No place for sulky teens or surly seniors in this generations-friendly dream getaway near Petworth East Sussex. Family harmony is surely guaranteed at Cornucopia whether you’re an early riser or night owl.
WHY WE LOVE IT
They’ve thought of everything. It’s a bit like your own personal Center Parcs. Bowling alley? Tick. Heated pool? Tick. Private cinema? Yes please!
Get away from it all in gorgeously-manicured gardens, snooze beneath a tree or watch re-runs of fabulous movies on the biggest home-screen imaginable.
Splash about in a heated pool (May to September), relax in the hot tub or take to the lake in boats moored off a private jetty.
No room for boredom. Wifi is a given but they might even put down the phones for a while for games of air-hockey, tennis, pool – or some crazy bouncing on the trampoline.
The twinkly starry ceiling and swathes of luxe fabrics in the Moroccan-style relaxation room on the lower ground floor create a pampering retreat for some blissful ‘me time’ away from the main house.
Gather together for a ten-pin bowling, tournament, chill-out with a family movie or feast al-fresco on the lazy and lovely terrace.
Acres of outdoorsy goodness where little ones can run wild, big ones can escape the workday pressures or simply bask in the do-nothing emptiness of the day.
SNOOZE & STAY
Cornucopia sleeps 14 people in seven rooms. There’s a housekeeper on site and you can hire a chef for your stay.
