Rogate and the nearby village of South Harting both have pubs, shops, post offices, primary schools, and many clubs and societies.

Chichester is a comfortable drive over the Downs and beyond are the harbours, beaches and creeks of the South Coast. There are a good number of footpaths and bridleways in the surrounding area including The South Downs Way and The Sussex Border Path. The Goodwood and Cowdray Estates are within easy reach with their wonderful choices of sporting events.
