Coates Castle, which is Listed Grade II, was built by John King in the 1820s in the Strawberry Hill Gothic Style. He sold the property to George Wyndham whose Coat of Arms appears above the main entrance. There is a lot of history attached to the house with many famous visitors including Sir Winston Churchill and Kaiser Wilhelm. Lt Col Stewart Blacker developed the PIAT anti tank gun during World War II whilst at Coates Castle.
Coates Castle is constructed of stuccoed stone with crenulated gables, buttresses and gothic style turrets. The property is set well back from the lane down its own drive, past woodland and ancient trees and surrounded by Barlavington Estate land and beautiful open countryside.
Coates Castle is situated in a rural hamlet, close to Fittleworth, within the South Downs National Park. The area is well known for lovely walks on the surrounding common land and the open countryside. The town of Pulborough is nearby and provides a good selection of shops, two supermarkets and the main line station to London (Victoria). The market town of Petworth has much to offer with Petworth House and Park, owned by the National Trust. The Cathedral town of Guildford to the North and Chichester to the South have renowned theatres and a wide selection of shops, restaurants and leisure facilities.

The historic town of Arundel is 7 miles distant and has a Castle, The Wetland Centre, boat trips on the River Arun and Amberley Museum nearby.
