Hookwood Lodge was originally built in 1865 for a wealthy London Merchant and his family to escape the smog and grind of city living. In the surrounding parkland and gardens, you'll find other beautiful outbuildings which were previously used as stabling for coaches and horses.
These buildings, like Hookwood Lodge, have been sympathetically restored and converted over the years to ensure the properties have moved with the times, yet their original beauty still shines through.
Trevor Bryan purchased Hookwood Lodge in 2005 as a family home. Being only a short drive from Gatwick airport, and not on the flight path, friends and family regularly asked whether they could stay before their holidays so they could begin their getaways in a tranquil environment.
With word of mouth building, the family decided to extend their offering to all travellers and officially opened the property up to all in June 2007.
In March 2017 building works commenced to convert and extend the property. The work has added additional spacious rooms and allowed for environmental upgrades to extend the property's green credentials.
In this short time, Hookwood Lodge has already won TripAdvisor's prestigious 'Service Excellence' award.
