There are few things more traditionally English than a village fête. From bunting to Victoria sponges, village fêtes are rooted in tradition. These family days are the perfect opportunity to relax and socialise, which is why Millwood Designer Homes is delighted to be sponsoring the Storrington Village Day on 29 June. Just a short stroll from Millwood’s exclusive new development, The Glebe in West Sussex, the Village Day is Storrington’s largest community day of the year.
Philip Brown, Sales & Marketing Director at Millwood Designer Homes comments: “Storrington is a picturesque English village that somehow seems to blend nostalgia for years gone by with the conveniences of modern life. It’s a wonderfully family-friendly location, which is one of many reasons why we chose it as the site of The Glebe. We are thrilled to be able to contribute to village life by sponsoring Storrington Village Day, which is one of the highlights in this socially active community.”
Storrington Village Day will see villagers enjoy live music, singing and dancing performances, a magic show, a dog show and a classic car exhibition. Other attractions will include a scarecrow-building competition, a climbing wall, archery, car boot stalls, a BBQ and a cake tent.
The Glebe is a beautiful collection of nine striking family homes, ranging in size from three to five bedrooms and including a mix of detached and semi-detached properties. Designed using a mixed palette of materials, with local stone and brick, clay roof tiles and traditional weatherboarding chosen to complement the existing architecture in the village, the homes offer unique residences for buyers looking to enjoy the best of traditional English country life.
Designed around the needs of the contemporary family lifestyle, the spacious homes provide stylish accommodation with high-specification interiors. Kitchens feature integrated appliances and plentiful storage, while bathrooms include bright white suites and stylish chrome fixtures and fittings. Externally, gardens are generously proportioned and off-street, garage parking is provided with every home.
Just minutes on foot from Storrington, West Sussex, The Glebe is ideally located for access to the South Downs National Park, which is home to everything from cosy country pubs to flourishing vineyards.

Storrington high street, meanwhile, is home to a selection of delicatessens, coffee shops and the like, while the village also has a library, a post office and three welcoming pubs.
