Explore the Gardens

Amberley Castle is a beautiful, historic building with acres of glorious landscaped gardens, hidden behind the castle walls and a magnificent portcullis.

With over 12 acres, many visitors simply wish to wander through the beautiful formal gardens contained within the Castle walls. The medieval stonework, rose-covered arches and topiary, dating from the 1920’s, form an evocative backdrop to the colour and fragrance within the perennial borders. The upper courtyard provides a delightful setting for afternoon tea or aperitifs. Camelias and magnolias grow proudly here and koi carp bask in the charming ponds.

Mistletoe Lodge - Our Tree House

This gorgeous tree house nestled amongst the beautiful poplar trees by the Castle’s main entrance is an architectural wonder. Reached by a rope bridge, this luxury hideaway affords stunning views of the grounds and lakes.

Blending into the backdrop of the gardens, guests can enjoy the serenity and be enchanted by the beauty and tranquility of the atmosphere that Mistletoe Lodge has to offer guests.

It is possible to hire Mistletoe Lodge for dinner, lunch or a civil wedding ceremony between May and September, (weather permitting) and Amberley Castle's florist can deck the interior to meet your bespoke requirements. This intimate space has a luxurious interior with a window seat, comfortable armchairs and soft furnishings.

18-Hole Putting Course

In recognition of the Castle's 900th anniversary in 2003, a professional standard 18-hole putting course was developed within the extensive grounds. One of only two such courses in England, it has been designed and implemented by noted golf course architect, Weller Design.

The course is open for Castle residents, offering guests the opportunity to sharpen up their 'green' play, or enjoy a tranquil stroll. With an impressive water cascade and two lakes, it is a quiet haven in which to watch wildlife, or sit and relax in one of three gazebos, each boasting superb views to the South Downs or across the course to the Castle.
