OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Park House Hotel & Spa sits in a rural location outside the market town of Midhurst, overlooking the South Downs. It's handily close to Goodwood's golf courses and motor and horseracing events, and to Cowdray Estate for polo, clay pigeon shooting and the like. Pretty Petworth, with its antique galleries and National Trust house, is also within range, or discover a 300-foot Edwardian Pergola, Victorian glasshouses and an arboretum at West Dean Gardens.

By car: Just seven minutes' drive from Midhurst, the hotel can be easily reached via the A3 from London and Portsmouth. Chichester is under 30 mins away and Brighton 1 hour 20 mins. Free parking.

By train: Petersfield station is a 20-minute drive from the hotel. Southwestern Rail services run between Portsmouth Harbour, Portsmouth & Southsea and London Waterloo. Book trains to Petersfield.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The décor is, for the most part, English country house traditional, bordering on chintzy. Expect soft furnishings in safe cream, pastels and florals and corridors with landscape paintings. The spa, in a separate modern building, is a more contemporary space with marble and mother of pearl detail around the indoor pool.

THE FACILITIES

The spa incorporates a large indoor pool and a smaller heated outdoor pool (open April to September) with a terrace and a bar serving drinks and snacks. You can get sporty in the gym or on the tennis courts, croquet lawn, putting or bowling greens or six-hole golf course. Though we'd done little but relax, good service in the restaurant coaxed us to indulge.
