‘Health & Wellbeing’ at its royal finest at King Edward VII Estate

Nestled within 165 acres of woodland and green spaces just outside of Midhurst, the development is dedicated to walkers, cyclists, dog walkers, children and wildlife, providing an opportunity to exercise in a calm and relaxing space which is known for relieving high blood pressure, obesity, stress and depression.

Residents can also relish mornings with the papers in the Arts & Crafts main building’s sumptuous reading room or dining hall or retire for a blissful afternoon with a good book to the iconic formal gardens, originally laid out by influential 19th century garden designer, Gertrude Jekyll. The original gardens were crucial in the rehabilitation of patients recovering in the hospital due to Jekyll’s beliefs in the healing power of plants. Having been beautifully reinstated by City & Country, along with three miles of ‘measured walks’ which were originally designed for patients to help boost immune systems, reduce anxiety and improve sleep, residents can also benefit amongst the fresh air and natural surroundings.

For those feeling active, the Estate also boasts a gym offering workout and resistance equipment, and a spa style swimming pool complete with sauna and steam room. A tennis court will also be built in the near future.

Residents can also continue their ‘health and wellbeing’ journey when not at home. The Estate is located on the doorstep of the South Downs National Park which offers miles of beautiful, undulating West Sussex countryside. The relaxed, rural character and vibrant community spirit of Midhurst itself earnt its recognition as one of the best places to live in the UK, whilst local wellbeing facilities include Cowdray Park (which hosted the largest yoga gathering last year), Petworth Park, tennis, badminton, pilates, yoga and health food shops.

Previously the site of a tuberculosis sanatorium founded by King Edward VII in 1906, Metis Homes has built nineteen three and five bedroomed homes which combine contemporary luxury with period charm, all named after classic Royal British names. Each home benefits from unusually large bedrooms, French windows which open into a private landscaped garden, whilst most also boast a studio above the double garage -an ideal space for a fitness room perhaps.
