Highly recommend this for a special treat, stay in an actual castle to celebrate. Good food, service and location. Various places to explore around the castle and enjoy a drink or more around the grounds.

I agree with the others you can view and recommend a cream tea. If you are in that area The Amberley Museum is really worth a visit we only got there late in the day and wish we had more time, loads to see and do.

There is ample parking available so should not be a problem. The car park is situated approximately 100m from the hotel reception.
