Everything is on your doorstep, from a restaurant, cafés and shops to a dog collar museum, falconry centre and Go Ape Tree Top climbing facility.

It's hard to compete with what's been dubbed "the world's loveliest castle" but care and attention are given to every aspect of the bedrooms and public spaces here, be it fur throws provided in the glamping pavilions, pretty botanical prints in the bathrooms or stable windows thrown upon to scented spring gardens.


There's no faulting the friendly, enthusiastic and courteous reception here, from our cheery punting guide and the studious volunteers in the Castle rooms to the attentive restaurant waiting staff. Facilities, too numerous to list here, include shops, cafés, adventure playgrounds, Segway tours and an open-air cinema.

Breakfast and dinner are served in the aptly-named Castle View Restaurant, a towering oak-beamed and timber-framed barn dating to the 17th century. Menus are staunchly British, championing local produce with dishes like Sussex game terrine with plum chutney and creamy risotto made with vegetables grown on the castle estate.

Castle View Restaurant: Available for lunch and dinner, booking required. From 6.30pm the menu changes and the restaurant takes on a more intimate tone. Mains range from £15.95 to £26.95.
