Barns & Halls & Fields of Dreams!
Venues in Sussex
We have been lucky enough to work at so many lovely venues in Sussex from old barns to village halls and blank canvas fields. Here are some of our favourites that can work for a range of budgets and different sized events. And not just for weddings either – these venues are great for all sorts of event celebrations.
Barns & Beautiful Buildings
Weald & Downland Living Museum
Weald & Downland Living Museum, Chichester, West Sussex PO18 0EU
An entire village made of relocated & reconstructed historical buildings, this beautiful venue is a favourite place for walks & days out, & of course, for being the filming location for the BBC’s ‘The Repair Shop’. It also has three on-site spaces available for weddings & events including the astonishing & architecturally acclaimed Downland Gridshell Building, & Crawley Hall, an intimate space in a 15th century beamed hall. We can create sit-down feasts, beautiful buffets, grazing platters, or picnics. Our traditional wicker picnic baskets very much suit the style of the museum, & really make an event extra special, indoors or out. Ask about our exclusive packages for the Weald & Downland Museum.
South Stoke Barn
South Stoke Barn, Arundel, West Sussex BN18 9PF
A beautiful 19th Century Granary barn off the beaten track with no curfew, & tables & chairs are included. Have canapes & bubbles outside as the guests arrive, then gather under the beams of the barn for a feast, the speeches, the all-important toast, & dancing ‘till late. Have late night bites, perhaps even a BBQ or food truck out on the lawn under the stars. Please enquire about our exclusive packages for South Stoke Barn.
Two Woods Estate
Two Woods Estate, Pulborough, West Sussex RH20 1DD
Walk down the aisle between majestic redwood trees! This magical woodland venue also has a meadow, barn & everything you need for your Big Day.
Ridge Farm, Capel, Surrey RH5 5HG
Acres of landscaped gardens, two English country houses, & a large pool house where you can swim by day & party by night. This very private & luxurious venue absolutely has it all.
There are loads of village halls run by dedicated teams & volunteers in gorgeous areas. They offer very good value, & more of a blank canvas so you can really get creative & add a personal touch to your event. Often they have excellent, well-maintained facilities such as proper kitchens with running water, cookers, ovens & refrigerators (a caterer’s dream!), toilets & parking.
