Stay here, and everything that Goodwood has to offer is at your fingertips. Most famous for its Glorious Goodwood and Revival festivals, the hugely impressive sporting estate has many different elements, and guests of The Goodwood Hotel effectively become members of each one of them. Thus, the superb health club and Waterbeach spa is yours; also elegant private members’ club, The Kennels; and the membership-only, championship Downs golf course, with its divine retro buggies, complete with ice box for that all-important bottle of champagne. But there’s more: the pay-and-play Park golf course and Goodwood House itself. Plus, 19 days of racing a year at the prettiest of racecourses, perched on its ridge; the motor racing circuit where you can take a spin; and the historic aerodrome where you can fly a Cessna. And the hotel? Sleek and sophisticated with characterful bedrooms and high standards of cooking in the light and airy restaurants. Doubles from £125.
