Highden Estate Full Description
The Highden Walled Garden was built in the Victorian era and has been well maintained since. Stepping through the door into our secret garden you’re transported into serenity, the high walls provide a private and secure venue. Within the acre of space, a beautiful apple and pear archway runs up the middle over a pebble pathway, vines growing various berries and flowers including the climbing Lady Silvia Rose which was planted by the Denman’s in the early 1900s
The field offers a 20 acre picturesque blank canvas. Views across an unblemished landscape, ensure total privacy and seclusion, whilst offering you the best sights from the top of the South Downs National Park. It’s the perfect venue to dance amongst the stars
The Forest School is maintained by Garden Cottage Nursery. Due to its magical feel it has become an ideal venue for weddings and parties

My family and I have decided to share a few of our favourite spots on the estate to couples that would like to celebrate their special day.
We held our wedding reception at Highden on a beautiful sunny September day
It was our perfect venue as we wanted quite a traditional high-end English garden party feel, with live music all day and lots of food and drink! The walled garden was absolutely magical. We had so many compliments - our guests absolutely fell in love with the place and Washington! We could have easily been in the south of France that day, it was just idyllic.
The Denman family were so helpful and flexible. They really couldn’t have done any more for us. It was the perfect venue to make our own, and the whole day went off without a hitch. We are soooo glad that we had our wedding at Highden. THANK YOU!!!
Most beautiful Wedding venue
We were part of the most BEAUTFUL wedding day! The venue was stunning and allowed us to have our own touch on the venue. We loved the wedding so much and felt like we were in the south of France. Thank you to the Highden Team.

Happy couple married in July
We got married at the Highden Estate at the end of July. It is truly the most beautiful space and we loved that we could make it our own. The Walled Garden is stunning, especially in the summer when it is in full bloom and everyone we've spoken to has commented on how beautiful it was. There are so many ways you could use the space and we loved having several options for where we could hold the ceremony.
Louisa has been fantastic all the way through, from first visiting Highden and booking, to the wedding day itself. Nothing has ever been too much trouble and she is so quick to respond to any communication. On our wedding day, both Louisa and Kirsty were amazing and helped the whole day run smoothly. They even stole us and our photographers away to capture some sunset photos at another spot nearby - we can't wait to get those photos back!
So many lovely updates to the Walled Garden have been made since we originally booked, which we benefited from, including the additional stretch canvas canopy in one section of the garden and the wooden decked flooring of the marquee.
A big thank you to Louisa, Kirsty and the Denman family for helping us have the most magical day!

The most perfect venue for our 'Festival' themed w
The most perfect venue for our 'Festival' themed wedding. From start to finish the Denman family were so helpful and they certainly help make our dream a reality. The Cow Field had the most wonderful views of the South Downs and the space was extraordinary. We were always in constant communication wth Philly and nothing was ever a problem. We hired fire pits, walk in fridge and tents from Highden, which made things easier for us. Seriously, if anyone wants to recreate what we did, I couldn't rec
