From the moment we visiting this beautiful venue we knew it would be the one we would get married in, we both fell in love with everything that Southdowns manor could offer us the way it’s so private is amazing and the ceilings are so beautiful. Our wedding day was the most relaxing day with no dramas or hiccups along the way. All the staff and management made our day one to never forget by everybody who came. They even thought of touches to add even I didn’t think we would get. We would get married here all over again if I had the chance too.
Mr & Mrs Turner
we both fell in love with everything that Southdowns manor could offer us !

We had our wedding at Southdowns Manor back in January, I don’t even know where to begin to thank Lois and all of the amazing team that made our day truly perfect from start to finish.

We went to see the venue after viewing a few beforehand and we knew as soon as we walked in pretty much that it was the venue for us, although the grounds outside are stunning with having a winter wedding we thought the venue was perfect inside and cosy especially with the big log fire in the lounge for our big day!

We were so glad to have Lois to help us plan the day and run the day for us, she was absolutely amazing from the beginning and right through to our wedding day, so lovely, bubbly and she did everything to make our day perfect and was very helpful throughout the whole process, always on the end of the phone answering questions that I thought were silly but gave me peace of mind and always very quick to respond to emails too, coming up to my final planning meeting I felt very disorganised and quite stressed but after a lovely reassuring chat with Lois I felt so much more relaxed and that I could trust her completely with everything and all of the finishing touches and I honestly couldn’t praise her enough for giving us the best day possible!

Everyone was so impressed with the venue, how stunning it was inside, typically as I thought it would it rained heavily the whole of our wedding day but we didn’t notice at all! Everyone thought it was such a lovely, cosy space inside especially for our rainy wedding day!

The food was absolutely outstanding! Such generous portions and top quality ingredients to make such lovely tasty dishes, my mum is a professional chef and couldn’t fault a thing and all of the guests was raving about it! The waiting and bar staff were lovely and always making sure your glasses were topped up and happy with everything.

We loved that the venue had the plus side of the B&B package which alot of our guests snapped up straight away! All of the rooms are lovely and the full English breakfast the next morning was delicious!

We feel very lucky to have found such a lovely venue and team at Southdowns Manor that gave us and our guests a truly wonderful day despite the weather and we will recommend to friends and family and hopefully we maybe back one day being guests at someone else’s wedding!

Many thanks to all of the team, we will be forever grateful for making our big day the best day of our lives!

From the very happy Mr and Mrs Griffiths

The Perfect Day

From the first time I saw pictures of Southdowns Manor  I knew it was the place I wanted to get married and I knew if I took my fiancé to the open evening he would feel the same and I was right!
We had our wedding on the 31st March 2018 and it could not have been more perfect, everyone commented on how beautiful the setting was and how everything flowed seamlessly.
The food was fantastic the portion sizes were amazing it’s safe to say no one went hungry at our wedding.
Lois was our wedding and events manger and we can’t praise her enough nothing was to much trouble and everything was done with a genuine smile in fact the whole team was great.
We cannot recommend this venue enough and just wish we could re live the day again!

Thank you for making our day so special!

Amazing day thank you!
From the moment we drove down the drive to southdowns manor we knew that was going to be our venue. We were always after a summer wedding initially but after falling in love with southdowns so much we went for November 9th just to have it there. Our wedding co-ordinators Kate was brilliant from start to finish, on the day she made everything perfect us, making sure the smallest of details were sorted. We can’t thank southdowns enough for the most amazing day that i wish i could relive day after day it was just perfect so thank you very much.
Mr and Mrs Williams
Mr and Mrs Williams

What an incredible experience getting married at Southdowns Manor was! From the moment we enquired and spoke to Natalie to book the date, to the day itself, Southdowns Manor were absolutely amazing. Professional and organised at all times, Hollie, our wedding planner, was fantastic, making sure we knew everything we needed to know throughout the planning process, ensuring it was as smooth and stress-free as possible. On the day itself, we loved the fact we were able to decorate the venue, while the staff ensured that everything was where we wanted it to be. Hollie worked like a trooper on the day, making sure we were exactly where we needed to be at the right time, all the while allowing us to enjoy ourselves and feel as relaxed as possible. Both Peter and I commented on how chilled we’d felt throughout the day and that was absolutely thanks to Hollie. Our guests (and us) loved the food – we’ve had lots of comments saying it was the best meal they’ve ever had at a wedding – and so many people have said how intimate and personal the venue felt. We can’t thank Southdowns Manor enough for everything they’ve done – we’ve had the most magical day, more perfect than we could ever have imagined. Thank you so much. Mr and Mrs Hilton

