Cowdray House sits at the heart of the Cowdray Estate and is an idyllic setting for your very special wedding day. Whether you are looking to host a large reception or a more intimate gathering, you will find a truely spectacular venue coupled with all the warmth of a family home.
The House can host wedding ceremonies both inside and outside, overlooking the South Downs. The magnificent Buck Hall is at the heart of the house, and includes many original features. It has a vaulted ceiling with an impressive fireplace as a main centrepiece. The hall can accommodate up to 150 for a wedding breakfast and for a bigger celebration, the adjoining croquet lawn is large enough for at least 350 guests.
In addition to Buck Hall, we have three other rooms that can be used for drinks receptions including our beautifully decorated library and drawing room which lead out onto the terrace and croquet lawn.
Within the house, there are 22 stunning ensuite bedrooms and two single rooms, sleeping a minimum of 44 people. We also have additional accommodation on the Estate, including four pretty cottages and a Golf Lodge, which are available to hire. From a leisure point of view the house can offer an indoor and outdoor pool, tennis court, billiards and bowling alley. Guests can also enjoy polo, golf, clay pigeon shooting and other country pursuits on the Estate.
As part of the wider Cowdray Estate, we have additional venues including Capron House and Cowdray Park Golf Club – offering bespoke wedding packages.
