Your magical family adventure begins at our beautiful country retreat. This is why we love Amberley Castle. Our family days here are spent enjoying picnics on the lawn, wandering the castle battlements and playing garden games. Your family become our family – everyone’s welcome.
Our passion for the simple things in life inspire us to create special family experiences.
Our beautiful gardens play host to our passionate beliefs in the simple pleasures of family, friends and fun.
Set within 12 acres, our terrace and gardens at Amberley Castle entertain outdoor playfulness and picnics. Our grounds open up nature hunts with exciting finds and new discoveries and there are walks a plenty in the local area.
Play tennis and croquet to your heart's content and you could even take on the 18-hole putting course.
Our Garden Menu for our V.I.L.P (very important little people) is available all day every day. Children are welcome in the restaurant until 8.00pm, with last orders being placed by 7.00pm.
Our V.I.L.P can have their own special picnic hamper whenever they choose. We do “grown-up” picnic hampers too so the whole family can enjoy the experience together in our beautiful outdoor spaces, in private areas within our hotel or in the comfort of your own room. All we ask is that you pre-order any hampers with a member of our team.
Our comfortable rooms and suites ensure everyone has a good night’s sleep. Choose from interconnecting spaces, twin beds and living rooms with sofa beds.
Two of our rooms interconnect with each other offering an additional single bedroom. Together these rooms can sleep 5 guests with space for a cot for your little one, if needed.
For children under the age of 12, Luffa and Wilfred (Deluxe Rooms) have space for two Z beds and Lewes (Premier Deluxe Room) has a sofa bed.
We want your stay to be as relaxing and fun as possible and with that comes less packing. We have much of the essentials here ready for you.
Situated across the beautiful countryside of Arundel and overlooking the River Arun, Arundel Castle was built at the end of the 11th century by Roger de Montgomery, Earl of Arundel. With old existing features, such as the motte, dry moat and gatehouse, history really comes alive here.
Just a few moments from us there is a lot to explore, from railways and bus services (which freely carry you around the site) to printing workshops and much more. The museum is dedicated to the industrial heritage of the South East but is also home to traditional crafts people.
Discover attractions such as the Brighton Pier, the Royal Pavilion and the brand new British Airways i360. The city is also home to a cornucopia of cultural delights as well as big name shops and hundreds of independent boutiques. There are many award-winning restaurants catering for all tastes.

Take a free guided boat safari to glimpse a rare water vole or see vividly coloured kingfishers. Hand feed our collection of birds, including the nene, one of the world's rarest water birds.
Running through Surrey and West Sussex in Southern England, this rural waterway is recognised as a national heritage asset, as well as providing a haven for wildlife. Trip boats with up to 50 seats run cruises on the idyllic Loxwood section of the canal.
