West Sussex countryside to multi-let blocks of flats in Midhurst town centre – and everything in between..."
