Average time to visit
It is very difficult to predict the weather in the United Kingdom - in the summer from May to late September is generally seen as the most pleasant time to visit. Rainfall is difficult to predict - but the UK does not receive as much as many are led to believe! In the winters, temperatures do fall, but there is nothing better than finding a remote pub with a roaring fire to sit beside after a long walk in the country.

Alexander House is a luxury spa hotel with an excellent restaurant located in the rolling Sussex countryside. It's a short distance from Gatwick too, so is a great option for a night or two at the beginning or end of trip overseas from the UK.
Alexander House is a charming property set in 120 acres of attractive Sussex countryside. Offering a choice of restaurants and an award-winning spa, the hotel is located on the borders of Sussex and Surrey, only 55-minutes from London.
As well as being a handy choice for those with an early flight from Gatwick (the hotel will look after your car while you're away and arrange the short taxi ride to Gatwick) Alexander House is a charming bolthole for those looking to escape London and sample the English countryside. The hotel is surrounded by farmland so there are nice country walks to try and characteristic village pubs to visit.
The main building of the hotel is a historic manor house dating from the 17th century. As you would expect, the rooms in this part of the hotel have a lot of character with chandeliers and oak panelling abound. For those who prefer a more up to date feel we recommend the new Cedar Lodge Suites. These huge open plan rooms boast floor to ceiling windows and ultra-luxurious bathrooms.
The hotel offers a selection of charming rooms, with traditional style accommodation in the main building and more modern Cedar Lodge Suites in the nearby annexe. There is also a private two bedroom serviced apartment housed in the manor's gatehouse, for those looking for a little more privacy.
Many rooms offer vistas of the Sussex countryside and you can expect soft towelling robes, fine linen, and complimentary Temple Spa toiletries.
Executive Chef, Darrel Wilde leads the team at Alexander House. The fine dining restaurant, AG's, has won 3 AA Rosettes. The imaginative menu there focuses on the finest seasonal ingredients.
Reflections is the more informal option for delicious lunch and dinner menus.
Afternoon Teas at Alexander House are very popular so we advise booking in advance for delicious teas, cakes and scones served in one of our the stately manor's lounges, drawing rooms, or in the garden.
Alexander House's 'Utopia' spa is one of the best hotel spas in the southeast.
Relax by the indoor pool, revive yourself under the monsoon showers or enjoy soothing hydrotherapy treatments in luxury.
There are 25 treatment rooms as well as relaxation lounges. A large range of treatments is on offer.
Guests can use the ultra-modern gym, take part in yoga classes or enjoy outdoor activities including tennis, putting green, bike hire, and trekking.

Alexander House is an absolutely charming place to spend a night or two. Rather than staying at a dull airport hotel for one night before your trip, why not arrive in the Gatwick area a day early, go for a country walk or enjoy a spa day, have a nice dinner and leave the car here while you travel? It's only a short taxi ride to the airport!
