As befits one of the finest country house hotels in Sussex, all the rooms and suites are named after species of trees found in the surrounding forest. But it’s more than just their individual names that make each room and suite special.
Behind every door no two rooms or suites are alike. Each one has been decorated and furnished to offer the heights of luxury and their individual characteristics have been enhanced with period pieces and furnishings. The choice of accommodation is outstanding with eight categories for you to choose from to appeal to different tastes and budgets.
They range from beautifully decorated and appointed individual rooms to magnificent Master Suites, some of which include four-poster beds, whirlpool baths and some of the most beautiful views of Ashdown forest.
Dining at Ashdown Park is a rich and rewarding experience, whether you’re a lover of award winning gourmet cuisine or prefer something more traditional served in a relaxed bistro setting.
