Gravetye Manor is a manor house located near East Grinstead, West Sussex, England. The former home of William Robinson, it is now a hotel and restaurant. As of 2008, holding one star in the Michelin Guide.[1]

History[edit]

The Elizabethan house was built in 1598. It was the home of William Robinson from 1884 until his death in 1935, when it was left to the Forestry Commission, who left it derelict for many years. In 1958 it was leased to a restaurateur.

After the hotel fell into administration early in 2010, the lease was bought by investor and rail enthusiast Jeremy Hosking in March 2010.[2]
