About Hound Lodge
Welcome to a beautifully British house on Goodwood’s spectacular 4,850-hectare estate. The Kennels, and later Hound Lodge, were once the most luxurious doghouses in England, owned by the Duke of Richmond who doted on his beloved hunting dogs. Today the guestrooms are named after hounds from the legendary chase of 1739: 10 hours’ galloping 57 miles across Sussex.
Dogs are still welcome here, free of charge, as well as 20 people. Antique furniture from Goodwood House, British artwork, open fires and roll-top baths create a cosy ambience. Mattresses are stuffed with wool from the estate’s sheep inviting a fantastic night’s sleep.
A butler is on hand to ensure a smooth experience, from afternoon tea in the drawing-room to hot-water bottles at bedtime. Meanwhile, a private chef creates dishes using organic estate-reared and homegrown produce from Goodwood Home Farm.
Guest have full roam of the estate and activities including clay pigeon shooting and horse racing. Play golf at two championship courses or take to the skies at the nearby aerodrome. Enjoy walking the South Downs or visit the Goodwood Hotel for access to the sauna, steam room, pool and gym.
