A stunning Manor House
We used Highley Manor for the wedding reception of our son and daughter in law. Set in beautiful Sussex countryside the location is superb. We had a wonderful time, the service was excellent and all of our needs including dietary needs and allergies were dealt with brilliantly. It is a stunning Manor House to stay in and the rooms are all comfortable and individually styled and decorated. Nothing was too much trouble and Debbie our wedding organiser ensured everything went smoothly. A great experience, highly recommended.

Love Highley Manor
An amazing venue for our daughter and son in laws wedding on 6/11/21. The whole team were fantastic and a big thanks to Abbie for being so attentive and helpful throughout the wedding. Highley Manor is a hidden gem nestling peacefully in the Sussex countryside The hotel was taken over late in 2020 and reopened as a wedding venue early summer 2021. Since viewing Highley Manor in April this year we couldn’t believe the total transformation - which is still ongoing. Thanks to the chefs as all food was amazing. Thank you again for making our daughter's wedding so so special. Love Highley Manor.

Magical wedding in a magical venue
The venue is beautiful set in stunning grounds. The staff will literally bend over backwards to help you from cake re-sculpting, shoe repairs, dealing with annoying food fussy people (me, the bride) to name but a few. They really do go out of their way to make you feel super special and your day to go as smoothly as possible.

Luxurious venue, amazing value.
How many brides enter their wedding with one anxious thought hanging over them..."this is so expensive, how am I going to afford to get married. I want it to be the best day of my life." I went into our wedding preparations with the same thoughts, and just a £5-£7k budget for the whole event. We visited highly manor up a winding country road and on to their private courtyard. It is an impressive house, and in first impressions I thought it would be far out of budget. Inside and outside it was immaculate, with lovely hanging baskets and perfectly mown lawns. The three main members of staff each had different roles that completed each other...we were made to feel so welcome with nothing being too difficult. We told them our budget, and rather than laugh and say there was no way they could accommodate us, they did the opposite. They allowed us to have the cheapest possible rate, giving complementary drinks and canapes on arrival. They allowed us to have the house the afternoon before the wedding at no additional cost, and felt like family by the end of the day. We stayed well within our budget, and that was after flowers, dresses, food, rolls Royce car, cake and photography. That just shows what a brilliant price highley manor was!! Thank you to everyone there, it was a truly special day. X
