Certificate of Excellence
Horsted Place is situated on the A26 just south of Uckfield and within 15 minutes drive of Glyndebourne. Originally a private family house, it is now a luxury country house hotel with AA red stars set in landscaped gardens with extensive views towards the South Downs. A grade II listed Victorian gothic mansion, it has original architectural features designed by Pugin and historical links to the British Royal Family. The fine dining, AA 2-rosetted restaurant offers modern English cuisine with freshly prepared seasonal local ingredients whenever possible. Afternoon teas (served on the Terrace in summer or in front of the Drawing Room fires in winter)are extremely popular. There is a croquet lawn and hard tennis court and guests also have use of the spa and leisure facilities at the East Sussex National, 2 minutes away by car.

My lovely friend treated me to Afternoon tea at the hotel. The whole afternoon was so relaxing and enjoyable and the food delicious. However the only criticism we both had was we would like there to have been more savoury and a little less sweet.More

Check in is at 2.00pm. Check out is at 11am. The Hotel will pre-book a taxi as there is no public transport nearby and they are not near a main road.
