Our Venue

Nestled in the heart of the West Sussex countryside, only a short distance from Gatwick and with city links to London and Brighton, Leonardslee Wine Estate is a truly enchanting wedding venue.

Once a family mansion, this picturesque manor house has a unique and welcoming atmosphere ideal for a country wedding.

The top terrace is offered on an exclusive basis for you to enjoy your canapes and refreshments, overlooking breathtaking views in the warmer months. During cooler months, our beautifully decorated Wine Lounge provides an opulent reception space with comfortable sofa seating and soft copper lighting, creating an intimate and romantic space to enjoy with your loved ones.

Our Latilla Campbell banqurting suite has bi-folding doors to create a partition, allowing us the option to adjust the size of the space depending on the numbers within your party. High beamed ceilings, adorned with twinkling fairy lights set the wedding scene beautifully, with large windows overlooking the surrounding grounds.

With a dance floor and bar inside the room, you will benefit from creating a high-energy atmosphere in the evening hours to party the night away!

The Vineyard Hotel & Fullers Cottage

From April 2024, we have launched 9 brand new, beautiful en-suite bedrooms within the venue for you and your guests to enjoy. From standards to deluxe to suites, there is something to suit everyone. Our rates include breakfast with your overnight stay, allowing you to extend your wedding weekend and see your guests the following morning to reminisce on the previous day's celebrations.

We also have a 17th-century cottage within our grounds, with 4 bedrooms (sleeping 8 people), providing extra accommodation for you and your party to book if required.

Our Wine Estate

In June 2024, we will launch the very first of our highly anticipated English Sparkling Wine! Be among the first to enjoy a glass of bubbles from Leonardslee Family Vineyards, grown and produced at our Estate on your wedding day.

Take the chance to capture beautiful wedding imagery amongst the lush, green vines that sweep across the valley of our vineyards.

As a family-run and owned venue, we pride ourselves on flexibility, hospitality of the highest standard, precise organisation, and the delivery of a wedding day that you will forever look back on with the fondest of memories.

Amazing venue and very professional team

Jo and her team were fantastic from day 1. She was so helpful throughout the entire planning process and was very detailed and remembered our preferences. On the day, the team were exceptional - going above and beyond for us and our guests. They were so accommodating, moving our drinks reception to the terrace when the weather improved. They were flexible with extending our drinks reception when they could see our guests were enjoying the terrace.
The venue is gorgeous and the food was amazing.
Not a bad word to say about the team and venue and would highly recommend!

Highly Recommended

From the very first meeting with Events Manager Jo, we decided that this venue was the one. She didn't try to sell it like a business and we ended up with a Wedding package tailored to what we wanted for a very reasonable cost.All our guests commented on how lovely the food ,venue and staff were. 'Top Notch" was one comment. Jo's communication was first class, emails and phone calls were answered very quickly and nothing was a problem. We highly recommend Jo and the team at Manning's Heath

The best experience - thank you!

Where to start?! We had our wedding reception at Manning's Heath Estate this October (2023). From day one, Jo, the events manager, was a breath of fresh air! We contacted so many venues who gave us the same automated spiel and made us feel like a cog in the wedding machine. Jo was the opposite. Giving us a personalised service from the off, making us feel like we were the only ones having our wedding reception there (which is far from the truth) and being genuinely excited for us and our day. Nothing ever felt like too much trouble and the day and experience really was centred around me and my husband and what we wanted from the day. I felt immediately like we could put all of our trust into Jo and the team and that the day would run smoothly (which I am happy to report it did). I never felt like we were being used to make money or ripped off, which unfortunately is the experience we had with so many places and is one of the many things that really stood out to me about Mannings Heath. Jo was easily contactable and really responsive. After our first meeting with Jo and seeing the venue we knew it was the place for us and we have absolutely no regrets about choosing it. The venue itself is beautiful, the wine lodge in particular is a stunning room that was absolutely perfect for our drinks reception. The upstairs room where we ate and had our DJ is also lovely and full of character. You don't need anything to make it feel special (the lights wrapped around the beams and the stained glass windows are already perfect). We had around 75 people in the room - it felt exactly the right size. If you had a smaller party the room was also sectionable. We have had so many compliments on the food and wine. Kellie, Executive Chef, went above and beyond to cater for a variety of allergies and intolerances - as well as for my mum who has particularly complex needs when it comes to food (so thank you so much Kellie). Harry looked after us in the evening, running the show like a star. The rest of the staff on the day were such genuinely nice and happy people. Again, we had a lot of comments on how nice the staff were. It was a pleasure to have our wedding reception here and everything we wanted. Thank you so much Manning's Heath team. We will always have a special place in our heart for for Manning's Heath Estate and will definitely be back. Rowena & Alex

Intimate elopement - Perfect!

The service was incredible, the food was stunning (including the custom cake they made us!), the venue was gorgeous. We had just an incredible day for our intimate elopement ceremony. They lovely staff made sure they helped us with all of our needs on the day and we took some stunning photos on the vineyard and the buggy! To top it off, the sabotage experience was so much fun! Couldn't be happier with how it turned out.

Responsive, friendly, can count on them for anything

We held our reception at Mannings Heath Golf Club and we had a fantastic time. Leila and her team were responsive whenever we sent an email out to them. During the day they handled everything perfectly, the food was great and there was plenty drink to go around. I highly recommend them! They will ensure your day goes as smoothly as possible and the grounds and hotel are superb.

Thank you for making our day unforgettable!

We just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and the team for making our day absolutely unforgettable. The staff were incredible throughout, right until the end of the night where they continued to make sure our needs were met. We had an absolutely great time, and really are grateful to you for your help and support from the outset, and for accommodating our change of date etc etc. We will look forward to revisiting the venue, and especially for the winter wonderland, where we will have, all going well, another little one in tow! Much love Mr and Mrs Smith x

We had an amazing day!

We had an amazing day and everyone at Mannings Heath was fantastic. We would like to particularly thank Sharon who was totally amazing and made sure we had everything we needed at all times and we couldn’t have asked for more.
We also came up to Mannings Heath the following Sunday and Claire played her first ever game of golf on the Kingfisher which was fun. I am pleased to say I beat her comfortably!!
Many thanks
Jon
