Goodwood, Southeast England
Hound Lodge
  • An exclusive-use lodge perfect for parties, celebrations or a family getaway

  • Relax in plush armchairs and sofas around the roaring fire

  • Round-the-clock butler service ensures your every need is taken care of

  • Seasonal produce and local organic ingredients are used to create the very best of home-cooked meals

Purchased by the Duke of Richmond in the 17th century and home to the first major foxhunt, Hound Lodge has since been transformed from palatial kennel to luxurious country retreat. Although the main focus is now on human guests, dogs are still very much welcome and are integral to the history and fabric of the lodge.

With the elegance and style of a traditional country house, Hound Lodge has also been designed with comfort in mind, from the sheep's wool eiderdowns to the hot water bottles waiting in beds at the end of the day. Each of the individually-decorated rooms is a haven of tranquillity, complete with plush armchairs and miniature whisky decanters. Guests need simply ring the bell in their room and the private butler will be on hand for any requests, large or small.

The drawing room is the warm and welcoming heart of Hound Lodge, where afternoon tea is served on arrival and guests can relax on comfortable sofas beside the roaring fire in this home away from home. Pictures depicting the history of Goodwood and Hound Lodge line the walls and dogs can be found throughout the room in ornaments, statues and paintings. This is the perfect place to sink into an armchair with a good book, a board game or a pre-dinner tipple from the drinks trolley.

In the dining room, enjoy meals sat around the impressive Georgian dining table. The menus consist of classic, home-cooked fare which makes the most of seasonal produce and ingredients from Goodwood's own organic farm. The homely meals are enhanced by wine pairings and followed by cheese, port and after-dinner coffee in the drawing room.

Hidden away on the Goodwood estate, Hound Lodge is surrounded by picturesque woodland, where there are several paths offering delightful countryside walks. Guests looking for a more active stay can try their hand at clay pigeon shooting, golf or even racing around Goodwood's famous motor circuit before returning to the lodge to unwind in the utmost style.
