Hidden away for 900 years near the picturesque village of Amberley in the chalk South Downs, Amberley Castle is a magnificent historical treasure that offers a truly unique experience. Through the Portcullis and 60 ft curtain walls you will find beautiful landscaped gardens, fine examples of medieval architecture and an unrivalled atmosphere of peace and tranquility.
Amberley Castle offers 19 luxurious hotel bedrooms and suites, many with four-poster beds and all featuring Jacuzzi bathrooms. The hotel's facilities include two restaurants, lounge areas, tennis court, croquet lawn, gardens and lakes, 18-hole professional putting course and a stunning thatched-roof tree house complete with rope bridge.
The castle is still completely enclosed by a high curtain wall, which is only flanked by a magnificent twin-tower gatehouse to the south and a kitchen block and a garderode tower with gun loops to the north. Square internal towers stood at the corners, with a small water-gate in the west wall and a Norman postern in the east wall.
Amberley Castle is also available for exclusive use hire giving you and your guests total privacy in which to capture the spirit of dreams and legends.
When hired on an exclusive use basis, the Castle can cater for up to 56 wedding guests in the Castle itself and up to 150 guests in a marquee within the grounds.
