The Shermanbury Estate is a marquee and tent wedding venue in the West Sussex countryside. The secluded estate includes arable farmland, tranquil woodland, a 12th-century church, watermeadows, and abundant wildlife. The team's versatile approach means we can help you curate your dream reception in a venue surrounded by expansive hay meadows, a trickling stream, and views of the South Downs.

Available from May-September, the paddock offers a blank canvas to let your imagination run riot, with photogenic nature-filled backdrops aplenty. From a BBQ in a circus tent to a sit-down banquet in a marquee - all suppliers are your free choice, and the opportunities are endless.

The venue is pet-friendly so that four-legged family members can join the celebrations.


1.5-acre paddock, 100 guests, parking for 50 cars, meadow available for camping.

Dry hire facility - the choice of marquees, caterers, florists, etc., is yours.

The event and wedding management team can handle the strain and stress for you. We can recommend local trusted suppliers based on your needs.

St Giles 12th century church next door (handy if Great Granny insists on some religion in return for footing the booze bill)

Please note: we are a new venue, taking bookings from summer 2024. Current photos were taken recently - updated images will be posted when the weather improves.


We hope you feel the same magical connection to the land. Once upon a time, The Paddock was a holding pen for drovers en route to market with their sheep or cattle. A magnificent ash tree now stands in that space. In the 19th Century, the paddock was the Glebe of the estate, with orchards and vegetable gardens to feed the labourers. In World War 2, the Canadian army built Nissen huts in the paddock to use as bunkers. In the late 20th Century, the area was a stable yard with an exercise ring for horses. Recently, scrub and excess trees have been removed, grass seed planted, and it is now a dedicated events field, waiting for your imagination to be unleashed for your special day!

Located in Horsham, West Sussex, Shermanbury Place is a stunning canvas of a venue for you to bring your wedding vision to life.
