About us

We love meeting people

Running Hunters Lodge is the perfect way to enjoy the company of so many interesting guests. We provide a welcoming and comfortable place to stay from where you can explore the genuinely exceptional area in which we live.

The house

The house

Hunters Lodge was originally built as a hunting lodge on the Goodwood Estate circa 1650. Over the centuries, it was modified and extended to become a private home, but in the early 1900s, its interior was refurbished to become the Hunters Inn. It became a treasured part of the local community, playing host to weddings and christenings, meetings and parties. It ceased to trade around year 2000 and restoration began in 2006.

Today it stands as a lovingly restored, beautiful and comfortable Grade 2 listed home which has retained much of its original and distinctive character. Craftspeople experienced in sensitive and thoughtful interior restoration, have worked to ensure that the period features work in harmony with high-end, modern utilities to create an incredibly special, truly unique home to which we extend all of our guests a warm welcome.
