Info about Amberley Castle
Located in the picturesque village of Amberley in the beautiful West Sussex countryside, Amberley Castle is a unique luxury hotel steeped in over 900 years of history. Within its medieval walls lies a picturesque retreat which seamlessly blends ancient architecture and history with modern design and contemporary cuisine, cooked to the highest standards.
Nestled safe and secure behind a portcullis, Amberley Castle lies waiting to be discovered as a truly unique wedding venue.
On the doorstep of the South Downs National Park, with its green rolling pastures, open spaces, ancient woodlands and river valleys Amberley Castle has been used exclusively by royalty, politicians and VIPs throughout its history. 12 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens (roamed by a resident white peacock) set the scene and the castle is still completely enclosed by a high curtain wall, with the medieval stonework forming an evocative backdrop to your special day.
Venture inside and you are greeted by 900 years of history - suits of armour stand to attention, intricate coats of arms tell tales of previous residents and original stonework frames every aspect. Fine fabrics and beautiful antiques complete the setting along with roaring log fires in the winter months. Fill the rooms with your nearest and dearest and you have all the ingredients for a truly magical wedding day.
Amberley Castle is located less than 60 miles south west of London and only 22 miles from Brighton in the village of Amberley.
The castle is still completely enclosed by a 60ft high curtain wall which is 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 stand at the corners, with a small water-gate in the west wall and a Norman postern in the east wall.
With over 12 acres, many visitors simply wish to wander through the beautiful formal gardens contained within the Castle walls. The medieval stonework, rose-covered arches and topiary, dating from the 1920’s, form an evocative backdrop to the colour and fragrance within the perennial borders. The upper courtyard provides a delightful setting for afternoon tea or aperitifs. Camelias and magnolias grow proudly here and Koi carp bask in the charming ponds.
