Amberley Castle

Arundel, West Sussex

Superior room

A romantic Relais & Châteaux castle hotel in the South Downs, with gourmet dining and beautiful grounds – includes breakfast and three-course dinner

With 900 years of history and a 60-foot curtain wall around its 12 acres of landscaped grounds, Amberley Castle has been transformed by Andrew Brownsword from a medieval landmark into a luxe country retreat. Set within the peaceful green pastures of the South Downs National Park in West Sussex, its magical gardens play host to private tennis courts, a croquet lawn and an 18-hole putting course.  

Guarded by gleaming suits of armour, you can dine in serious style at the hotel's gourmet restaurant. Bedrooms have retained their regal vibes, with rich fabrics and a scattering of antiques. Wake up to a full English breakfast each morning, before you head out to explore the surrounding countryside, quaint English villages and nearby mansions that give the area its charm. Amberley Castle scooped a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
