Records have traced ownership of the estate of Alexander House back to 1332. The oldest part of the present building faces the south lawn, and was formerly a farmhouse built in the 17th century which during this period became the home of the family of Percy Bysshe Shelley.
Furnished and decorated throughout with lavish and tasteful care, the house today presents an idyll of English country house living which has established Alexander House as one of England's most exclusive hotels. All guest rooms are individually furnished and appointed to the highest standard, and include six luxury suites, most notably the Goodwood which houses a magnificent four poster bed reputedly the gift of Napoleon to Marshal Kleber. All enjoy panoramic views of the hotel's superb surroundings. The elegant South Drawing Room also overlooks the lawn and rose gardens, and is a delightful setting for an aperitif before experiencing the classic cuisine and extensive wine list of Alexander's Restaurant, the winner of both consistent acclaim and numerous awards for quality over the years. Afternoon tea is enjoyed in the oak panelled Library, warmed by an open fire in cooler months.
Set in 135 acres of magnificent private gardens and parkland, outdoor leisure facilities include tennis courts and croquet, with clay shooting, golf, riding, and fishing locally available. A resident beauty therapist is also on hand to ensure total relaxation during your visit.
