There is only one 900 year old castle in the lee of the beautiful Sussex South Downs which is an award-winning country house hotel. Amberley Castle offers peace and tranquillity in a delightful and historical setting, yet is easily accessible from London and the M25. The impressive driveway, bordered by two lakes, rises to the magnificent gatehouse before crossing the bridge over the grassy moat. The portcullis is lowered each night ensuring total privacy within the castle's 60ft walls.
Many of the 19 luxurious individually designed bedrooms boast four-posters, whilst each has an en suite jacuzzi bathroom. The Bishopric, created from two 17th century buildings within the dry moat, now offers a choice of five suites, all with private lounges. The Queens Room, a handsome barrel-vaulted room, is so named for its 17th century mural depicting King Charles II and his queen, Catherine of Braganza, who visited Amberley Castle in the early 1680s. It is the perfect setting for Castle Cuisine which reflects historical recipes and local ingredients in a contemporary style. To complement the excellent food, the Castle's wine list is both extensive and interesting.
With close proximity to the famous houses of Goodwood, Petworth and Parham; Chichester, with its elegant shops and internationally-renowned theatre, and Brighton, a haunt of antique-lovers, Amberley Castle is the perfect base for a memorable seasonal break.
