Hammerwood Park, Hammerwood, East Grinstead, West Sussex RH19 3QE, UK
From £90 per room per night
Hammerwood Park probably has one of the largest b&b bedrooms in Europe and is a palatial place to stay.
It is only 25 minutes for Gatwick airport and just 3½ miles east of East Grinstead. The house was built in 1792 by Benjamin Henry Latrobe (1764 – 1820), architect of the White House and US Capitol Building in Washington D.C., and many others (including Ashdown House, near Forest Row).
Today, as well as providing a venue for concerts and filming, the house and gardens are open to the public from 1 June to the end of September on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Bank Holiday Mondays, with a tour at 2:05 p.m. For more information please visit the website.
The guest bedrooms at Hammerwood Park include The Victorian bedroom which is huge with an antique four post bed, and a Victorian bathroom which has been fitted with a good shower. There is also the North Wing bedroom which is still quite large but cosy and with an annex for a third person if required.
Guests have full enjoyment of the parkland and the wonderful walks in the area.
£120 for one night
£110 per night for two nights
