Park House is a quintessentially English, small luxury country house hotel and spa located in the village of Bepton and only five minutes from the historic market town of Midhurst in West Sussex.

It nestles under the South Downs in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there are stunning views of the countryside in every direction. Its beautiful and peaceful rural location offers an unrivalled experience with only birdsong to interrupt your thoughts. It has a warm and welcoming ‘home-from-home’ atmosphere and is owned by the fourth generation of the O’Brien family. Ioné & Michael O’Brien first opened their family home as a hotel in the late 1940s and since then has been transformed into the luxury hotel it is today.
