Breathe in the crisp, country air, indulge in posh dining and restorative wellness experiences, and do it all from a stunning estate. Alexander House is all about high-end relaxation and an appreciation of British heritage.
Old World architecture and sweeping countryside vistas meet a contemporary yet inviting atmosphere at Alexander House. This majestic estate got its start in the 17th century, later passing through the hands of Percy Bysshe Shelley and a Governor of the Bank of England. Finally it landed with Alexander Hotels, now known as a coveted retreat on 120 acres of undulating British landscape.
Choose from among more than 50 unique lodgings, from chic guestrooms that look like they belong in London proper to deliciously private Cedar Lodge suites, complete with private terraces and luxurious oversized tubs. Tempting as it is to stay in and drink up the views, Utopia Spa is otherworldly, offering everything from couples massages to Aryuvedic treatments. You’ll also be rewarded with the best of Sussex when you wander over to one of Alexander House’s two restaurants, AG’s and Reflections. Enjoy a classic Afternoon Tea with all the trimmings, or pop over to 1608 Champagne Bar (named for the manor’s founding year) for a sumptuous drink list including 145 wines and 30 hand-picked champagnes.
Just shy of an hour-and-a-half’s drive south of London sits the majestic grounds of Alexander House. Find balance with a visit to the estate’s manicured gardens, or treat yourself to a leisurely bike ride through some of the country’s best cycling routes. For sports lovers, onsite tennis courts and croquet provide more active entertainment while the award-winning Utopia Spa brings a layer of ultimate relaxation to your stay.
The nearby town of Crawley offers a smattering of beautifully bucolic historic sights, including Anglo-Saxon churches (like 10th Century St. Nicholas’ Church) and the Elizabethan Wakehurst Estate. Venture 40 minutes south and you’ll find yourself in Brighton for a quintessential balmy British beach day. Stop by iconic sights like Brighton Pier or the stunning Royal Pavilion while enjoying the burgeoning food scene carried by the likes of Isaac At, The Little Fish Market, and The Salt Room.
