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 or 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.
