About Bailiffscourt Hotel and Spa

Gothic mullioned windows wink through the trees along the approach to Bailiffscourt. As you walk under gnarled 15th-century beams you can sense the dignity of the Middle Ages. Yet Bailiffscourt is an architectural fantasy, a medieval manor built in the 1930s at immense cost to satisfy a caprice of the late Lord Moyne, from materials dating as far back as the 13th century. Bailiffscourt has a unique atmosphere and a captivating charm. Just a five minute walk through the grounds to one of the most natural, unspoilt beaches in West Sussex. The 39 bedrooms in this Sussex Hotel are luxuriously furnished, many with four-poster beds, oak beams and log fires. Many bedrooms are located in original thatched cottages.

Complement your stay by taking lunch or dinner in the Tapestry restaurant, where the head chef and his team continue to produce imaginative cuisine accompanied by fine wines.

The recently opened Health Spa is a fabulous addition to the Bailiffscourt experience and boasts both indoor and outdoor heated pools, indoor Spa pool, outdoor Californian hot tub, steam room, sauna and gymnasium, in addition to five beauty and therapy treatment rooms with over 40 treatments to choose from.
