Stay here, and everything that Goodwood has to offer is at your fingertips. Most famous for its Glorious Goodwood and motorsport festivals, the hugely impressive sporting estate has many different elements, and guests of the hotel effectively become members of each one of them. Thus, the superb health club and spa is yours; also, elegant private members’ club, The Kennels; and the membership-only championship Downs golf course. But there’s more: you can visit Goodwood House itself and have a guided tour, followed by afternoon tea in the Ballroom. Plus, there are 19 days of racing a year at the prettiest of racecourses; the Motor Circuit where you can take a spin; and the historic aerodrome where you can fly a Cessna. And the hotel? Sleek and sophisticated with characterful bedrooms and high standards of cooking in the light and airy restaurants. These include the flagship field-to-fork Farmer, Butcher, Chef where the menu revolves around the organic, estate-grown meat. The hotel is also home to Goodwood’s wellness retreats, which includes a gut health programme plus a menopause and Wim-Hof retreat.
