Shopwyke Manor, Goodwood, West Sussex

Whatever your interest in horsepower whether it's at Goodwood or Cowdray, we have two superb and high quality Sussex executive homes to offer you that are perfect for your executives and corporate guests who enjoy the high profile horsepower events here in Sussex!

Shopwyke Manor dates back one thousand years, a manor home steeped in local history and today presented to the highest standard complete with maid service. For top executives and key guests it is a special place to stay allowing you to entertain in style during our premier events..

The House on the Brooks is a magnificent recreation of a Saxon hall with four individually themed bedroom suites and outstanding views to the South Downs. Both of these upmarket houses are in ideal settings for either of your choice of event.

So turning to horsepower!

Cowdray Park is without question the centre of English Polo. The season highlights in 2012 include;

Saturday May 19 - England vs USA The St Regis International Cup

Sunday June 24 - South Downs Polo Day

Saturday 7 to Sunday 15 July - The Veuve Cliquot Gold Cup

Today Goodwood does not need an introduction - The Festival of Speed is the biggest motorsport garden party in the world evoking everything that is great about motorsport. It now also incorporates the 'new' British Motor Show with the Moving Motor Show held on the Thursday preceeding this great event.  This year the dates are Thursday 28 June to Sunday 1 July. 

The Goodwood Revival is too a firm favourite and the opportunity to enjoy motorsport in the time capsule of a golden era! A perfect backdrop for corporate entertainment and dressing in period style. The dates this year are Friday 14 September to Sunday 16 September.

Internationally acclaimed as one of the most beautiful racecourses in the world, Glorious Goodwood holds its traditional August spot neatly fitting between these great motorsport events. Commencing on Tuesday 31 July to Saturday 4 August, it is certainly a highlight for any type of horsepower!
