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

Most incredible Venue and Family
Louisa, Jane, Philly and Kirsty were the most incredible venue suppliers I could have asked for. They supported me every step of the way and the venue itself was everything I dreamed of. Secret Garden was my favourite film as a child and I felt I was there for my wedding thanks to this venue. Fully flexibility on how I wanted to have the layout and decor, full support in the lead up and throughout the day itself. Can’t thank you all enough. I highly recommend having your wedding, reception, party or any special event at this venue.

Magical!
Everything about our day at Highden was absolutely spectacular – with the breath-taking walled garden making the day feel truly magical. Jane, Louisa & Kirsty couldn’t have been more helpful in the lead up and the day. A true hidden gem of Sussex that won’t be forgotten by me, my husband or wedding guests for years to come!

The most incredible views!
We hired cowdown field for our wedding reception and we couldn’t have asked for anymore. Louisa and the family were absolutely fantastic to deal with, we had postponed the wedding twice due to covid and they were incredibly flexible and understanding. It has a very relaxed feel and they did everything they could to ensure our day was what we wanted and ran smoothly. The venue has the best views in Sussex which make for the perfect back drop to an outdoor wedding! Thank you highden!
