Groomes Country House originally dates back to the 1600s, having laid derelict for 25 years was restored to its former glory in 2006. The character and history of the property can be felt throughout and has created a wonderful backdrop for weddings and events since. With landscaped gardens and views over our hay fields, this really is a beautiful location for your big day.
We are fully licenced for ceremonies and have a choice of two locations depending on the number of guests and your preference.
The Coach House - The outdoor option, can seat 140 guests outside. Couple inside the coach house which is open on one side and glazed on the other for stunning views towards the South Downs National Park.
The Garden Room - The intimate option, an oak structure with glass on 3/4 sides. Can seat 50 guests inside and is directly linked to the house. This can also be used for smaller weddings in their entirety.
Both these areas have a sound system available.
We are primarily a marquee venue which allows us to be very flexible with numbers and the design of the day. Every wedding we do is tailored to your vision and budget, so this makes it difficult to provide an accurate costing without talking things through. But does give you endless possibilities from the catering to the entertainment and beyond. We have built up very good relationships with local suppliers, but are always happy to meet new ones.
The house has 6 spectacular bedrooms, all with en suit bathrooms. There is capacity to sleep 16 people.
We would love the chance to show you around.
