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

Perfect ambience
Great venue for a wedding in the Highden Walled Garden. Perfect ambience in this beautiful fold of the South Downs - plenty of space for drinks outside first, and then a superb meal in the marquee. And Jane and Richard Denman leave no stone unturned to provide superb service and an unforgettable wedding.

The most perfect venue
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 recommend it more. The nicest family, the best field and lots of wonderful memories.

Absolutely stunning
We performed at Highden Estate for a wedding last year and the venue is absolutely stunning! The walled garden is a perfect place to celebrate and the Denman family are all so lovely and welcoming! We would highly recommend Highden Estate! Soph & Simon

Beautifully idyllic
Highden Estate is a beautifully idyllic venue for both weddings and functions. With the Denmans going above and beyond for all those who wish to visit, it is somewhere I can not recommend enough. A pristine yet welcoming feel to the entire venue, tucked away in the heart of the Sussex countryside.
