Overview

Set on a 312-acre estate roamed by fallow deer, Buxted Park Hotel offers an upscale country house-style stay in rural East Sussex. This 4-AA-Red-Star lodging occupies a striking Palladian mansion dating from the 18th century, and has hosted suitably grand guests including William Wordsworth, Winston Churchill and Marlon Brando.

Glyndebourne, the renowned opera house, is a 20-minute drive away, while National Trust property Wakehurst Place -- an Elizabethan manor with ornamental gardens -- and Anne Boleyn's childhood home Hever Castle, are within 35 minutes' drive. The hilltop town of Rye, "often described as England's quaintest town… a little nugget of the past" (Lonely Planet), takes an hour to reach by car.

Ornate columns, intricate plasterwork and a gilt coat-of-arms decorate Buxted Park Hotel's grand lobby lounge. Guests can relax with coffee, cocktails and afternoon tea by the fireplace in the bar, which features high ceilings, chandeliers and floor-length windows, and dine in the 2-AA-Rosette restaurant. There's also a terrace overlooking the grounds.

Bedrooms are decorated in elegant style and have free Wi-Fi. Higher room categories have living space, DVD players and views of the grounds, while lavish suites with period accents include details such as coffee machines, fireplaces and 4-poster beds. Some bedrooms are in a garden wing.
