Nestled down a quiet country lane, tucked in at the foot of The South Downs, The Secret Barn is a ‘proper barn’, on a proper farm. Full of charm, this unpretentious, authentic old threshing barn is the perfect setting for your laid back wedding. This is the quintessential rural Sussex idyll, complete with a paddock for camping, an orchard perfect for your ceremony, a lawn for daytime canapé-ing and night time toasting of marshmallows over the fire pit, there are even a few cows. Think trestle tables, garland lights, hay bales, star gazing, wild flowers, Darling Buds of May, Boho romance. The licenced Ceremony Barn, strung with fairy lights is a beautiful setting for a romantic wedding ceremony or wedding blessing.
The Secret Barn seats up to approximately 90 -110 guests for dinner, stands up to 150, and you are allowed up to 40 to camp. For more than 110 you will need a marquee. Petal and Feast are the sole caterers and florists. Please look at our FAQs for more information.
The Secret Barn will only be taking on a very limited number of bookings. We have no intention of turning this little slice of Sussex into a wedding factory. Every couple enjoys exclusive use of the site so you are able to relax, enjoy and appreciate it’s charm, without the feeling that you have to be out and cleared up for the next wedding on the conveyor belt.
