Christmas at South Lodge is about the luxury of quality time together.
It’s all about time to take a stroll through the beautiful grounds, enjoying leisurely meals together so often hurried at home, relaxing with a good book in front of an open fire and taking part in a whole host of activities for all ages.
In the heart of the dramatic Sussex Downs, less than an hour from Central London lies South Lodge Hotel, an inspired and spacious retreat to indulge yourself with fine wine, gourmet food and unbeatable horizons.
