The HBSA will hold its 94th Annual General Meeting at the fabulous Ashdown Park Hotel & Country Club, which is situated in West Sussex, not far from Gatwick Airport. The weekend is a great opportunity to spend time with industry colleagues and friends. It offers unique networking opportunities, an inspiring business speaker, and also a chance to stay in a hotel which is rich in history since its humble beginnings in 1693 (read about the hotel’s history here).
Address: Ashdown Park Hotel & Country Club
Wych Cross, Nr Forest Row
Just 30 minutes from the M25, the hotel is set in 186 acres of woodlands which are rich in wildlife. The hotel is beautifully appointed with lakes, trails, rivers, and wild deer roaming through the grounds.
The hotel boasts comfortable lounges and a stylish restaurant area which makes the most of the grand interiors of the original house. The East Wing, a former convent, houses a beautiful chapel with original stained-glass windows. There is a modern spa with a swimming pool, fitness room and treatments available (please remember to book treatments in advance to avoid disappointment).
