A Georgian Country House set in the South Downs
Stately elegance and an English pastoral landscape where sheep do safely graze, we have played host to the upper-crust, entertaining enlightened, and sometimes colourful guests since 1473. If you are looking for something reassuringly classic set in beautiful rolling hills, but still with an edge then we would love to welcome you.
Comfortingly Individual
At Firle, we pride ourselves on an eclectic mix of timeless elegance, simplicity and fun. Anything goes for your wedding party so choose indoors and outdoors, the grandeur of the Great Hall to the rustic but stately proportions of the Georgian Riding School. Feel the warmth of Italianate elegance in our Courtyard or enjoy the whimsy and cottage border of our Secret Garden. We will create a day fitting for you based on your taste and your ideas, with any guidance or help we can provide.
Firle Kitchen
Our chefs have years of experience and will work with you to create an unforgettable dining experience. Whether you are planning a grand banquet, seasonal sharing platters or a delicious selection of canapés and cocktails, with attention to flavour and seasonality we will carefully craft a gourmet feast that is about you and your guests.
Space to Party
As your evening gathers momentum, surrounded by your favourite people, we have the perfect spaces for you to party from a small civilised soiree to the largest hootenanny or wing-ding!
A Wing of Your Own
If you would like to have the full stately experience then stay with us, and as the party winds down, quietly slip away to your own private wing at Firle Place for a last glass of champagne and your first night as newlyweds in the grandest of bedrooms.
Hair of the Dog
Create more new memories and re-live the best bits again and have those special friends and closest to you join your table for breakfast. Choose breakfast in one of our state rooms, or outside on the terrace before a knock about of croquet.
The wonderful thing is we seek to be flexible about your special but also individual day.
