Congratulations on your engagement!

Ashdown Park Hotel is a hidden gem, nestled within 186 acres of glorious parkland at the heart of the Ashdown Forest in East Sussex, home to Winnie the Pooh and friends!

Set at the end of a sweeping drive, the Grade II listed mansion house has a choice of period rooms including a converted chapel with its stunning stained glass windows, beautifully landscaped grounds, and a lovingly maintained secret garden, which all conspire to make Ashdown Park one of the most romantic wedding venues in Sussex.

The Summer House, which stands in a quiet part of the lawn overlooking the lake, offers an altogether different kind of experience which is more informal and relaxed but no less romantic.

Couples are spoilt for choice when it comes to beautiful settings for wedding photographs. Seek out our beautiful Secret Garden, or a shady spot overlooking the lake, backlit by dappled sunshine streaming through the trees of the East Sussex countryside.

Ashdown Park is a magical location to get married whatever the season. Spring and summer bring sunshine, fresh leaves on the trees and lighter evenings whilst autumn and winter bring candlelight, frosty ground and the scent of cinnamon in the air. Whatever the time of year, there are a wealth of stunning backdrops for your photographs and your guests are guaranteed to be impressed at the magnificence of the hotel and its grounds as well as the impeccable service they receive.

From the very first moment we stepped foot in the grounds of Ashdown Park we knew that this would be the venue for us. The team at the hotel itself are always so helpful and polite and this goes a long way.
In terms of the events team, well we could not fault them one bit. Throughout our 20 months

planning, nothing was ever too much trouble. Even when we did differ on something the response was from a 'let's sort this out' attitude and everything was perfect. We initially had Ellie be our Event co-ordinator and she was fantastic. A year in she unfortunately left and Lucy Bueno was her replacement. At first we were nervous to have someone new be in charge of the most important day of our lives but after meeting Lucy we knew that we were in safe hands.
Nothing was too much trouble for Lucy and on the day she was fantastic. When my car arrived at the Hotel, Lucy was on hand with a glass of water and something that seems so small really helped calm the nerves at that point. Lucy was also fantastic in liasing with suppliers that I had booked along the way.
The day went off without a hitch and this is thanks to Lucy and Braiden. Braiden stayed until the very end and dealt with any small issues throughout the evening. The food was phenomenal and the waiting staff were polite and helpful.
We honestly cannot thank the team at Ashdown Park enough and we would love to do our day all over again!

gracious, welcoming and caring they looked after all our needs. The hotel was such a stunning venue, I was sad that the weather wasn't great for the day to be outside but it didn't matter because the converted chapel was so stunning our guests loved it. Thank you for helping us have an unforgettable wedding, with so many happy memories. Morag and Danny

Was a truly wonderful and magical experience the whole day went as smooth as anything couldn’t have gone any better. The staff were amazing and always on hand to help without needing to be asked but not intrusive and allow the guest mingle freely.

All I can say is absolutely outstanding. I can not praise enough Ellie, Brenden and all the staff that helped make my day the most magical day I could have ever hoped for. So professional from start to finish, nothing was too much trouble and the attention to detail was outstanding.

All I can say is thank you from the bottom of my heart for making our day, one we will never forget.
