After nine hundred years standing proud in the unspoilt county of West Sussex, known as “the garden of England”, this fortress with its storybook battlement towers has weathered the attacks of enemies and of time itself. Today the battles of the past have made way for an enchanted peace, but certain historic traditions remain. Every night, just before midnight, the impressive portcullis is lowered ever so silently as if to protect your slumber that little bit more. Indeed you will be sleeping in a princely suite with a four-poster bed and mullioned windows overlooking gardens full of blossoming trees. The food is also fit for a king and is served in a dining room with vaulted ceilings and decorated with tapestries and suits of armour. Take a journey back in time in this uniquely romantic setting.
