Amberley Castle - 900 years of history to enjoy Afternoon Tea or a meal in

 

Nestled in the heart of the Sussex Downs is the most beautiful hotel that's absolutely steeped in history!

Amberley Castle became a hotel in 1989 - but it's actually 900 years old!  The land where Amberley Castle stands was gifted to Bishop Wilfrid in 683AD by Caedewalla, the King of Wessex.  The current buildings originally were a timber-framed hunting lodge;  that was built in 1103 by Bishop Luffa, so there's been quite a transformation since then, to a fortified manor house under the supevision of several bishops who were resident.

Amberley Castle is steeped in history
Queen Elizabeth II stayed there in 1945;  she was Princess Elizabeth at the time.

King Charles II visited Amberley twice; the castle was a royalist stronghold during the Civil War.  Today, it’s full of interesting historical items, such as antiques and fine fabrics and it retains many of its original features.

In the gardens (there are 12 acres of them), camellias and magnolias will delight; Koi carp swim in the ponds and you may spot the resident peacock.
