The delightful castle hotel is idyllically set in the Sussex countryside, and boasts 900 years of history. The battlements (complete with mighty portcullis; one of the few in Europe that still works) enclose the hotel. Beyond these walls are acres of stunning parkland that feature formal gardens, koi ponds and a thatched treehouse accessed by a rope bridge. Guests can enjoy the magnificent restaurant where pre-booking is essential. Named after castles in Sussex, each of the sumptuously furnished bedrooms and suites is unique in design. Luxury amenities are provided in all rooms.
