Our wedding day was perfect.
We had our wedding here on Friday in the Walled Garden, the team were so helpful in finding us options and making our much smaller and more intimate wedding even more perfect than I could have imagined. All our guests had nothing but positive things to say about the day, the food was amazing, and they even brought us out a snake to have some extra special and unique wedding photos.

We couldn't have asked for a better day.
We had our wedding at The Barn on 24th August and I have to say, Lucy and the team and Old Down were just amazing. They made everything easy and were very accommodating. Nothing we asked was too much trouble. On the day, everything went exactly as we wanted it to and we didn't have to worry about a thing. All our guests said how great the venue, gardens, food and staff were. We really couldn't have asked for a better day.

The day was amazing and everything went perfect.
We would like to thank Joey and everyone at Old Down for their help with our wedding. The day was amazing, everything went perfectly and ran smooth from start to finish. Would definitely recommend Old Down for an amazing venue. The barn area looks great and private access to the walled garden areas made sure there was plenty of space and entertainment for the kids.
