Ghyll Manor Hotel & Restaurant is a converted 17th-century timber-framed manor house in Rusper, a small village in West Sussex. It's set in over 40 acres of gardens with a private lake, a terrace with a dais and an old amphitheatre. Inside, vintage and contemporary features include original beams and modern furniture.

Guests can have drinks and afternoon tea in the conservatory or the Terrace Room, which has a large patio overlooking the gardens. The hotel restaurant serves classic dishes such as house smoked mackerel croquettes, seabass en papillote and banana tart tatin.

There are 29 rooms, all with free Wi-Fi. Standard and Superior Rooms are in the modern Stable Mews in the grounds

Rusper, in the district of Horsham, has a village shop, a park, public tennis courts and two pubs. There are many walking routes nearby, including the 150-mile Sussex Border Path, which runs along Rusper High Street. Nutbourne Vineyards, Arundel Castle and Wakehurst are all within 40 minutes' drive of the hotel. Wakehurst is owned by the National Trust but managed by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew; it's home to a wild botanic garden and a Grade I-listed Elizabethan manor house.

Brighton, with its famous shopping area The Lanes, the Royal Pavilion and Victorian seafront, is around 40 minutes' drive away, and the cathedral city of Chichester is within an hour's drive.

Note: the hotel is eight miles from Gatwick Airport, so there might be some aircraft noise.

Excellent hotel in lovely location. Friendly staff and great service. On edge of small rural village with local pubs and plenty of walking opportunities. The room was comfortable and clean and the complex is set in lovely surroundings. Food and service was pleasant although the buffet breakfast was a little lacking in variety. Would highly recommend and will definitely return to this great hotel.
