We understand that taking the family away can be costly with all the extras including additional beds in rooms and extra charges for breakfast. Here at Ashdown Park Hotel, we don't charge for children, up to the age of 14, who stay in their parents room. We'll include additional beds in the room at no extra charge and even throw in a delicious breakfast to set them on their way for the day! If that's not enough, they will also receive a complimentary children's goodie pack on arrival!

In fact, the only charges we make are for any additional meals and drinks taken. They can either choose from our children's menu (two courses with a drink for £11.00, or three courses with a drink for £14.50), or enjoy a half portion from our daily Table d’hôte menu. Meals can be taken in our two AA rosette Anderida Restaurant or, if you prefer something a little less formal, our inviting Lounges offer meals throughout the day.

Below gives you a taste of what else the children get with their stay. To find out more about what is going on in and around the hotel including local attractions in the area please visit our “What to do” pages.
