Spa & Leisure

The spa at Ashdown Park Hotel is a newly designed barn-style addition to the main building, which complements the long-standing architecture. It is intimate and very romantic and includes a pool, sauna, steam room and a gym amongst its facilities, in addition to the tennis courts, croquet lawn, putting green and jogging trails across the rest of the grounds.

The spa also offers exclusive treatments by Kerstin Florian who specialises in using natural elements including thermal mineral water, mud, algae, herbal extracts and essential oils. They also feature VitaMan products which have been designed exclusively for men containing plant, herb, and fruit extracts that are free from any harmful chemicals, artificial fragrances or colouring, all of which gives a complete sense of relaxation and rejuvenation.

Please note aqua classes take place for 1 hour, every week day morning. Guests can join in, free of charge, depending on availability. The whirlpool spa remains open during the class as does the gym etc

Hotel & Accommodation

Ashdown Park Hotel has served as a hospital, university, home for soldiers, and a preparation centre for nuns, and although the spa area is new, the place as a whole retains a historic vibe. Today, the hotel has 106 rooms and suites, and is surrounded by 186 acres of land including the hotel’s own 18-hole golf course, with the Ashdown Forest beyond.

The main restaurant is the award winning Anderida Restaurant, where all meals are served, including dinner. Dress code - Jackets and collared shirts are preferred for gentlemen. Please, no T Shirts or Sportswear. The food is well deserving of its credited reputation, and there is a fantastic feeling of ceremony – very traditional service matching classical fare. There are also Drawing Rooms with roaring fires, and the Fairways Lounge in the Country Club for more relaxed dining.
