Goodwood Hotel, Chichester
A quintessentially British residence with copious amounts of character and charisma set to the beautiful backdrop of 11,000 acres of woodland and did we mention, it’s won multiple awards too?
The name Goodwood may be synonymous with racing events and vintage festivals, but the hotel set in stunning surroundings by the South Downs, has established its own identity within the 300-year old estate and that’s one of prestige, elegance and more recently, sustainability. It’s an ideal choice for families (plus dogs), weekend breaks, corporate hosting and anyone craving something beautifully British.
The Goodwood Hotel’s trophy cabinet boats an impressive selection of silverware, including most sustainable business, best restaurant for their flagship eatery, Farmer, Butcher, Chef and has been named one of the UK’s top hotels in The Times and The Sunday Times Best Places to Stay guide. Impressive, right?
The modern-wing rooms have a neutral colour palette, think relaxing sage and calming browns with pops of personality thanks to red leather upholstery. All the essentials for your comfort are in place and by that we mean REN toiletries, fluffy towels, quality duvets and throws plus robe and slippers. All 91 rooms are spacious with plenty of seating and selected rooms open out onto the lawn.
The estate offers everything to reboot or revive you, the hotel’s tranquil spa is just the start of things… there are walking and cycling trails taking you through the estate’s forest, having recently planted 78,000 new trees there will be canopy upon canopy to navigate through. You could choose to take to the motor circuit and do some laps on two wheels or four. Muddy believes it’s the perfect family escape because of the amount of land to explore and activities on offer including foraging, off-road driving experiences, flying lessons, golf and so much more.
Produce for all three of the hotel’s restaurants is provided by the Goodwood Home Farm that is dedicated to farm-to-fork dining using organic and local produce. Under executive chef, Alan White, whose resume includes The Grand, Brighton, the menus reflect the very best of British dishes with the focus on style and sustainability.
