The Manor House is timber-framed with a central chimney dating back to Tudor origins. Built in the 16th century, the manor has retained much of its original design. The array of rooms on offer blend authentic Elizabethan character and period features with all the creature comforts you expect from modern accommodation.


There are 22 rooms and suites on offer at Langshott Manor. Options range from standard and classic rooms up to master suites, with some rooms featuring four-poster beds. Some of the rooms in the main manor house date back to the 16th and 17th centuries, whilst others were added in early-Victorian times. All rooms boast traditional elegance, with features including cosy log fires, exposed beams and oak panelling.

The rooms have been given quirky, yet fitting names. Each area of the hotel runs a different theme, naming its rooms after local castles, gardens and racecourses, or after King Henry VIII and his six wives.

We checked in and were shown up to our room which was located above reception in the main manor house. We stayed in a standard room, Lewes, which was one of the earlier additions to the house in the 17th century. The room was brightly decorated, yet maintained its charm with exposed beams, an open fireplace and traditional wooden furniture.

The room we stayed in offered beautiful views over the back garden, where couples were enjoying afternoon tea in the sunshine by the pond.


Having requested a quick tour around the manor, we made our way down to reception where Travis, a manager on duty, greeted us and walked us around. It was obvious that he adored the place. He shared lots of stories and information about the produce grown on site, the different rooms available, facilities for private functions and weddings, some history of the manor, along with exciting plans for the future. There were two private functions taking place the day we arrived, and the set-up ensured that hotel guests were not inconvenienced in the slightest.

Walking outside, Travis explained that the ponds in the back garden were the remains of a historical moat which once surrounded the manor, and introduced us to Langshott’s two resident ducks.

Afternoon tea is a popular choice for guests and visitors to Langshott, and in the warmer months the rose gardens make a stunning setting. The gardens definitely have a magical feel to them. There was something about the white iron-framed tables and chairs, combined with the white roses that immediately conjured images of Alice in Wonderland.

We both agreed that the manor would make a beautiful and intimate wedding venue, complete with wedding bell! At the moment, Langshott is licensed for indoor ceremonies, but they are currently undergoing plans to obtain an outdoor ceremony licence to expand the wedding options available to guests.

With a bit of time left before we prepared for dinner, we made use of some of the outdoor games on offer in the gardens, challenging each other to a game of giant connect-four.

Langshott’s onsite Mulberry restaurant offers guests a 3 AA Rosette fine-dining experience for both lunch and dinner. The many lounge areas hidden in various nooks and crannies of the manor house also serve more casual and lighter bites throughout the day.

Wanting to make the most of the Sunshine, we made our way down to the restaurant early and were shown to a seat out on the terrace by the pond. We ordered a bottle of wine and were brought the menu, along with bar snacks and canapés to enjoy while we waited.

The menus have been designed by Mulberry Restaurant’s Executive chef, Phil Dixon, with a focus on quality, local produce and seasonal inspiration.

The dessert menu looked so good, that we decided to skip entrees, and head straight for the main course, leaving as much room as possible for sweet treats. After placing our order we were taken into the restaurant and settled into a corner table by the window which offered lovely views of the garden.

The mains arrived and were nothing short of delicious. I ordered the roasted and poached quail, with sweetcorn, maple, lavender and smoke. Marcus opted for the sirloin of limousin beef, with pea, truffle and young leek. The portion size was generous and the flavours were creative, unexpected and, ultimately, amazing.

Dessert was no less impressive. After asking Travis for assistance deciding, I opted for a passionfruit and chocolate delice, with dark chocolate sorbet and passionfruit crisps. Marcus opted for the intriguing cointreau and szechuan pepper scented soufflé, with garden strawberries and basil.

The desserts came out and we were not disappointed. Throughout dinner, staff made every effort to enhance the experience with wonderful, friendly and helpful service.

Following dinner we returned to the terrace and ordered a couple of cocktails to finish of a truly superb dining experience.


Breakfast is also offered in the Mulberry restaurant. Options include continental breakfast, or guests can upgrade to traditional cooked breakfast or specialty breakfast options.

The continental breakfast includes pastries, selection of fresh juices, fruit and cereals.

The cooked options include traditional or vegetarian full English, porridge, smoked haddock on a poached egg, French toast with bacon and maple syrup and smoked salmon with scrambled eggs.

Champagne, buck’s fizz and bloody Mary’s are also available on request.


Langshott Manor was such a delightful place to stay. Staff were warm and friendly, going above and beyond for guests and making sure that our stay was as comfortable as it could be.

We would definitely recommend Langshott for travellers who look for wonderful service, homely comforts, and a very relaxing atmosphere. If any wedding bells are on the horizon, we’d also recommend reviewing Langshott as a potential venue.

    This hotel really looks like a must-see place. Based on the pictures, I can tell that it has a homey atmosphere that offers elegance at the same time. I’m curious about the bedrooms — their names are very interesting. I think I’d love to see more of the interior. Thanks for sharing!
