Further Information:
Danny, (from the Saxon Daneghithe, meaning a valley and heaven) which dates from about 1580, is located at the foot of the South Downs and is surrounded by extensive grounds. Unusual in that it features two "fronts" (one from Tudor times with it's tall mullioned windows and the other a Queen Anne style fašade added to the south side in the eighteenth century), the impressive Elizabethan farmhouse incorporates parts that are medieval in origin. Inside, a false ceiling was added to the Great Hall, although the original timbers can still be seen.

The terms of the Armistice were drawn up by the War Cabinet during the First World War here, whilst Danny was let to Prime Minister David Lloyd George.
