View of Wickwoods

A brief history of Wickwoods

Wickwoods was still a country home when it was sold at auction at the Old Ship Hotel in Brighton in 1954. The particulars described it as being situated in a delightful sylvan setting close to Brighton and the South Downs. This is as true today as it was back then. Eventually, during the 1970’s, the house was converted into a private country club, and in 1979, Wickwoods first opened its doors.

However, by 2009 Wickwoods had closed, having fallen into disrepair. It was then purchased by a previous owner with the backing of a group of like-minded business individuals who were prepared to invest heavily in the development of the facilities, the infrastructure and the team. Today Wickwoods Country Club, Hotel & Spa has since created over 70 jobs and well in excess of £1.5 million is spent annually with local suppliers.

The venue is firmly established as one of Sussex’s leading lifestyle venues. The spa, hotel, events, parties, wedding hire and casual dining at The Glass House Restaurant are all available to the public, whilst members enjoy exclusive benefits from an unrivalled Lifestyle Membership.

Events include themed nights, leading tribute acts, live bands, parties, quizzes and extensive tennis tournaments. View the upcoming events and social calendar at

Wickwoods has been presented with many awards and accreditations, including TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence 2012, More Radio’s Best Eatery 2014 and Sussex Life Magazine’s Entertainments Venue of the Year 2015 and Spa of the Year 2017.
