Amberley Castle, Amberley

Amberley Castle stands in the village of Amberley, West Sussex (grid reference TQ027132).

The castle was erected as a 12th-century manor house and fortified in 1377, giving it a rhomboid shaped stonework enclosure with high curtain walls, internal towers in each corner, a hall and a gateway. It was used as a fortress by the bishops of Chichester. The walls, gateway and two of the towers remain as a Grade I listed building and are now in use as a privately owned hotel.

  • Very tranquil, relaxing and beautifully maintained. All staff were very professional, very friendly and helpful. I born in England, but now live in Canada and thought that on my trip home I would visit and stay in a few places. Amberley castle was a place I loved, even though it was only 1 night, it has left me waiting for my next trip home and I will be spending more time there. I highly recommend Amberly Castle.
  • Perfect afternoon tea with fresh sandwiches, interesting cakes and lovely scones. Staff were all very friendly, professional and well dressed. Little touches like the polished silver tea pots made it extra special. The setting is just spectacular. Expensive but well worth it!
