Heights of Luxury in the Heart of East Sussex
Surrounded by the 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.
Perfect for Every Occasion
We’re also within easy reach of Glyndebourne, perfect for music lovers. We’re just as popular with dog lovers as a dog friendly hotel we have special rooms set aside for guests with four legged friends. 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 grounds have surely the best mountain bike trails of any country house hotel in Sussex while Ashdown Forest itself has one of the most picturesque cycle routes the county has to offer. Whether you're joining us as a hotel guest or for a spa day you can truly indulge yourself at the Country Club; if you’re more active there’s an indoor swimming pool and gymnasium.
Fresh Air Aplenty
There are also tennis courts, a practice putting green, croquet lawns and jogging trails through the beautiful grounds and woodlands. 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 is that you’ll certainly stumble across our herds of wild deer that are free to roam across the estate and grounds.
Our 186-acre estate boasts open fields, perfect for exciting and alternative team building activities to get you and your colleagues away from the mundane. Try your hand at ‘It’s a Knock-out’, quad biking, archery or falconry as just a few examples! With 106 bedrooms and space for up to 170 delegates theatre-style, we can facilitate your conference, meeting and event requirements too; one venue for an all inspiring experience.
