Romantic Breaks at Bailiffscourt Hotel and Spa near Climping Beach

With its crackling log fires, four-poster beds and delightful gardens, Bailiffscourt Hotel and Spa in West Sussex is an ideal escape for two.

Peacocks roam the hotel’s 30-acre grounds and a few minutes’ away is Climping Beach, ideal for a blustery walk. Back at the hotel, relax in the impressive timber-framed spa with its indoor and outdoor pools and Mediterranean-inspired treatments, before sitting down to dinner in the romantic, tapestry-clad restaurant.
