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.

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. Guest accommodation includes 26 hotel rooms and 7 self-catering lodges with complimentary access to the health club, spa, and luxury beauty salon.

    A Day We Will Never Forget

    From our visit initial show round right the way through to our special day, we could not have asked for more from Jackie and the team at Cottesmore Golf and Country Club.

    Everyone worked hard to make sure our day was perfect and it truly was! The reception team with Lorraine and bedroom bookings with Courtney were amazing, they listened to everything we needed in terms of who we wanted where and the extra beds etc. The rooms were great and all of our guests commented on how nice they were.

    Luke and his team made the day go so well and my wife and I following him and our photographer on a golf buggy will be a laughable memory I will never forget.

    The food was amazing and exactly what we asked for - even breakfast the next day was superb.

    I would recommend Cottesmore Golf & Country Club to everyone!

    Thank you so much to everyone who has a hand in making it wonderful! 😃👰🏼🤵🏼

    Wishing you the very best for the future from all of us at Cottesmore Hotel Golf and Country Club. Dog and cat included.

    Spectacular!!

    Fantastic day from start to finish, all the staff made this day so special for us, they were professional, efficient, friendly, accommodating in every day, venue organisers, bar staff, hotel staff, everyone made it a day to remember. Jackie and her team put us first and were supportive and so helpful.
    The venue was stunning and classy and modern, the grounds beautiful, the buggy down to the lake was fun and the scenery and photos taken outstanding.
    The whole experience was 10/10 and we would recommend this venue to everyone who are looking for the perfect day.
    We shall return there for our anniversary and special birthdays coming up soon so a party will be arranged too and another stay in the hotel too. Perfect!!

    Mrs and Mrs Room

    We had a spectacular wedding with the Cottesmore. The setting and communication was perfect. Our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been too. Amazing friendly staff, amazing setting and seamless set ups. Only complaint from guests was regarding the food. The vegetarian option wasnt good and several guests asked for more food (ie; just vegtables) and several guests complained the beef was undergone. And veg was hard. Starter and pudding was amazing but meal could use a look at. Other than that we had an incredible day and the staff couldn't do enough or go beyond any more. Thank u cottesmore for an amazing day xxx mrs and mrs Room xxxx

    Cottesmore Golf & Country Club's reply:

    Hello Laura,
    Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a lovely review. We are so sorry that the meal did reach you expectations, unfotunately the beef is always served rare but we will definately take your comments on board. We are delighted that you and your guests had an amazing day and we were glad to have been a part of it.
    Jackie and Julie,
    The Weddings and Events Team at Cottesmore

    Perfect from start to finish

    Honestly cannot praise the staff enough, we had the most fantastic wedding reception and the venue was very accommodating with all the finer details, as we had an Alice and wonderland theme.

    The food was great and bar staff were very helpful. Jackie who assisted us from start to finish was incredible. Thank you all.

    Cottesmore Golf & Country Club's reply:

    Hi Stephanie and Martyn
    Thank you so much for taking the time to give us such lovely feedback. We are delighted that you had a fantastic evening and your decor with the Alice in Wonderland theme fitted in perfectly.
    It was so lovely to be a part of your wedding celebrations.
    Best of luck to you both for the future and we will hopefully see you back here for another special occasion.
    King regards Jackie

    We cannot recommend this place enough

    We got married here at the end of May. It was just perfect. We have had a lot of compliments from our guests about the hotel. The staff were amazing and made it run smoothly, the food was perfect everyone enjoyed it. Jackie was really helpful throughout the planning.
    We even had good enough weather to drive the golf buggy to the lake for some photos. We cannot recommend this place enough for a wedding. Thank you again to everyone who made it a perfect day.

    Our beautiful wedding

    We held our wedding at this lovely hotel. We had a lovely sunny September day, everything went as planned thanks to the amazing help and support from Jackie Levers the wedding co-ordinater. Always at the end of the phone or email to answer any questions. We hired the barn room for our ceremony which was perfect, and the challis room for our reception. The food was wonderful and plenty of it. We had fantastic photos taken in the courtyard and a trip to the lake was great fun and very romantic. The staff were polite and helpful and on hand all day and evening. We stayed the night and our room was beautiful. Roll top bath, walk in shower in a huge bathroom with balcony. The bed was comfy and room well equipped. Our guests had a good and comfortable stay too. Breakfast, once we found it was good. Ordered hot food and helped ourselves to drinks and toast etc. We had a fantastic wedding from start to finish and would highly recommend the hotel and Jackie to anyone. Thank you to all xxx

    The day could not have gone any better

    The day couldn't have gone any better. The staff at Cottesmore are an absolute credit and could not have made our day any better. They were so attentive and welcoming and nothing was too much bother. From Lisa (I do not know how she does it- but she is absolutely amazing), to the cleaning staff, the chefs, yourself, everyone.

    I can't thank you all enough, it was

    Thank you so so much again for everything
