Set at the heart of the Ashdown Forest in East Sussex, Ashdown Park Hotel and Country Club is the epitome of a classic British country house hotel.
The stunning neo-gothic hotel, nestled in 186 acres of landscaped countryside and woodlands teaming with wildlife, is the perfect place to relax, unwind and escape the every day.
Each of Ashdown Park’s 106 bedrooms is individually styled with beautiful views of the grounds and, in keeping with the hotel’s countryside setting, suites are named after different types of tree found in the surrounding forest.
Along with luxurious accommodation, Ashdown Park offers superb leisure facilities including an 18-hole, par
3 golf course, fully equipped gym and indoor swimming pool, spa and treatment rooms, tennis courts and croquet lawns.
The hotel’s award-winning Anderida Restaurant offers fine dining cuisine with menus designed by Executive
Head Chef Andrew Wilson, putting a creative twist
on established classic dishes. For a true Anderida experience, try the eight-course tasting menu featuring the very best local produce, presented in impeccable style.
Ashdown Forest itself was the inspiration behind Winnie the Pooh’s Hundred Acre Wood; visiting families can explore the forest and find spots made famous in the tales, including the footbridge made famous as ‘Pooh Bridge’ where you can play your own game of Pooh Sticks.
Wildlife-lovers will be wowed by Ashdown Park – originally a deer-hunting forest in Norman times, the forest is at the centre of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the heathland and ancient woodland provide two very different habitats for wildlife to thrive.
