Patrick's Barn is a 17th century Sussex Barn on a private estate and farm at Chiddinglye, outside West Hoathly near Ardingly West Sussex. Chiddinglye is set in the High Weald and is home to the Earl and Countess of Limerick.
Wedding couples have a week to set up and the place to themselves for their wedding day. They may conduct a ceremony under a 400 year old oak tree and hold a reception in the 11 acres of garden, with 25 mile views across the High Weald to the South Downs. Enter via a spectacular avenue of Calfornian redwoods featuring some of England's tallest trees, and enjoy an outstanding show of azaleas and rhododendrons in spring, or golden autumn colours, all making outstanding backdrops for photographs. Nearby woodland includes bluebells, ferns, mosses and exotic sandstone outcrops.
Then its down to 17th Century Patrick's Barn for eating, drinking and dancing, with top quality bespoke catering from the Garden Chef and craft beers available from Chiddinglye's own micro-brewery: the Missing Link.
Patrick's Barn and the adjacent Byre can accommodate up to 120 seated for dinner and 150 in total. There's plenty of room even if it's wet. The ambience is rustic and relaxed with woodchip on the ground and sheep around the corner. Live music, DJs, bucking broncos all welcome.
Hire of the venue includes tables, chairs and concert standard Bose sound system. Guests may camp or glamp in Barn Meadow, in own tents or teepees. Otherwise plenty of local hotels to suit all budgets.
We've been hosting weddings for four years now and nothing gives us greater pleasure than providing the stage for a perfect wedding day.
