Once a 19th century country manor, with all the Neo-Jacobean accents you’d expect, the property has transcended into five-star luxury and is now the multiple awardwinning South Lodge hotel. This is largely thanks to its incredible spa (with not one, but two outdoor pools and a spa of the year accolade) and fine dining restaurant Ben Wilkinson at The Pass which has landed 4 AA Rosettes and a Michelin star.

There are 88 rooms each with their own unique personality and look that have been individually designed and furnished – from rooms that honour British tradition and views over the terraced gardens onwards to the South Downs to garden suites with their very own hot tubs to relax in whilst surrounded by the sounds of nature.

When it comes to food, The Camellia offers traditional British dining in an elegant setting while the main event is the seven-course tasting menu at The Pass from head chef Ben Wilkinson – a beautifully unique experience where you sit in the heart of things, seeing the chefs in action who deliver each dish to you and explain all of the delicious elements. Over at the (simply stunning) spa, you can dine at Botanica restaurant, with a terrace complete with views overlooking the pools and countryside beyond, the menu has a plethora of plant based dishes, is completely diary free and prides itself on being sustainable with zero waste.

Life is all about balance after all and you can walk off the calories on a stroll around the 93 acres of Sussex countryside including woodlands, manicured gardens and the hotel’s kitchen gardens filled with fruit and veg, or enjoy a game of tennis or croquet on the lawn. Wild swimmers can lap up the luxury in the natural outdoor pool and enjoy a refreshing dip before taking advantage of the al fresco hydrotherapy pool.

There’s also an indoor pool, infused sauna, marble-lined salt steam and jasmine herbal steam room and state-of-the-art gym and fitness classes and 14 treatments rooms. They have also launched a line of all natural treatments with British skincare brand Pelegrims using grape extracts from the hotel’s vineyard. New for this year is the Nature Immersion spa experiences centred around Shinrin-Yoku, the Japanese awareness meditation featuring forest bathing to help with anxiety, depression, fear, and tension.

Looking for the venue of dreams for your wedding? Nature will be the backdrop to your big day in South Lodge’s surroundings with the option to marry at the outdoor wedding pavilion in the summer with panoramic views of the Downs. During cooler climes you can enjoy candlelit ceremonies and roaring log fires. How’s that for romantic?

For corporate days, events, meetings, conferences with that extra level of professionalism and luxury you’ll can book one of the specifically designed meeting rooms which do everything you need them to, and more. While you focus on business there will be service with a smile as well as great food, impressive views and just an hour’s drive from London.

Coming this summer, is The Reeds, a collection of eight lakeside lodges. six with two bedrooms, and two one-bed spa lodges with infrared halo therapy saunas. All will have open plan living space, double height ceilings, what’s more, each property has its own outdoor whirlpool bath with views across the lake and beyond – wow! It’s luxury every well-heeled step of the way here!
