Fodor's Expert Review Bailiffscourt Hotel & Spa

Climping St., Arundel, West Sussex, BN17 5RW, England

Situated a few miles south of Arundel, this charmingly out-of-the-way country escape offers lovely period features, expansive private gardens, and one of the region's finest spas. With sleeping options spread out across a series of houses, cottages, and courtyards, most of which are (despite appearances) less than a century old, the rooms vary from highly decorative, medieval-style suites with four-poster beds to bright and breezy bedrooms with modern furnishings. Ask for a peek inside the 13th century chapel, one of the truly historic buildings in the grounds.

PROS

  • elegant tapestry-filled restaurant
  • lovely spa and tennis courts
  • a short walk to the beach

CONS

  • "medieval" decor in some rooms a little much
  • underwhelming afternoon tea
  • spa visit requires walking outside
