Why Stay At Park House Hotel
Surrounded by manicured gardens and bordering South Downs National Park in West Sussex, Park House Hotel offers luxury in a pristine rural setting.
With the welcoming air of a gracious English country home, the 21-room Park House Hotel is intimate in scale with surprisingly large guest rooms outfitted with upholstered furniture in tasteful neutrals, unfussy toiles, and florals. Accommodations run the gamut from double rooms in the main house to a six-bedroom cottage with its own private garden. For those seeking relaxation, the spa menu includes 26 different treatments from the simple facial to the Chocolate Sensation massage. There are two grass tennis courts, a six-hole golf course, croquet or bowling lawns, and a heated outdoor pool. The Brighton seaside is an hour away.
Ask the concierge for a walking trail map of South Downs National Park, adjacent to the hotel for paths of varying lengths and levels of difficulty.
Enjoy an English tradition with a twist: champagne afternoon tea at the spa, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. for tea, a glass of bubbly, sweet treats, and a 30-minute facial ($90 per person).
Arrive at London Gatwick International Airport (LGW) which is approximately 40 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 60 minutes of travel time.Midhurst, Bepton, West Sussex, United Kingdom
