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.

Overall was a dream come true!
We fell in love with Southdowns Manor when we first came to view the venue. We were greeted by Natalie who was incredibly welcoming and helpful. The booking process was easy and throughout the planning process we were given many different options to enhance our wedding day. There was a slight delay in communication with the planning team initially, but this was soon resolved and communication was great since!Sent on 25/03/2020
On the week of the wedding, coronavirus really affected our day and we were not even sure that the wedding would still go ahead. We phoned frequently and was given detailed up to date information, to keep us informed about the situation.
On the day of the wedding, Southdowns Manor went above and beyond to make us feel special throughout the day. There were really lovely touches to the day such as a swan pudding and a personalised cake knife! The venue looked stunning and was exactly how we had wanted the day to be! The food was delicious, we had many guests complementing the sticky toffee pudding.

We would thoroughly recommend..
Everything from receiving the brochure for the first time, to our initial first meeting , booking and planning meetings, has run smoothly and to perfection. From our Wedding Planner Kate and initial meeting with Natalie we ended up with the perfect wedding which we will remember always with great fondness. The catering team, events team, housekeeping team were all fantastic, friendly and helpful. We would thoroughly recommend anyone to get married here. Winter or Summer, it really doesn't matter, you will get the wedding you've always dreamed of. Many thanks to all at Southdowns Manor.Sent on 10/03/2020

Our day was as magical
We loved every second of our big day and couldn't have done it without Kate, our wedding planner at Southdowns Manor! She ensured that the day ran smoothly and it was such a relief knowing that she had everything in hand. We're so grateful to all the staff at Southdowns Manor who were so friendly, professional and so efficient and the attention to detail was incredible. Thank you all for ensuring our day was as magical as we dreamed it would be!Sent on 04/03/2020
