Cowdray is an historic Estate in tune with current times. Located in West Sussex, the family-owned Estate has a modern approach to the delivery of outstanding levels of service, comfort and professionalism across all its leisure activities.
The Estate offers 5-star accommodation central to which is Cowdray House, an exclusive-use venue featuring 21 beautifully furnished bedrooms. The House has recently undergone a major refurbishment and now offers a superior destination for a range of events and uses, with access to wider Estate pursuits.
The opportunity to stay at Cowdray is complemented further by a selection of lodges and holiday cottages all refurbished with the same eye for detail, luxury and comfort. Other venues suitable for weddings, private and corporate entertainment can also be found elsewhere on the Estate.
Cowdray is world-renowned as the home of British polo where the sport is played throughout the summer season. The more adventurous can take up polo tuition at the Academy with all levels welcomed, including complete novices. A championship 18-hole golf course, game and clay shooting, fishing and wildlife tours further add to the comprehensive mix of outdoor activities.
At the heart of Cowdray lies a ruined Tudor mansion with a wealth of history and intrigue. A recent initiative has been to establish an art studio for individual and group lessons from our resident artist specialising in the renaissance genre.
A focus on health and wellbeing is central to the management philosophies and ethos at Cowdray. The Farm Shop and Café’s impressive and healthy produce pays tribute to sustainable farming practices and seasonal, local sourcing. Similarly, Cowdray champions holistic lifestyle management with retreats and specialist therapies based at their dedicated wellbeing centre.
The 16,500 acre Estate also offers a range of residential, commercial and agricultural properties for rent, as well as farming and forestry operations.
