Family Fun

You and your family may well wish to spend to enjoying the hotel, grounds and our swimming pool or relax with a good book but if you prefer to get out and about, here's some ideas..

Bluebell Railway

The Bluebell Railway takes you back to a time where everything moved at more gentle pace. Enjoy an important part of England's railway heritage with a ride on the Bluebell Steam Railway through the West Sussex countryside - a lovely family day out & great for all ages.

Enjoy a little murder mystery on board a beautiful Pullman Carriage while steaming through the Sussex countryside and enjoying dinner - nostalgic & so much fun!

Ashdown Forest: visit the real Hundred Acre wood, home of Winnie the Pooh

Take a wander around the inspiration for the setting for A.A. Milne's lovable bear, many locations in the Pooh stories can be matched to real places in and around the forest. "Hundred Acre Wood", for example, was really Five Hundred Acre Wood, while Galleon's Leap was inspired by the bare hilltop of Gill's Lap.

And the game of Poohsticks was first played in the area - on a footbridge across a tributary of the River Medway in Posingford Wood. The bridge is a great spot to head to to while away sometime..

And for the real Pooh fans, pop into Pooh Corner

Promise me you'll never forget me because if I thought you would, I'd never leave
