About Swallows Oast

Swallows Oast is the perfect wedding venue, located in the heart of the beautiful Sussex countryside at Gibbs Reed Farm.

The charming 1830’s venue is full of unique and traditional character and has been a wonderful banqueting hall for over 20 years, perfect for your wedding celebrations. The Oast’s roundels at the end of the building provide a fantastic main entrance into the hall for your ceremony. The main hall, with its beautiful oak-beamed ceiling and traditional minstrels’ gallery, can comfortably seat up to 130 guests for an intimate celebration.

The Swallows Pavilion offers a stunning outdoor alternative for your ceremony, with the option to hold part of the service in the woodland. The Pavilion also offers a wonderful setting for an evening meal or relaxed barbeque.

Following the Swallows Trail, you will reach a photographer’s dream scene. With stunning countryside views stretching out into the distance, the tranquil spot provides the perfect backdrop for your all-important wedding photographs.

If you’re in need of additional space for your guests, we offer marquees as an extra. Available for your full reception or just for arrival drinks, the marquee adjoins to the Oast and comes complete with flooring, champagne lining, chandeliers and orangery windows. Since April 2018 Swallows Oast now has a Bridal Suite and Bridesmaid/ Makeup room as an added facility, so that the Bride and Groom can stay here in comfort

Your wedding breakfast will be provided by Capers Catering. Russell Webb and his fantastic team will create a delicious selection of dishes to suit your budget and personal tastes. All the dishes are created from fresh, locally sourced ingredients.

    We couldnt have wished for a better day

    To Mark & Staff,
    Thank you very much for all you did to make our wedding day so perfect. The venue is just beautiful. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, and a special thank you to the man who kept me (Liz) hydrated under my many layers in the heat! We couldn't have wished for a better day, I just wish we could do it all again. We are glad to see the arch & letters on Instagram, they look great in the woods. We are now looking forward to our honeymoon in Mauritius!
    love from Iain & Liz

    Wow! What a Fantastic Wedding Day!

    We cannot speak highly enough of Swallows Oast. We had the most perfect Wedding Day possible. From our initial viewing and then planning our special day, Mark and his team accommodated our every wish. We had free reign to decorate this beautiful venue, the weather was perfect although we had a marquee at the side for guests if it had rained and also some older guests retired there during the evening. All of the staff were amazing too.
    The food....oh the food, absolutely delicious, every single guest commented on the quality and presentation of the food, simply fantastic. Russell of Capers Catering is a chef who knows how to impress.
    Many guests wandered down the Swallows Trail and it offers superb photo opportunities along the way.
    If you are looking for a Wedding Venue that offers a relaxed atmosphere where your guests will be well looked after and speak about your special day for years to come, then this is it.
    Thank you Mark at Swallows Oast for exceeding all of our expectations!!