Mr and Mrs Hilton
We wanted our wedding day to be quite different and a bit unique to us. Between us we had not been to many weddings before but new the kind of ‘usual’ routine of it all and thought that wasn’t quite us. My husband is into his astronomy and we wanted to relate the stars into our day so we decided to pick a time of year where it got dark earlier and hoped we could carry out our ceremony under the stars in the sky. Being in the location where Southdown’s manor is made it perfect for how we pictured our wedding evening. We booked our venue in July for the coming October and I started to panic that I hadn’t left myself enough time to plan and arrange the perfect day but everybody at Southdown’s manor was so accommodating and helpful and full of great ideas that we managed to pull it off! It was the most perfect day/evening and so many people commented on what a great venue we had. Approx an hour before the ceremony it started to rain heavily so we agreed to move it inside for ours and our guests sake but even with the last minute switch it was still perfect, the team put candles everywhere in the room turned the twinkling lights in the ceiling on and it felt so magical and special. We still had our unique day and the evening celebrations topped it off. I would highly recommend this venue for anybody wanting care and attention taken towards helping put their day together and to be exactly what they want. Thank again!

We had such a perfect wedding day at Southdowns Manor. All staff are so efficient, helpful and their attention to detail is second to none. The planning team are amazing, and Kate made sure every little detail was right for the Wedding and the months leading up to the day. Everything was perfect and I would not hesitate in recommending Southdowns.

Mr and Mrs Hall 17/03/18

Our wedding, like most, just flew by! We married last August after being together for 8 years to the day, and I can not tell you how incredible or special our day was, but we still have friends and family tell us how much of a great time they had at our wedding. It was so personal, and absolutely perfect!

The staff all went above and beyond to add extra special touches, and catered to our every need. I was absolutely blown away by how smoothly our wedding went, even when things over ran…everything was seamless, and the staff took it all in their stride.

I would absolutely recommend The southdowns Manor to all those that are looking for a venue, as it is great value for money yet everything feels second to none, and we just wish that we could hold our special day all over again!

Thank you for our perfect day

Mr & Mrs Hood

We loved our whole day and the staff and facilities of Southdowns Manor! I would love to do it all again!!

We unfortunately lost my mum just before the big day and it was a surreal time, sitting in our final meeting with Holly, our fantastic wedding planner, when discussing final seating plans and taking calls from funeral directors!

Holly was amazing and did everything she could to make our day!

The house was everything we wanted, when choosing our venue we were looking for that amazing place which gave us everything under one price, rather than extras for this and that and somewhere we felt relaxed. We had been together for 14yrs before we married and have 2 children so were after a relaxed, family occasion, the bonus was being in such an amazing manor house with exclusive use!

We can’t thank everyone enough and loved every minute!

Zoe and Paul Hoff

“The venue at Southdowns Manor offered everything that we could have wished for. It was exactly how we had imagined our big day would be. Such an intimate space that felt so wonderfully like our home for the day.

Everybody felt how beautifully well organized the venue was – such a smooth transition from my arrival to the ceremony then onto the breakfast and into the evening. Such a bonus for all our nearest and dearest to them be able to stay with us and breakfast together on our first day as Mr and Mrs.

All of our guests couldn’t have spoken highly enough of the venue and the staff that all contributed to our wonderful wedding day xxx”

-Mr & Mrs Siddle

Mr & Mrs Siddle

“Picking a wedding venue is quite possibly the most important and most stressful part of wedding planning. We did our research as everyone does and Southdowns manor made the short list – and it didn’t disappoint from the first walk around to the last goodbyes. We honestly couldn’t have asked for anything more.

From the homely and relaxed feel to the friendly staff and amazingly beautiful backdrop, we knew Southdowns Manor was the venue for us! And wow it delivered!

We booked a weekend package and arrived on the Friday for a relaxed, chilled evening before the mayhem of the wedding day began, the staff were relaxed and organised and the day went smoothly and was everything we hoped for and we have the pictures to prove it.

We couldn’t thank the team at Southdowns manor enough for the amazing day we had and would recommend this venue highly”

– Mr & Mrs Mundy

Mr & Mrs Mundy

James and I had our special day on Friday st Southdowns. Kate was our wedding planner and she was amazing I couldn’t fault her at all! She made sure everything was on time, she contacted our DJ for me when she knew I had some worries, she replied to any emails even when she wasn’t at work. Kate really was amazing. All of our friends and family have said how wonderful the venue was and how amazing all of the staff have been, all of the staff were friendly, happy, polite and very helpful. The food was incredible also! I would highly recommend Southdowns to any of my friends and family looking at venues. I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone that helped make our day so magical and a day we won’t forget.

