The Great Barn at Dorset House is located in the village of Bury. Originally built in the 1500's, this is a beautiful venue steeped in history and set in 40 acres, with views over the River Arun. The Great Barn is constructed from half hammer beams with a purpose built dance floor, open log fire, and massive doors opening on to the gardens - perfect for summer or winter weddings. The Lower Garden adjacent to the Barn, has a beautiful pond, edged with willow trees and gently sloping terraces leading down to the river. A unique feature of the venue is the Amphitheatre, which makes an attractive setting for an outdoor blessing. Together with the medieval walled garden, the Great Barn at Dorset House is a beautiful venue for your special day. The venue can accommodate up to 260 guests and is licensed for civil ceremonies.
