YOUR HOUND LODGE EXPERIENCE
After the frenzied excitement of Christmas, when it comes to New Year often it’s a choice between the pressure of hosting or the effort of going out. At Hound Lodge you can experience the best of both scenarios by holding your very own private house party with your closest friends and family. Everything will be taken care of, so you and your guests can completely relax. From the moment you arrive experience life at a different pace; sit by the fire and enjoy tea and homemade cake in the drawing room served by our butler, James.
Perhaps get some fresh country air and take a walk through the flint and brick arches into the picturesque woodland of the Valdoe, or explore some of the stunning parkland of the estate by foot or on one of our bikes. Return to Hound Lodge and enjoy taking time to get ready for the evening when delicious treats and drinks will be served in the drawing room, before the butler calls for dinner.
Enjoy the most delicious dishes, inspired by organic produce from Goodwood Home Farm, in the splendid dining room. Listen out for the traditional sounds of bagpipes as a player arrives from the ancient Valdoe woodland surrounding the courtyard of Hound Lodge. After a relaxed yet grand end-of-year feast, there will be dancing and
games in the drawing room, with all your favourite drinks from the bar. At midnight a private firework display can be viewed from the courtyard, where a roaring fire and blankets will keep you warm, and a champagne toast will be served at midnight. Breakfast the following day will be relaxed, served from sideboards in the dining room for you to enjoy in your own
time, a perfect start to the New Year, before departing to pastures new.
The Hound Lodge butler and chef will make sure you and your guests are discreetly taken care of at all times, leaving you free to enjoy every moment. The service is warm yet understated, just like staying in the very smartest house parties of the nineteenth century.
To assist with the planning and organising of your stay, our very own Event Planner will be there to guide you through making the most of all Goodwood has to offer and ensuring your stay is everything you want it to be.