Mr and Mrs Taylor.

Mr and Mrs Taylor 09.03.18

Could not have been a more perfect day! Kate was the best person we could have had to help us plan our day, she was nothing but patient and accommodating. Only downside is that I cannot relive the day over and over. Thank you so much for making our wedding day so so perfect!

Mr & Mrs McCabe 13/02/2018

I would recommend Southdowns Manor to everyone! I loved every moment of our wedding. All of the staff were amazing and the venue is beautiful. It’s so elegant with out being over the top. Our guests have been raving about how great the food was and how intimate the ceremony felt. A huge thank you to Jenny for helping us book in the first place and to Lois for being a perfect wedding co-ordinater.

MR & Mrs Creser 11/02/2018

We cannot thank Southdowns Manor enough. From the moment we enquired about booking the venue, everyone was so helpful. Hollie, our wedding planner, made everything so simple, going out of her way to ensure we had everything we needed to make our day as personal and professional as possible. On the day everything went perfectly, flowing with ease. We loved that we had the freedom to decorate the venue how we wanted, and all the staff went out of their way to ensure that everything was exactly where it should have been – including us! The food was astounding – so many people told us it was the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding – plus they went out of their way to ensure everything was gluten free for me as the bride. Everyone has commented on how wonderful and intimate our wedding was, and we have to thank Southdowns Manor and Hollie for that. Absolutely amazing venue – highly recommended. Thank you so much.

Chloe & Peter Hilton 28/01/2018

We had an absolutely fantastic day. Lois was attentive and amazing in every way – she made getting married stress-free which enabled us to enjoy the day completely!

The food was outstanding, the organisation was first class, the decor was incredible.

My hair stylist commented on what a lovely and warm welcome Lois gave her as she arrived – and that Lois even offered to carry her suitcase up the stairs – which she did. This wasn’t the only person to comment on Lois’ demeanour, warmth and helpfulness.

Lois followed all of my instructions to a T – everything looked how we wanted it to look. The roads were cleared of snow for our guests arrival and Lois opened up the rooms early for us due to the snow which was a lovely touch. The venue looked remarkable – it was lovely coming down the stairs and not having to go ‘oh they’ve forgotten this’ etc – as a bit of a perfectionist this comment means a lot!

Lois did a fab job of organising with my surprise harpist how to sneak in without Dan knowing. I didn’t have to be involved in any of the conversations, they just sorted it all – fab!

I loved how amazing the rooms looked. Everyone commented on how great the rooms were. The honeymoon suite looks AMAZING in our pictures! The bathroom decor is incredible, as in the women’s main bathroom downstairs. I loved the sparkly lights everywhere. The new bath tub is brilliant.

In terms of the food – it was delicious. I was sad that I didn’t get to try vegetarian mains at the planning evening (being a vegetarian), but I was in luck as the one I did pick (roasted veg pastry) was wonderful. All dietary and special food requirements were met very well. Dan’s aunt – whose disabled daughter was a guest – told us after that the staff brought over some finger foods for Danielle – which meant a lot to them, and they thought it was a lovely touch. So thank you!

The extra swan dessert was beautiful and a lovely surprise. The breakfast as tasty too – I had avocado with egg and that was great. My sausage obsessed daughter liked the sausages a lot! My Mum was very impressed by the toast machine!

The table decor looked great. I asked Lois if they could create the napkins in the shape of suit jackets and she did a wonderful job. I loved the table decor provided by Southdowns – it was a nice feeling when I know other people stress over their centrepieces to not have to worry!

The suppliers were set up brilliantly for the evening – a lot of great things happen behind the scenes! I loved the prosecco cart – the things to add to the drink were lovely. The Love lights looked great, as did the chocolate table the team kindly put together for us. All of our suppliers seemed to be in the right place at the right time – so yes, very happy!

It was lovely once the wedding had finished to be able to sit up with our guests near the fireplace. When we went to our rooms we had our Christmas offer cheese and crackers and prosecco which was lovely, and leaving the cake and cake toppers in the room with the note was a lovely thought. It was also great to have cake out for the guests after the wedding had ended.

