Celebrate in the heart of the Ashdown Forest this Christmas

As the enchanting festive season draws near, a magical transformation graces Ashdown Park Hotel. Just as the winter’s gentle chill weaves its way through the landscape, this beloved hotel transforms into a warm and captivating haven, setting the stage for a Christmas experience beyond compare.


Nestled amidst the picturesque East Sussex countryside, Ashdown Park Hotel boasts a rich history that traces its origins back to the 19th century. Initially constructed as a family home, the resplendent mansion has remained a cherished part of the local community for generations. Over the years, it has evolved into a luxurious country estate, renowned for its unwavering commitment to hospitality, timeless elegance, and the creation of indelible memories.

Each passing year brings forth a wondrous spectacle as the holiday season approaches. Halls are festooned with the vibrant boughs of holly, and the alluring fragrance of freshly baked gingerbread dances through the air. Glistening lights bedeck the magnificent Christmas tree in our lobby, casting an inviting glow that beckons guests with open arms. It’s a scene plucked from the pages of a storybook, a place where holiday dreams come alive.

But our dedication to crafting a festive wonderland transcends mere decorations. Our team of gifted chefs toil tirelessly to conjure a sumptuous Christmas feast that is sure to tantalise your taste buds. From the traditional roast turkey with all the trimmings to decadent desserts that could even make Santa’s mouth water, every bite is a jubilant celebration of the season.

Yet it is not solely about the culinary delights and the resplendent décor. At Ashdown Park Hotel, we hold a deep belief in the power of community, and during the holiday season, we labour to nurture a sense of togetherness. Be serenaded by carolers as you sip mulled wine by the roaring fire, or partake in our festive events that unite families, friends, and even strangers in a tapestry of warmth and camaraderie that permeates every nook and cranny of our establishment.
