Venue Profile: Ashdown Park, Sussex

Maria recently visited Ashdown Park in Sussex, read more about this venue below:


Set in the Ashdown Forest, Ashdown Park Hotel is a beautiful country house hotel in East Sussex, with fantastic event spaces, a spa and a golf course. It is the perfect setting for meetings, conferences, celebrations and team building events.


The venue is situated in Ashdown Forest and is surrounded by countryside. It was easy to find, accessed via the M25 and M23. There is plenty of free parking on-site and valet parking is also available.East Grinstead Rail Station is just a 10 minute drive away and Gatwick Airport can be reached within 20 minutes.

First Impressions

The drive in is lovely, surrounded by trees and parkland. There is a concierge standing out the front of the hotel to greet guests and assist with luggage. The building itself is very traditional, being a 19th century mansion. You can also see a Llama Farm from the garden of the hotel.

Event Space and Facilities

There are 17 meeting and event spaces, all historically named after lords, ladys, priests, architects and other significant people who are an important part of Ashdown Park’s history. The venue can accommodate up tp 200 people for a reception, 170 for a conference, as well as smaller meetings and training whether it be 10 or 40 people.

The Harry Clarke room was our favourite space – a large spectacular converted chapel room with high ceilings and stained glass windows. This room would be perfect for large conferences, awards dinners and celebrations. This room forms part of the Richard Towneley Suite which is available for exclusive use, and includes another large room and syndicate rooms as well as a bar, cloakrooms and reception area.

The venue caters equally well for smaller meetings and private dining events with a number of rooms available, each beautifully decorated and with their own character. Private dinners and meetings can also be arranged outside in the gardens.

There are over 100 bedrooms, rooms are all of a traditional style in the main house while those in the country club are more modern.

The hotel is situated on a 186 acre estate so there is plenty of space for team building and outdoor events. The 18-hole par 3 golf course is particularly impressive and would be an ideal addition to a corporate event.

There’s also a luxury spa just a short walk from the main house which includes a swimming pool, sauna, steam room, whirlpool spa, treatment rooms, a gym and tennis courts.

Food and Service

We enjoyed dinner, lunch and breakfast and all were fantastic. Al fresco dining is available in the beautiful grounds including BBQs and picnics. There are also plenty of refreshments and snacks available throughout the day.
