About Southdowns Manor

Dumpford Lane, Trotton
Nr Petersfield
Hampshire, GU31 5JN

Southdowns Manor is a beautiful country house and hotel set within the South Downs National Park. This 19thCentury property oozes the elegance and charm that many couples look for in the perfect wedding venue. Our tranquil gardens, rural backdrop and wisteria walkways also provide the quintessential English setting. 

We think you’ll agree, Southdowns Manor is one of the most picturesque wedding venues in England. So, you can guarantee a stunning collection of wedding photography here. 

Its excellent range of wedding packages, sensational dining and private, home-from-home feel make our property a popular place to get married. Bordering Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex, you will find us in between the attractive market towns of Petersfield and Midhurst. It feels blissfully secluded, yet is surprisingly, very accessible. Especially for wedding guests travelling from Southampton, Guildford or London.

The venue is fully licensed for civil ceremonies and can cater for weddings of all sizes, from small, intimate weddings to larger weddings of up to 150 guests. The Banqueting Suite is an excellent choice for larger wedding breakfasts and is furnished with white silk drapes, wooden flooring and ceiling fairy lights. It can also be decorated to suit your individual tastes. 

We have a variety of places to hold an indoor wedding ceremony here. However, if you are hoping for an outdoor wedding, our romantic gazebo is perfect for this. Alternatively, church weddings can be held in the Grade I listed St George’s Church in nearby Trotten. We can then host your special wedding reception on your return from the church.

There are 14 luxurious ensuite bedrooms available for wedding guests at Southdowns Manor. We also have a stunning honeymoon suite and collection of elegant reception rooms for you to choose from. 


  • Sussex Room – This informal area is licenced for ceremonies and can accommodate up to 40 guests. It boasts full bar facilities and is the ideal location for serving canapés and reception drinks.

Fantastic day
Venue Service

By Steve Caine, on 08 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 06 Oct 2017

What a fantastic day we had for our daughters wedding. Southdowns hosted a great reception, beautiful setting, staff were excellent, some of the best 'event' food we've ever had - even down to the breakfast the next day. Couldn't have asked for better. Another three children so who knows, may use again!

Wedding Review July 14 2017
Venue Service

By Malcolm Pritchett, on 18 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 14 Jul 2017

Perfect day in a perfect setting, well planned and well run wedding. Ceremony was outside as weather was also perfect, but many of the guests were unable to hear the Registrar and vows which were in the Gazebo. There should be a microphone.
