The staff at Old Down Manor were so helpful as the majority of our communication was via email as we live in Canada. They were very flexible with us and we did our food tasting a year before as that was when we were over to visit. They let us decide on our floor plan and were extremely knowledgeable and helpful and let us know what would and wouldn't work. The food was delicious and they were able to deal with a number of allergies that a few of our guests had. The facilities were outstanding.

We got married at old down manor on the 3rd September 2016 and the day from start to finish was absolutely perfect. We booked our venue 18 months before the day and the contact we had with Olivia was amazing. She was so helpful with every question we had, and even gave us suggestions for the day. I couldn't have asked for a better venue or a better team for my big day! Would definitely recommend to friends and family

The food was delicious, the staff decorated the venue beautifully, the staff were friendly on the wedding day, the location and stunning scenery surrounding the venue was outstanding (particularly the rose garden). Given the price of the wedding, the venue should have mended a broken window in the orangery prior to our wedding and the organisation on the day could have been improved (i.e., instructing guests to watch the cutting of the cake/first dance etc.)

The team at Old Down Manor were absolutely brilliant right from the start from before booking them to the day. They were brilliant at all my requests and able to accommodate them all. The pre-wedding meetings were really useful and help. In particular they were able to accommodate what we wanted for our wedding breakfast which was an Indian (slightly fusion) themed - the chef did an AMAZING job, everyone still speaks about it. The day itself went smoothly and the whole team had a smily face

We couldn't be happier that we chose to get married at Old Down Estate. The service was amazing, the food was delicious and our guests were absolutely blown away by the incredible building and views. I would be happy to recommend to anyone looking for a really memorable wedding day.

Everything about Old Down Estate was fantastic from start to finish and it will always be the most special place to us. The staff were so friendly and helpful, we were amazed that they always remembered us by name at their wedding fayres. They also went out of their way to accommodate our menu tasting when we couldn't make the organised events. The venue itself is stunning and always so clean and bright, we were so proud to invite our friends and family there for the most amazing day ever.
