Cottesmore Golf & Country Club is a unique wedding venue nestled in the verdant surrounding of Crawley, West Sussex. A prime location for country weddings, this stylish property boasts its original character and charm, elevated with a contemporary new look. With brand new function rooms and 247 acres of pristine grounds, this luxury venue has a little something for everyone.

Facilities and Capacity

Sitting midway between Brighton and London, Cottesmore Golf & Country Club is an ideal setting for a destination wedding in England's historic south. The venue is licensed to host indoor and outdoor ceremonies for up to 150, allowing you to set the tone for your elegant affair. You could choose the romantic Barn Room for an enviable rustic ceremony, embraced by a vaulted ceiling with English oak beams, arched mirrors, and ring chandeliers. Or soak in the southern skies with an open-air ceremony on the outdoor lawn. Nestled within a secluded tree-lined glade, this enchanting space includes a white wooden gazebo where you can exchange your vows. Afterwards, The Challis Suite opens up for 150 guests to indulge in a wedding breakfast before welcoming a further 50 for the evening reception. Here, light wooden flooring and a calming stylish interior add a contemporary feel. Charming antler chandeliers adorn the beams, and the marble-topped bar creates an impressive feature. Aglow with natural daylight, guests will feel at once relaxed and amazed, gazing through the floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the French-styled courtyard.

Absolutely perfect!

We can't thank Cottesmore enough for making our wedding so perfect!
It was the best day of our lives and our friends and family couldn't have enjoyed themselves more!
The venue is flawless, the staff were so impressive and the food is fantastic!
My only wish is that we could do it all over again.
Thank you Cottesmore. We will be eternally grateful!
I'll send the professional photos once I have them.

Brilliant wedding

We had our wedding here in Jan 24. I cannot praise Jackie & Julie ( events managers) enough for their professionalism, organisation and flexibility. There are three rooms which means you can have the ceremony then canap茅s followed by wedding breakfast without having to move far or wait for room to be set up. We had a disco in the evening so they opened up the partition between middle room and dining room. There were enough waiting staff to ensure everyone鈥檚 meal was served hot. The setting is beautiful even in the winter. One friend described it as the best wedding they had ever been to.

October Wedding 2023

We had our wedding at Cottesmore at the end of October. The staff from the first viewing to the final minutes of our wedding went up and beyond to fulfil our needs every step of the way with a professional and friendly manner. Nothing was to much for them and their advice was so helpful as everything is very overwhelming on the lead up to the day. Julie and Jackie made sure everything was so special and the staff on the day made sure everything ran smoothly. A big shout out to the bar staff too, they were amazing throughout the evening. I highly recommend this venue. It is also such good value for money compared to other venues in the area.

A dream come true!

Our wedding at Cottesmore was a dream come true from start to finish! I knew from the first visit that I wanted to get married there and the experience from then on was amazing. The whole venue is beautiful and I loved every visit in the lead up to the wedding and of course the wedding! The food, the rooms and the grounds are just wonderful and I can鈥檛 wait to go back! Jackie, Julie and all the staff are brilliant at what they do and really made the process relaxing and enjoyable. Thank you for always answering my questions and helping to make our day so special! I can鈥檛 believe it鈥檚 over and wish we could do it all over again!

Unforgettable Wedding Day!

From start to finish having our wedding at Cottesmore was the best decision we made. The venue, accommodation, the staff, the food, the grounds - everything was simply perfect. Our wedding day was on the hottest day of the year in September 2023 and I remember asking when we were first shown around the venue, if they had air conditioning and little did I know 18 months later, we would be needing it on the coldest setting!

The whole day was incredible and a day we will never forget. Jackie and Julie are simply AMAZING in the Events team. No question too little and they were always there to help throughout the whole process, we cant thank you both enough. Best Day Ever!

A perfect day!

Choosing Cottesmore Hotel, Golf and Country Club as our wedding reception venue was a no brainer.

We were fortunate to have sunshine on our wedding day. The atmosphere was perfect as the windows allowed the whole venue to be filled with light. However we were confident that whatever the weather, the venue still would have been beautiful! The barn style room, with its beams provided character alongside the clean and modern decor. The courtyard provided the perfect spot for our guests to sip their drinks in the sunshine.

Julie and Jackie from the events team made the process of wedding planning so smooth. They promptly answered every question we had via email and in person at our pre-wedding meeting. All of the staff working throughout our wedding were polite, professional and everything ran like clockwork.

Our guests commented on the high standard of the food throughout the evening and Cottesmore was able to cater to a variety of dietary requirements.

Importantly Cottesmore had ample space to accommodate all of our guests (approximately 130 in the day and 160 in the evening). The rooms at the hotel were beautiful and allowed guests to stay on site.

We couldn鈥檛 recommend Cottesmore Hotel, Golf and Country Club enough as a wedding venue!

Perfect Venue, Perfect Staff

Jackie, Julie and the entire team were incredible start to finish! From the very start of planning, they answered all our questions, replied to our many, many emails and their communication was spot on!
We had a minor blip with the wedding in the week running up to the wedding but they can鈥檛 control the weather and their communication and support made the whole thing a lot easier.
The grounds are spectacular and considering it鈥檚 so close to the airport and motorway, you鈥檇 never know, it鈥檚 a little haven of peace and calm.
All of our guests commented on what an incredible venue it was and how friendly and kind all the staff are, and we couldn鈥檛 agree more! They made our day so incredible and we cannot thank them enough for all their hard work and dedication!

Wedding Reception Perfection!

We chose Cottesmore as our reception venue one because its beautiful but two because of the availability of the rooms for our guests. Jackie and Julie have been amazing, prompt communication and very calm!
The venue was able to be transformed into our vision and it looked beautiful with the decorations that Shelley's provided. The compliments on the food from our guests were plentiful and with the revised menu really made it excellent. We had the perfect reception here.

Best Day Ever!

What an incredible venue and team of people! Cottesmore really did help us achieve our dream day and we are so grateful for everything. The communication from Julie and Jackie is excellent and they were a delight from start to finish. The venue itself is stunning and the lake really gave us the extra special setting for our photographs. Our guests all agreed what amazing food they offered and having our family and friends stay at the wonderful hotel was an added bonus.

Perfect! Couldn鈥檛 have asked for more!

The team at Cottesmore were amazing. We got married in April 2023 and they couldn鈥檛 have made it easier. They were lovely to deal with and so helpful, they really made it a stress free process.

The actual day ran smoothly and guests commented on the lovely venue and amazing food. We couldn鈥檛 have picked a better place!

The perfect venue!

I honestly can't fault a single thing with cottesmore. They were amazing from the first contact all the way till after my wedding.
I got married here on 9.9.22 and it was the most fabulous day. Jackie and Julie were on hand to help and Julie even walked my daughter down the aisle as she was too scared to go on her own. Jackie came to my room in the morning to check how everything was. And aliyssa the food and beverage manager was incredible. I didnt know till after that my aisle runner had been delivered (by a different supplier) filthy and rather than tell me she took it upon herself to hoover and clean it, as not to stress me out. The venue is stunning and the photos by the lake are incredible. I have already been back to the beauty salon and the feeling I got from driving down the beautiful long driveway was magical, cottesmore will have a special place in my heart and I look forward to making any excuse to go back.
