We are in the heart of English wine country and huge fans. With the biggest English wine list in the country we are proud to be able to say many of the local estates around us are good friends and we are so happy to flow as many of our customers their way.
If you are into wine this is for you. A two night break that will allow you to try many of the top local cuvées and visit one of our closest partners, the much celebrated Gusbourne Estate, a twenty minute drive away.
Arrive in time for tea at 4pm and a freshly baked cake from the kitchen, then a stroll on the beach or a pre-booked beauty treatment in our Beach Hut mini spa?
Dinner tonight is going to be special. A real taste of the very best local ingredients, both food and wine. Start off with a glass of Gusbourne Blanc de Blanc in the bar before heading into the Dinning room where a sharing plate of starters and a glass of Chapel Down white awaits.
Your main course is straight off the robata grill (today’s catch off the boat, an incredible cut of meat or something vegetarian, you tell us) accompanied by an amazing red from Simpsons Estate.
Pudding is something to share alongside a delicious glass of English rosé champagne from Oxney. To end, perhaps a digestif from Harris Vintners highly curated list of single estate armagnacs and cognacs in the Snug and to bed.
A cheeky Bloody Mary alongside something cooked from the kitchen? They’re on us and a great way to start the day.
A VIP trip to Gusbourne Estate has already been planned. It’s a short drive away and you’ll be greeted in person by one of the team. A fully hosted tasting and a tour of the estate will fill the next three hours, you’ll leave as a Gusbourne Ambassador!
Later back with us they’ll be plenty of time for a Gallivant Experience, a gallivant on the beach or another treatment in the Beach Hut mini spa.
Dinner that night is a candlelit three course dinner from our a la carte dinner menu before heading off to bed.
Another delicious breakfast to start the day, perhaps some yoga at 8.00am or a gallivant on the beach to stretch the legs and to say ‘until the next time’ before heading off feeling revived and resplendent!
The VIP tour of Gusbourne Estate is subject to their availability so all bookings need to be co-ordinated with us before any dates can be agreed. Please call or email your preferred dates and we’ll do the rest.
