Amberley Castle has a wide range of facilities and amenities; from the award-winning gardens to the 18-hole putting course, there is something for everybody to enjoy.

18-Hole Putting Course

In 2003, to celebrate the castle’s 900th anniversary, Amberley Castle welcomed a professional standard 18-hole putting course to the property, designed by renowned golf architects Weller Design. Guests can enjoy a round of golf on this putting course or wander through the garden with its impressive water cascade, two lakes, and sublime views of the South Downs.


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.


Guests are invited to step into a time capsule on arrival; suits of armour stand to attention, intricate coats of arms tell tales of previous owners and fine fabrics sit alongside beautiful antiques brought together by the Brownsword family. Warm, inviting drawing rooms with roaring log fires in cooler months encourage guests to relax and unwind.


A hard tennis court can be found tucked away beside the lake with only the views of the South Downs countryside to distract you.


Located in front of the castle battlements within the grounds, croquet is available to all guests. The equipment can be found at reception. If you need any assistance or help with the rules, the reception team will be happy to help!
