If you like historic retreats which ooze class and elegance, you’re going to love the glorious Ashdown Park Hotel. Tucked away amid some stunning Sussex countryside, it’s the ideal spot for luxurious days and stays that you’ll never want to forget. Here you’ll find high end indulgence everywhere you look.
With the fabled and fabulous Ashdown Forest right on the doorstep, long walks in the countryside are a must. The pretty market town of East Grinstead is close by, offering a range of stores and coffee shops. The iconic seaside resorts of Hastings, Eastbourne and Brighton are all within easy reach as well.
Overnight journeys of bliss can be enjoyed here, thanks to over a hundred supremely comfortable bedrooms. There’s a fabulous spa, where time seems to stand still amid the seven gorgeous treatment rooms, and a fully-equipped gym for the more active visitor. Outside, there’s a golf course to enjoy, and when it’s time to dine you’ll adore the rightly celebrated and pleasingly sophisticated Anderida Restaurant.

Away from the gym, you can savour a round of golf or a game of tennis as well. And when you’re ready to unwind afterwards, head to the whirlpool spa to recover your equilibrium.
Elegant and sophisticated dining is standard at the Ashdown Park Hotel, thanks to the Anderida Restaurant, an award-winning eatery that has an excellent reputation. If you’re a discerning foodie, you will adore this place.
As well as world class eating, you will also be impressed by the extensive wine list. You can also enjoy excellent bistro-style cuisine in the Fairways Lounge, which serves meals and snacks accompanied by stunning views of the golf course.
Very enjoyable and relaxing weekend break in luxurious surroundings. The spa was clean, treatments prompt and attentive. We had an enjoyable swim in the newly refurbished pool, pre booked prior to arrival.
We arrived the day after the covid lockdown was lifted and the service, food, the presentation of the hotel was faultless.

A lovely afternoon
Went with a friend and we had a really pleasant afternoon with nice treatments and an excellent tea. Tea was taken in the main hotel which was lovely and relaxing although it was a bit tricky walking round in the dark as the weather was horrendous and the lighting wasn't good between the Spa building and the hotel. Overall, we had a nice relaxing afternoon and would recommend the package with 50 minute treatment of your choice and afternoon tea.

Relaxing and rejuvenating
Brilliant. Ashdown Hotel and spa is beautiful and the staff are all really lovely. Treatments food and everything top end. Definitely would live to visit again.

My wife and I each opted for an aromatherapy full body massage which was most relaxing for both of us. Despite a misunderstanding on booking (mostly my fault) the treatments were allocated to us accurately. The booking team were attentive and helpful when I explained what had happened.
My wife's massage focussed on areas of tension whilst mine was more general and in both cases most enjoyable. We both opted for a lavender oil which is for general relaxation.
The facilities were spotlessly clean and welcoming - like the rest of this fantastic hotel. A beautiful setting.
We loved the experience and are looking to repeat it.
Like best - me: how the masseuse made me feel at ease in what I had imagined might be an awkward context
Like best - my wife: the skill of the masseuse in locating tension
Like least - me: the "mood music"
Like least - my wife: people sitting around in bath robes...

Half Day Spa Treat
I booked the spa half day including lunch as a surprise for my husband (it was his 65th birthday at the end of January). The whole experience was a delight, with extremely helpful and friendly staff. my husband thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, the full body massage was very relaxing and we used all the facilities (with the exception of the gym, those days are past :-)
The lunch which we selected was served on time and was of a very high standard, the full relaxing experience was rounded off with a couple of gin and tonics in the bar. A very pleasant morning which we both enjoyed. Only one minor thing, we could not share the steam room and sauna as they were in the changing rooms for each gender, but this did not distract from the overall experience.
