Mousehall was first recorded in the Domesday book in 1086 and since then has been a working farm with a prosperous history.

Mousehall Country Estate lies within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in a secluded valley on the northern edge of the parish of Mayfield in East Sussex.

The property was first known as Mousehall from as early as the Norman Conquest (11th century). The name Mousehall came from the first traceable owner, James de Mouleshale "James of Mousehall".


…Mousehall was brought back to life

Distillery & Winery

In 2017, Gary and Kathy Jordan owners of Jordan Wine Estate in South Africa discovered the neglected and over-grown property. With a background in Viticulture and the love of a challenge, Mousehall Country Estate was brought back to life.

In 2021 the Jordan’s converted an abandoned barn into what is now their Distillery & Winery, one of the first Distilleries in a Winery in the UK.

Mousehall is not only home to the Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier vineyard, and various gin botanicals, but to 18 Dorper sheep, 9 beehives, Runner & Mallard Ducks and Cody, Charlie and Marmalade, the Mousehall pets.
