Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


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.

Loved our stay, the staff are amazing, the rooms and lounges very comfortable. We had dinner on two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our choices. We also had a cream tea and over the years we have had a few and this one was definitely the best we’ve had. I could not recommend the hotel higher, it was all nicely done but the cherry on the cake was definitely the friendly staff.

Alcohol is fairly pricey, but understandably given the location. Rooms included a tea tray and waters for free which was great.

Cost of drinks inc wine expensive. This makes you less inclined to buy more drinks in the bar.
