Your Hotel —
This beautiful Elizabethan stone mansion, built in 1598, was one of the first country house hotels and is a proud member of Relais et Chateaux, an association in France that promotes hotels of excellence.
Gravetye's most notable owner, William Robinson, one of the greatest gardeners of all time, bought the Manor and the one thousand acres in which it stands in 1884, and it was his home until he died well into his nineties in 1935. The tender care, love and hard work that went into the gardens is still evident today. The well manicured gardens are the perfect for a peaceful, romantic afternoon stroll!
The hotel boasts a fantastic restaurant serving a wide range of culinary delights.
Guests at Gravetye Manor can also enjoy a range of treatments in the privacy of their room - advanced bookings are required.
