The venue hire fee is for exclusive use of Horsted Place which means that the house and gardens are all yours together with 20 double and twin bedrooms and suites and breakfast for 40 people the next day. The accommodation includes the wonderful Nevill Suite for the happy couple. 3 of the bedrooms are twin bedded mews cottages in the grounds. The price also includes full English breakfast for up to 40 guests and VAT. All other food and beverage is charged as taken. Most couples encourage their guests to book their own bedrooms at a subsidised rate and so recoup a substantial portion of the exclusive use fee making it a very attractive option.

Full Description
We have three areas licensed for wedding ceremonies: the intimate Library can seat up to 48 guests while the larger Terrace Room with French doors on to the wonderful gardens seats up to one hundred. Ceremonies can also take place outside on the lawn with guests seated in front of the Victorian style summerhouse where the register is signed - magical on a perfect summer's day. Throughout the year and whatever the season, the house and gardens provide a beautiful setting with flexible indoor spaces for less than perfect weather. In autumn and winter the house is warm and welcoming with log fires and soft lighting and in the spring the garden really comes to life at bluebell time.

Thank you
Just a quick note to thank you and all your staff for the Wedding Breakfast. My partner (Groom's mother) and I were absolutely delighted with the way it all went: the service, the food, the room – in fact everything was faultless. And the same appreciation was expressed by every guest.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Weddings at Horsted Place are all so special and unique it is hard to pick a favourite. We loved the one with a "garden-fete" theme in the summer - cream teas, lots of bunting, fun and games and a brilliant bride v groom team relay race in the paddock involving a top hat and a bridal veil! Christmas weddings are wonderful too when the house is beautifully decorated with real trees, log fires and candlelight - wonderfully romantic. One of the best named their nine tables after Santa's reindeer with Rudolph as the top table.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Don't forget to book the ceremony. It's surprising how often that needs a little prompt..............

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

It was at a wedding hosted by a family of keen beekeepers. The favours were beautiful little homemade candles in the shape of beehives and small pots of their own honey.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Charming, secluded, traditional, flexible, individual

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

There are numerous photo opportunities at Horsted Place - the photographers are spoilt for choice whatever the weather. I like the "aerial" group shots on the croquet lawn taken from the window of the Windsor Suite - they really showcase the beauty of the garden.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

We've had many celebrities here but I am not at liberty to say who........................we've been in Hello magazine a couple of times!

What’s your favourite canapé?

Deep fried crab balls

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

A great cheeseboard of local artisan cheeses with crackers, celery and grapes

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Our most unique feature is probably the fabulous staircase in the Long Gallery. It was designed especially for the first owner of the house by Pugin who also designed the House of Lords and it is stunning. It is wonderful for photographs.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

We are all very proud of the house and garden which are both beautiful and very special but the part of the business I am most proud of is the personal service and attention to detail given to all our engaged couples by our experienced and dedicated team
