Stunning Wedding Venue at Southdowns Manor
Stunning Wedding Venue With Accommodation
The perfect venue for the most magical day of your life
For the most luxurious wedding venue with accommodation, Southdowns Manor, a dedicated wedding venue in the picturesque South Downs National Park, is the wedding venue you’ve been searching for.
A haven in the heart of the South Downs National Park
Some wedding venues have to work hard to create a romantic setting for guests, but we're lucky enough to be in the heart of the South Downs National Park. It isn't hard to create a magical atmosphere here, surrounded by rolling hills and lush green countryside wherever your look.
Birds chirp, exotic butterflies make the many plants their home, and you might even glimpse a few deer. Our wedding venue is beautifully sited on the borders of Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire.
Offering easy accessibility, you can ensure all of your guests get to join you and experience your special day; and when the party's over, there's accommodation available in the house.
An intimate setting for your wedding day
Offering wedding ceremonies and receptions isn't enough for us; we aim to be the most spectacular wedding venue with accommodation. While other hotel wedding venues allow guests to have a section of the venue to themselves, we offer complete privacy.
As an exclusive-use wedding venue, you can share your vows and celebrate all evening without interruption.
When you choose to get married here, you - and your wedding guests - can truly appreciate every single moment of the day.
Enjoy our charming country house
We left no stone unturned when creating an intimate wedding venue that’s as impressive as the outstanding natural beauty it’s located in. As you step into our venue, you’ll notice the intricate details that make it stand out.
Using the perfect combination of modern design and rustic detailing, we’ve created a unique wedding venue where each room captures the imagination.
Decadent honeymoon suite
Your dream day wouldn’t be complete without a honeymoon suite to retire to after an evening on the dance floor. It’s the first place you’ll stay overnight as a newlywed couple, and we like to think of our lavish suite as a true testament to country chic style.
The honeymoon suite features a beautifully decorated room with a four-poster bed and views of our beautiful grounds. You can also take advantage of a walk-in shower, a large circular bath, and a double sink.
Special guest suites
Our two guest suites have the rustic authenticity you’d expect from a country manor and modern décor. Each suite has its own personality and is ideally suited for couples’ parents.
You’ll find a range of amenities in these suites, ensuite bathrooms and beautiful views of our grounds.
We also offer twelve double rooms for your close family and friends – each with a unique style and plenty of comfort. Our guests can enjoy a wonderful sleep with our high-quality pillows and mattresses.
As our venue has a capacity of 150, we understand that you might need other accommodation options. Your wedding planning team will help you find other options for your guests.
Our desirable location means plenty of bed and breakfasts, hotels and other accommodation just a stone’s throw from our venue.
Why choose Southdowns Manor over other wedding venues with accommodation?
When you have such a beautiful country house, you want to show it off to the world – but we choose to offer it as a romantic setting for large and intimate weddings. As a family business, we know your special day’s importance, and we go out of our way to make it one to remember.
Have your wedding ceremony your way
When you share your vows at our unique wedding venue, you get to take full advantage of a dedicated wedding coordinator who will help you plan every single element of your day.
As a customisable venue, we offer a range of package weddings, but you can also customise your day. Your dedicated wedding planner will also help you make arrangements for other guests if you’re having a large wedding.
Indoor and outdoor wedding options
As one of the UK’s favourite wedding venues, our biggest strength is our ability to customise your wedding. Some guests prefer to use our exquisite ceremony room, while others enjoy getting married in our manicured gardens.
Outdoor weddings are popular during spring and summer- especially when considering our stunning surroundings. Wherever you choose to get married, we guarantee the perfect backdrop for your special day.
Southdowns Manor is for everyone
Hosting weddings is our purpose, and we ensure everyone has the right to get married here. Our main goal is to give each guest a beautiful wedding, regardless of sexuality or religion. Same-sex, multicultural and religious couples can always make Southdowns Manor theirs for the day.
With a professional team, we ensure you and your guests feel welcome, making the day about your love and nothing else.
We’re a sustainable wedding venue
Our luxurious manor house is just one of the sites that await you in the South Downs National Park, but there’s also a sense of tranquillity that you can only get from being in nature.
We love our perfect location and want to do everything we can to preserve the park. So, when we entertain guests, we ensure we do everything responsibly.
When you get married at Southdowns Manor, you can take advantage of our idyllic grounds while still knowing you’re contributing to the environment. We also plant a tree for each wedding we host, meaning your love story will continue to grow.
Work with local suppliers
All of our food is locally sourced, ensuring the highest quality. You can taste the freshness of seasonal vegetables and enjoy impeccable service from our local suppliers. Many of our guests purchase their flowers, cake, and other wedding must-haves from these suppliers.
We give our guests everything they need to have a fabulous day without negatively impacting the environment.
The finest dining options
We know that each couple is different and offer a range of dining experiences. Some guests prefer to keep it casual with a buffet featuring world foods, or a hog roast wedding breakfast with all the trimming, while others want something more decadent.
Our sit-down dinner menu offers an array of choices for all diets and takes the meaning of fine dining to new levels. You can also have a simple pizza buffet, which is perfect for weddings with lots of children.
Choose from a range of wedding packages - or build your own
You can enjoy our beautiful location your way. We know that wedding planning is stressful, and some guests want to focus solely on their vows.
If you're visualising your big day but need help to bring it to life, your wedding planner will support you every step of the way.
We also offer set packages which suit different tastes and celebrations. If you love traditional gatherings, the rustic wedding package will be perfect, but we also have a party package for people who want to dance the night away.
