Hikers will adore its position, close to the famous forests that inspired AA Milne’s famous book, 100 Acre Wood, and keen riders can tack up and explore the tracks and heaths on horseback. After an exhausting day of activities enjoy an elaborate tasting menu in the candle-lit Anderida Restaurant before retreating to your lavish room."

After an exciting day’s hacking check out the hotel’s award-winning champagne list!"
"In the heart of the Ashdown Forest this neo-Gothic mansion has rolling lawns that dip into a fairytale lake. There’s a plethora of period rooms and suites including a converted chapel with stained glass windows and a real secret garden. But for the ultimate romantic ceremony there’s the summer house overlooking the lake."
"Fans of Winnie the Pooh may feel they know the sprawling grounds and woodland that surrounds Ashdown Park Hotel in rural Sussex. According to author AA Milne, the forest was the inspiration for his creation the 100 Acre Wood and it’s not hard to see why. The 6,400 acres of ancient woodland at your disposal is criss-crossed by footpaths and bridleways edged by spotless lawns, with lakes, secret gardens and woodland trails you’d expect Eeyore to inhabit. Follow the wildlife trails through the estate (you may stumble across the herds of wild deer that call Ashdown home) or go mountain biking along the hotel’s own bike paths. But don’t forget to make it back for afternoon tea – for some honey sandwiches perhaps?"
"Having just won an award for ‘Best Champagne List’, Ashdown Park is the perfect country escape for bubbly-loving ladies. Located within the heart of Ashdown Forest, the historic hotel boasts stone arches, elegant balconies and roaring log fires. After a girly afternoon in the spa, indulge in Anderida Restaurant’s 8 course tasting menu – now you couldn’t get away with that on a date could you!"
"Close to Ashdown Forest, the inspiration for AA Milne’s 100 Acre Wood, the staff at this rather lovely hotel make all Christopher Robins very welcome. There’s a special Winnie the Pooh tea if you’re staying there (honey sandwiches, Kanga cupcakes and Owl’s popcorn) and the swish Anderida restaurant will do half portions for younger guests. Ask for the children’s map to local Winnie the Pooh attractions at reception. If you’ve time before dinner, go for a stroll in the 644 acres of ancient woodland criss-crossed with footpaths and bridleways across secret gardens, lakes and woodland trails or pop into the neighbouring Ashdown Llama Park."
