You can use satellite navigation for the most part of your journey but please be advised that it does not work once you leave A27. There have been too many cars that ended up in ditches by following the voice of their navigation.
Here is what you need to know: take the Charleston, turn off of the A27, just past the middle farm if you are coming from the west. Follow the broken private road but go past the turn off for Charleston farmhouse after which the road bends left with the South Downs on your right. You are then driving between two fields. As soon as you reach a barn directly in front of you, take a small track left. Drive slowly and continue on to the end and onto a gravel driveway. You are now at Tilton House.
