Full Description
This venue brings sights of the South Downs National Park like no other lush green grass engulfing a lake and flours vibrant with every colour. Rustic with huge oak pillars; but magical with thousands of fairy lights like fireflies. Outside the stars take their place and you walk around feeling a warm glow from fire pillars and earthy smell of hay. But what really sets us apart are the people who run it, we take care of every stress, work with you to ensure you have everything you dream of and also show you things you may have never known existed. The place is beautiful, stunning and picturesque we know you will fall in love with it and away from distractions of life you will declare your love for each other.

More than we ever dreamed of
We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to have celebrated our special day. Southlands is just breathtaking, our guests were blown away with the stunning views and amazing venue. Phil, Jackie and the whole Southlands team are the dream team. Nothing was too much, they went over and above with their support to us as a family not just a couple. Because of their flexibility we were able to create our dream wedding with little to no stress. We honestly don't have enough words to express our thanks and appreciation

Everything we imagined
Southlands was the perfect setting for our day. Cannot thank Jamie and Phil enough for all the effort they put in to making our day just how we wanted it. They gave us recommendations for trusted suppliers we could use which took away the stress of planning. The friendliest team who made the whole day run seemlessly. Every part of the venue is stunning and makes for beautiful photos, especially the sunset over the lake.

Just beautiful!
So our daughter announced she was getting married in a month, as Southlands Barn had a cancellation! The boys at Southlands (Jamie & Phil) could not have been more helpful, their experience & professionalism from start to finish and sheer pride in their barn was second to none! With a beautiful setting, in stunning surroundings, what more could we ask for! A truly magical day we will never forget!! Thank you Southlands!!

Best Wedding Venue
There wasn't a single guest that didn't say how wonderful the venue was. The best wedding they had been to, beautiful location, lovely family run business. Almost tempted to renew my vows for the 1st year anniversary.. if that was a thing 🤔.

Perfect venue and perfect venue owners
We have known Phil and Jamie since the beginning of their journey in the wedding venue world. Coming to their first open evening. Originally due to be married in 2020 we delayed once due to covid then a second time due to a suprise bundle of joy! Every single step of the way they have been approachable, caring, understand and supportive. Phil ran our wedding day like a smooth well oiled machine. We received endless compliments from our guests. I just wish I could do it all over again!!!
