Our wedding day was totally amazing and we really can't thank you enough, we really wish we could relive the day all over again. Big thank you to all the team at the hotel also, who made everything go the way we both dreamt.
LUCY & SAM - JULY 2017
Just want to say a BIG THANK YOU for making yesterday's wedding a big success! We really had a great day and all the guests loved it. Our wedding makeup and hair stylist and photographers said they had been to so many wedding venues in the UK and continental Europe, and Ashdown Park Hotel is one of the best in their opinions, and they were surprised that they didn't know about it much earlier.
Just a quick note to say how pleased we were with our wedding last Sunday. We had a great time and all our guests commented on what a fabulous venue it was. Amber was brilliant...and the staff looked after us so well. Everything was perfect
Thank you so very much, we absolutely had the best stay and our wedding day was perfect!! I can't thank the conference and banqueting team enough, they couldn't have been anymore attentive to us or our guests.
Ashdown Park exceeded all of our expectations and more, and even now, three months on I have friends and family telling me how beautiful it is, and how lucky we are to have had our wedding there, obviously I agree! It's the perfect setting for a perfect day, and there really is no other venue I would have chosen, not even one that would have come close to Ashdown. We have the most beautiful photographs - I cannot emphasis enough how incredible it all was.
We were absolutely thrilled and delighted with the way our wonderful wedding day just flowed. We had put a lot of thought and detail into how we wanted our day to be and Sara together with Amber and her team just took over and ensured it was perfect in every way. Smooth running and full of happiness and fun. The bridal suite we had was luxurious to say the very least with the most wonderful views over the grounds down to the lake and forest beyond.
IAN & DIANE - MAY 2016

At Ashdown Park we have four wedding venues licensed for civil ceremonies, from the stunning Summer House overlooking the lake to the beautiful John Hayward Suite which is large enough to accommodate 140 guests, within the converted Chapel.

Whether you require a civil ceremony, civil partnership, or want to convert your civil partnership to a marriage, we have the perfect setting available with plenty of beautiful backdrops to capture the moment.

Contact us now to discuss your every detail.


The Richard Towneley Suite is a converted chapel with a vaulted ceiling and is lit beautifully by stained glass windows. Designed by Harry Clarke, it fills the interior in rainbow shades of coloured light, which creates a magical setting that the bride and groom will remember forever.

The licensed Summer House, which stands in a quiet part of the lawn overlooking the lake, offers an all together different kind of experience which is more informal and relaxed but no less romantic.

Couples are spoilt for choice when it comes to beautiful settings for photographs. Seek out our beautiful Secret Garden, or a shady spot overlooking the lake, backlit by dappled sunshine streaming through the trees of the East Sussex countryside.

Our Revitalise Spa offers bridal party makeup, manicures and pedicures, as well as pre-wedding spa days. So you can totally relax and allow our team to look after your every wedding need.
