Gravetye Manor is a beautiful Elizabethan mansion, built in 1598 and enjoying a tranquil setting. One of the first country house hotels in Britain, it remains an excellent example of its type. Bedrooms and bathrooms have been sympathetically appointed with style and luxurious finishing touches. The day rooms, each with oak-panelling, fresh flower arrangements and open fires, create a relaxing atmosphere. Guests should take time to explore the impressive gardens and grounds; a perfect spot for afternoon tea. 2018 sees the re-opening of the restaurant, designed with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the garden. The excellent, seasonal, award-winning cuisine based on ingredients from the kitchen garden and local suppliers and producers should not be missed.