In terms of organisation everyone we spoke to was lovely. We initially before booking spoke to Joe, then we had Hollie for pre-planning and then Lois. Everyone was brilliant, attentive and full of great ideas. Hollie gave us the idea for the kids room of having films and bean bags which the kids really loved, especially when they were tired after all that chocolate and dancing!

That’s everything I can think of at the moment! So yet again, thank you for making our wedding very special. Our 7 year old says she will get married at Southdowns Manor one day :)

Mr & Mrs Greenwood 27.12.17

Totally amazing from start to finish! Nothing was ever a problem or demand too much. Our wedding events manager was particularly amazing and we felt completely at ease and she had the most calming attitude! Cannot thank her enough !

Georgina & Ian Morley 13/01/2018
From the very beginning of planning our wedding with Natalie and then Hollie the service was faultless. Nothing is too much trouble, the food is amazing and the day ran so smoothly. We had the best day and now have some brilliant memories. If I had to do it all again I would pick Southdowns Manor every time and would have Hollie as our coordinator.

I have had amazing feedback from our guests and every member of staff we encountered were so friendly and helpful. The help I had the day before the wedding meant I was able to completely relax as I knew everything was under control. Cannot thank you all enough

Mr and Mrs Hickie 02.12.17

We could not fault our wedding event manager or the planning and for all her hard work on the day it was all we could have wished for. Her enthusiasm was brilliant and rubbed off on our guests and wedding party. Our younger flower girls were taken care of with food and drinks provided before the ceremony.
The wedding venue was stunning exceeding our expectations on the day.

Kerina and Miz 09.12.17

Lance and I first found Southdowns Manor on the internet and new that this was a very big candidate for our wedding venue. We were then invited to an open evening where we were amazed by how beautiful the building was and greeted with such warmth. The staff made us feel so welcome, we instantly new this was the place for us. That warmth and welcomeness continued though the whole wedding process right to our wedding day. There was communication though out and I didn’t feel like I needed to keep asking questions and worry about a thing, I was able to put all of my trust into there very capable hands. I would like to thank Natalie and Kate especially you guys made the whole process so relaxed and enjoyable and we can’t thank you both enough for that, our day was just simply amazing from start to finish thanks to all the wonderful staff and will most certainly be a day we will cherish forever, We would 100% recommend Southdowns Manor to everyone A* venue with A* service.

Mr and MrsTricker

Our wedding at Southdowns Manor was the perfect wedding for us, the exclusive use of the venue meant we had friends and family enjoy our day without disruptions of other people!
We can’t thank our wedding event manager enough for her help before and during the wedding, she was accommodating to our needs and made us feel very at ease with all of the plans and arrangements including outside suppliers. We had great communication with our wedding event manager and nothing was too much trouble, it was all about what we wanted and how we wanted it but our wedding event manager managed to bring the day together as a whole, we heard lovely feed back from our guests and that’s down to venue and staff, so we thank you all for making our day magical and memorable.

Excellent on Everything….

Our day was so perfect your entire team excelled. Your service and care, plus your attention to detail was outstanding. Big thank you to Our wedding Events Manager, one in a million second to none.

Thank you Andy and Dawn

5th May 2017

Your entire team excelled….

We don’t even know how to begin thanking you enough for our perfect wedding day. You may not know this, but the first day we visited Southdowns Manor we should have been putting our deposit down on another venue, however something didn’t feel quite right. I saw a Facebook advert for Southdowns and we decided to come take a look and were made to feel so welcome and confident in the team that we paid our deposit there and then. From that day, which now seems like a lifetime ago, our confidence in you has never faltered. Every single point of contact we had reassured us we had chosen the right venue.

The day itself couldn’t have been better. You and your team went above and beyond. From a different chair for my Nan to your Chef decorating our cakes in an unexpected yet beautiful way. You have been very professional yet so kind, happy and so lovely, always with a smile on your face.

The food at our wedding breakfast was incredible, really worth of 5 stars. All our guests had full bellies ready for a night of dancing and almost everyone said how incredible their food was. We didn’t get to try the chilli in the evening but plenty of guests went back for seconds and thirds!

Breakfast the next day, too, went without a hitch. It is all piping hot and delicious. And after asking hot croissants were brought out. Nothing was too much hassle.

Thank you so much to you and everyone that helped make our day perfect. We hope our friends book for their wedding so we can come back!

Lots of love

You and your team went above and beyond.

