Located in the picturesque village of Amberley in the beautiful West Sussex countryside, Amberley Castle is a unique luxury hotel steeped in over 900 years of history. Within its medieval walls lies a picturesque retreat which seamlessly blends ancient architecture and history with modern design and contemporary cuisine, cooked to the highest standards.
Amberley Castle is located less than 60 miles south west of London and only 22 miles from Brighton in the village of Amberley.
The castle is still completely enclosed by a 60ft high curtain wall which is flanked by a magnificent twin-tower gatehouse to the south and a kitchen block and a garderode tower with gun loops to the north. Square internal towers stand at the corners, with a small water-gate in the west wall and a Norman postern in the east wall.
The 19 luxurious guest rooms offer comfort and style, the interior design reflects the history of the castle and rooms are furnished with antiques and fine fabrics alongside contemporary features.
Amberley Castle has a long held reputation for delivering outstanding cuisine.
The magnificent Queen's Room is the principal dining room, with a barrel-vaulted ceiling dating back to the 12th century and an open fire lights the room during the winter months.
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.
Amberley Castle is part of Andrew Brownsword Hotels.
Comprised of thirteen properties in countryside settings and city centre locations, the collection is owned by Christina and Andrew Brownsword CBE DL who strive to create very special places that truly embody their own ethos of great hospitality.
