Surrounded by Ashdown Forest, which according to the famous children’s author, A. A. Milne, is the woodland that inspired his Winnie The Pooh stories, the Ashdown Park Hotel and Country Club offers the heights of luxury in the heart of East Sussex. Country house hotels in Sussex don’t come more luxurious, or offer such a magnificent combination of elegance, style, award winning dining and outstanding business and leisure facilities. Lying between the historic towns of East Grinstead, Uckfield and Crowborough, Ashdown Park is also one of the most sought after spa hotels in Sussex, where you can enjoy relaxing treatments and therapies in our luxuriously appointed Country Club which overlooks our beautiful gardens and landscaped 18 hole par 3 golf course. Being located close to major international gateways, such as the Channel Tunnel and Gatwick Airport, means we also attract European guests who enjoy our unique brand of English country house living which harks back to a bygone age. We’re also within easy reach of Glyndebourne so are perfect for music lovers, and we have special rooms set aside for guests with four legged friends,
so we’re just as popular with dog lovers too. Experiencing the award-winning cuisine and elegant ambience of the Anderida Restaurant is a must for lovers of gourmet dining. For lovers of cycling the Hotel has some of the best mountain bike trails in Sussex within the very grounds, and the Ashdown Forest itself has one of the most picturesque cycle routes Sussex has to offer. At the Country Club you can indulge yourself at the sauna and Spa, and for the more active there’s an indoor swimming pool and gymnasium. There are also tennis courts, a practise putting green, croquet lawns and jogging trails through the beautiful grounds and woodlands. In fact, conservation of the natural beauty of the estate we have inherited has always been as important to us as the restoration of the main house, and we invite all our guests to enjoy the gardens and explore the wildlife trails. Who knows, you could find yourself walking in the footsteps of Pooh and Christopher Robin. One thing for sure though is that you’re sure to stumble across our herds of wild deer that are free to roam wherever they choose across the estate and grounds.