Our Event Manager went above and beyond to make sure that we had a perfect day from planning and answering all our many emails to the big day itself. We had a lot of lovely comments from our guests on just how fantastic the staff, food, atmosphere and everything was. We felt very looked after and the day flowed beautifully. We cannot thank the team enough for all their efforts. We will continue to recommend Southdowns Manor to every future bride and groom we meet. Our vegan friends felt incredibly looked after and catered for. Please send our huge thanks to the chef, not only from them but us as well (the sausage and mash were AMAZING!!!)

Thank you so much from

Fantastic comments….
Thank you so much for everything. We could not have asked for a more perfect day. You and your team were just incredible and made us both feel so at ease and confident that you would make it perfect.
We had almost all of Day guests saying how perfect the venue was, the staff were and how incredible the food was. Which, it was, the food was just incredible. And we were blown away by how the cake table looked, and how the chef added some decoration to the cakes. It was just perfect. I don’t think we could ever thank you enough.

Couldn’t fault the venue, staff or food at Southdowns it was all absolutely brilliant. Our wedding & events manager was fantastic and made everything so easy for us. Thank you so much for making our day so special.

Wedding 02/16

We can’t thank you enough for making our day as special as it was, we wish we could do it all again.

Mr & Mrs Ponting!

The venue is exceptional, an old manor house that has been completely refurbished to provide a stunning venue for you wedding day. Our wedding is booked for 30th May 2016. We have made the initial arrangements with Southdowns Manor and have found the staff to be helpful and well informed. Nothing is too much trouble to organise. They are approachable and efficient. We are so excited now it’s 2016, only 5 months to go!

Deborah Cairns – 3rd January 2016

I got married here in Dec 2014. It was a magical day and everything was taken care of by the staff and wedding coordinator. I didn’t have to worry about anything. It was the best day I could have asked for.

We weren’t looking to book our wedding till next year, went along to the an open day and ended up booking! Staff were all soo friendly, the pricing is good. Cant fault the service we have received. They also reply to email straight away! (Unlike some venues)

Southdowns Manor was the perfect venue for us. It is a beautiful building, with outstanding decor .

With a coordinator and amazing staff, planning our wedding at the Manor went very smoothly. We had the most perfect day, with all of our guests enjoying the atmosphere, food and celebrations.

Thank you, The Newnhams x

Mr and Mrs Newnham | December 15

I attended my son’s wedding last Friday. I simply have to write to express my appreciation for the high quality of every aspect of the weekend. The venue itself was immaculately presented and all the staff were welcoming, helpful and cheerful from the moment the guests arrived until the last guest departed on the Saturday. I must single out Holly, the Event Manager who worked tirelessly to take care of every detail and who made it quite clear that the bride and groom were the focal point of her attention. Congratulations!

Mr Mills – November 2015

Eve and Seth- February 2015

The pictures from our wedding day are so stunning, because of the surroundings we were in at Southdowns Manor. You feel like you have so much space to yourselves for just you and your friends and family. I wish I could do it all over again!! Everyone was so helpful, and it was so apparent to us that your team would do anything to make our day as memorable as it has already been. Thank you!! Lisa and Nick Hambly xx

Excellent day, Mrs Smith very happy phew!

She said she will remember her day forever. All guests commented on wonderful venue and especially the piping hot food and excellent staff, especially our planner.

I would highly recommend to anyone visiting to get married at Southdowns Manor. Please do it! Even the night doorman was brilliant and good fun. Very helpful to me and my guests.

Mr & Mrs Smith – 29th August 2014

Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The extra touches were unexpected but very appreciated. When we got to our room the bath was run, room was tidied and champagne and as my bride was drinking apple juice due to pregnancy, there was a jug of that too – very thoughtful! Breakfast and the main meal were delicious and our planner Holly was amazing.

Mr & Mrs Nelson- 22 July 2014

The Southdowns team were fantastic from start to finish, particularly over the course of the wedding. They were all so lovely and it made us feel as though we were amongst friends not staff. Cant thank you all enough!

Mr & Mrs Smith, – July 2014

The venue is excellent with amazing service from the WHOLE staff team. Lots of our guests commented about how helpful and friendly the staff were. Massive attention to detail and thoughtfulness. Absolutely FANTASTIC!! We were so impressed with the food that we asked to see the Chef and kitchen team in person to thank them! Fantastic food, served quickly and hot – brilliant!

Mr & Mrs Thornton-Bryar- July 2014

The venue staff were excellent and went out of their way to accommodate our requirements and make everyone feel at ease. The day ran without problems and was extremely well organised. The food was gorgeous and we loved the bridal suite including filled bath, buffet for us and petals on our bed. Thank you for making our wedding so special.
