Welcoming hospitality and service, sumptuous festive fayre, twinkling decorations and a friendly atmosphere make Ashdown Park a festive venue enjoyed by the whole family. 

Our three- or four-night Christmas House Party commences on either the 23rd or 24th December providing a complete festive experience from the moment you arrive, with first class service matched by a real sense of festive fun. The 2024 Festive Season promises to be one to remember.


Arrive at your leisure, check into your luxurious accommodation and the afternoon is yours to explore the 186 acres of ground or maybe enjoy a relaxing afternoon in the Country Club & Spa, where a wide selection of treatments are available. (Pre-booking is essential) 

A delightful dinner is served in the festive setting of the Anderida Restaurant which can be followed by a night-cap in the Cocktail Bar or cosy drawing rooms with a warm glow from the open log fires. 


The day starts with a hearty breakfast for those who joined us on the 23rd, followed by a morning at leisure or maybe a trip to the historical town of Tunbridge Wells for those last minute gifts.  

Afternoon Tea will be served in the elegant drawing rooms giving you the opportunity to catch up with friends, family and loved ones.

The evening begins with a Champagne and Canape Reception in the lounges, accompanied by our Carol Singers in the Front Hall spreading the traditional Christmas cheer and festive good tiding to all.

Dinner will be served in the Anderida Restaurant, followed by a televised Midnight Mass with hot toddies and mince pies. Alternatively, Midnight Mass at Holy Trinity Church in Forest Row is available for those who wish to attend.


After waking early to the excitement of finding out what Santa has delivered, take a leisurely breakfast then enjoy a traditional Christmas Day with crisp walks through the woods, reading on the sofa or maybe a family board game by the fire. Whatever it is you do, tea, coffee, mulled wine and mince pies are available in the Lounges throughout the day.

Lunch, a lavish festive buffet, is available from mid-day in the elegant Richard Towneley Suite, our magnificent early 20th century chapel built by the Order of Notre Dame and adorned with some of the finest examples of Harry Clark stained glass windows. Our jazz trio play throughout to add a little extra Christmas Spirit. 

For those wanting to walk off lunch, try our estate Treasure Hunt, perfect for exploring the grounds and earning prizes. Alternatively, take a little peace and quiet in the comfort of your own room or maybe relax in the lounge with tea and Christmas Cake where the Kings Christmas message will be shown.  

The festivities of the day culminate with Champagne and canapés in the drawing rooms before enjoying a delectable four-course Christmas dinner in the Anderida Restaurant.

Extend the merriment into the night by joining friends, both new and old, for lighthearted games in the lounge. It's the perfect way to end a day filled with joy and festive cheer!


After breakfast, gather with us for a day of cherished family moments, where a variety of Country Pursuits await on the lawns. Clay Pigeon shooting, Archery and Falconry displays are available throughout the morning, there’s something for everyone. Alternatively, unwind with a rejuvenating walk on the estate and wider Ashdown Forest, or visit to the Country Club for a gentle swim.

Lunch will once again be a sumptuous buffet served in the Richard Towneley Suite. 

In the afternoon, put your knowledge to the test with our 'General Manager’s Quiz,' featuring questions suitable for all ages. Afterwards, enjoy tea and hot crumpets served in the lounges. 

As evening falls, savour Champagne and canapés in the drawing rooms and Cocktail Bar before a gourmet feast in the Anderida Restaurant.

Finish off the day with excitement at our Casino in the Cocktail Bar and Snooker Room, accompanied by live Jazz. It's the perfect conclusion to our Festive House Party, ensuring lasting memories of holiday joy.


Following a hearty breakfast in the Anderida Restaurant, we bid you a fond farewell. Alternatively stay another night or two, you are very welcome to extend your visit.
