Accommodation - Staying in Sussex

Many of our recommended places to stay are more easily accessible by car and there are a number of good accommodation choices between Gatwick and Brighton that can be less expensive. The town of Lewes is approximately equi-distant from all the venues (30-40 minutes by car).

For those choosing not to have a car we recommend you stay in the Shoreham or Brighton & Hove areas. West Worthing, Sussex County Croquet Club (Southwick) & Compton Croquet Club are all accessible by train from there and there is a good bus service from Brighton & Shoreham to Southwick.

There are many hotels in the Brighton/Southwick area from about £80 per night upwards, including most of the major hotel chains.

Sharing an apartment, cottage or house can also be a cost efficient option in this area, but please make sure that if you don't have a car that there's easy public transport to the venues!

Amberley House Cottage Holidays are a sponsor of Sussex County Croquet Club and a Sussex holiday cottages specialists, whose holiday homes include some of the most interesting self-catering accommodation and vacation rentals across Sussex and the South Downs.

When booking, either by phone or through the comments box online, please mention that you are doing so via the WCF Simon Carter GC World Championship website, quoting CROQUET-W.

In addition Sussex County Croquet Club maintains a list of suggested local accommodation, including B&Bs, which can be accessed here.

We're hoping that some of the local Universities will have rooms available in student accommodation, but details are unlikely to be available before April 2019.

July and August are peak holiday times on the South Coast and early booking is advisable.  Please be aware that the final weekend coincides with Brighton Pride Festival which will mean additional pressure on accommodation.
