Full Description
Whether it’s the idyllic scenery or the quintessentially English setting, it’s clear why the South Downs National Park is a favourite location for wedding couples. A venue that continues to attract brides and grooms year on year is Southdowns Manor, a historical venue located just a few miles from Trotton, near Midhurst. This spectacular property was originally built in the late 19th century as a two-storey house by the Honourable John Jervis Carnegie. And while the manor has undergone many upgrades, it has carefully preserved its historical charm with elegant furnishings, open fireplaces and sweeping bay windows. Licensed for civil ceremonies, the manor offers a choice of locations for couples to exchange their vows. The Grand Banqueting Suite is popular for ceremonies of up to 150 guests, while the elegant Sussex Room and the Conservatory are perfect for more intimate occasions. During the warmer months, the outdoor gazebo offers a romantic setting on the Southdowns Manor lawns. The in-house chefs and wedding planning team work to the highest standards to provide decadent wedding breakfasts and evening entertainment. The manor also boasts 14 sumptuously furnished guest rooms, providing a luxe retreat following celebrations. With a warm and welcoming feel and a bespoke approach to service, Southdowns Manor places itself as an exclusive ‘home from home’ - all enhanced by the beauty of the surrounding National Park.

Many guests have also praised the food and service
Our wedding day was the best day of our lives. Thanks to all at southdowns manor, we were able to relax and really enjoy our day with our family and friends, knowing that everything was organised and sorted down to a tee by the Lia and the amazing team. We are so grateful for this and having Lia as part of our day was a pleasure. No task was too big and she was one step ahead of us always. She bonded so well with our guests and many people have commented on how lovely she is and so brilliant at her job. Many guests have also praised the food and service at the manor, again it all ran flawlessly and everyone’s needs were carefully catered for. Our ceremony and wedding breakfast ran seamlessly into our evening Reception and everyone had a fantastic time dancing the night away and using sparklers. The selfie mirror was very popular with our guests and we had many comments and great pictures from from it. We had a lovely stay in the honeymoon suite and enjoyed the bath very much! Our overnight guests found their stays very comfortable and loved the freedom the manor provided.We honestly can’t thank you enough for everything and want to do it all over again!

Well worth trusting them with the most special day
We cannot thank Natalie, Lia and all the staff at Southdowns enough. They really go out of their way to make your day as special as it can. It all runs so smoothly and there isn’t a single bit of stress, if something isn’t quite right they are on it straight away. Children loved the activity packs and all the games that were left out for them to play with and the adults said how welcome they felt, the food was amazing and rooms were great. We really cannot thank everyone enough well worth trusting them with the most special day of your lives.

The day itself was totally stress free
The whole process of viewing, booking and executing a wedding was completed to the highest standard, from every member of staff we met. The day itself was totally stress free, every possible detail was taken care of by Lia and the team, and as such, we had the most amazing day celebrating our marriage. So many guests have spoken to us and said they loved the venue and were blown away by the food, service and slick operation on show. We’d do it all over again (together!) in a heartbeat.Thank you so much.

I finally got to feel like a fairy princess.
The day was absolutely perfect! If anything went wrong, we certainly didn't know about it. It really was the most magical day and I finally got to feel like a fairy princess. The food was excellent, the staff were friendly, helpful and smiley, and this made our day even more joyful. To top it off we came up to find that amazing bath all ready for a drunken, jolly soak. Honestly, we could not have asked for better! We even had to take paracetamol because of our achy cheeks (from smiling all day) rather than an achy head. A final massive thank you to the whole Southdowns team! Georgie & Dale 29/07/2022
