Copthorne is a small Sussex village popular with families. It has all the atmosphere of a village yet only a stones throw away from the road and rail links to London, Brighton and Gatwick Airport. In fact its said that people who live here love it so much they dont move, but relocate within the local area as their needs change.

Copthorne is a sociable village and the lively carnival, which has been running every year for over half a century, is a major event where the streets play host to floats, dancers and colourful characters as well as a selection of stalls and games.

There are lots of sports teams to get involved with all year round, as well as horse riding, Tulleys Farm, and a polo club. There are also lots of excellent pubs and restaurants in which to unwind, perhaps after a stroll around Ashdown Forest or Ardingly Reservoir.

Copthorne offers an array of different sized houses and roads for all types of buyers. There is also fantastic shopping available nearby at Horley or Crawley town centres.
