The parish lies to the west of the District amidst very pleasant country scenery and has its fair share of old and interesting buildings. Sixty five Listed Buildings include Cowfold Farm, Yew Tree Cottage, the church (built before 1200), and a magnificent Victorian mansion called Tylney Hall. Tylney Hall is set in 66 acres of beautiful countryside and was built on the site of an earlier manor house. It has now been transformed into a luxury country house hotel boasting an Italianate lounge, wood-panelled library and glass-domed restaurant. The garden is being restored to its former glory.

Rotherwick has a network of an active footpaths radiating from the village centre to the surrounding open countryside. One of the most popular starts close to The Coach and Horses public house and crosses open fields to the ridge at Great Nightingales Copse where fine views of the village and countryside can be enjoyed.
