Venue Overview

Ashdown Park, Wych Cross, Nr Forest Row East Sussex

Ashdown Park Hotel & Country Club is a beautiful country house hotel set at the heart of the Ashdown Forest in East Sussex. Set in 186 acres of landscaped Sussex countryside, it is surrounded by immaculate lawns, secret gardens, lakes and woodland trails.


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.

We booked our venue in 2019 and since then Ashdown has been amazing. Our wedding was originally booked for 2021 but due to covid we had to postpone. Ashdown couldn't do more for us and kept in touch with us all the time. Our wedding coordinator, Milly, was absolutely lovely and amazing she was very

efficient with responding to emails and nothing was ever too much. She listened to and answered all our questions leading up to the big day. Milly contacted our suppliers and took so much pressure off of us, I felt really relaxed coming up to the day! The team were amazing on the day and the toastmaster was a great addition who helped get people organised for the photos and direct them to where they should be. The food was absolutely amazing (as always) and the venue is just so beautiful and has the wow factor! Definitely wish we could do our day again as it went by too quickly! Our room for the night was also lovely and the personalised robes were such a lovely touch (I had always wanted an Ashdown dressing gown!)
Can't believe it is all done now, but would love to do it all again! Ashdown were amazing throughout and couldn't have asked for a better day.

From the first call to enquire about our wedding through to the day itself the friendliness and professionalism of the staff shone through.
We had every confidence that our wedding would be delivered how we wanted it, and we were not disappointed. The attention to detail and the responsiveness of

staff to changes in advance and during the day meant that everything ran smoothly and in a completely stress free way.
All our guests commented on the beauty of the surroundings, the quality of the food and the friendliness of all the staff.
We had a wonderful day and would not hesitate to recommend the hotel to others looking for a wedding venue.

Having our wedding at Ashdown Park was the best decision we made!!! The location is perfect and the venue is beyond stunning. We had a Christmas wedding and the venue looked absolutely magical!

I cannot stress enough how good the customer service is at Ashdown Park. Everyone was lovely,

friendly, professional, efficient and polite. We felt that everyone went out of their way to make it a magical time for not just us, but all our friends and family. Although the venue did the majority of decorating, I wanted to do a bit of setting up myself on the night before the wedding. The staff even came in at 11:30 pm to see if we were okay and told us they were there for us if we needed anything! I was so impressed to have someone prioritise customer service at nearly midnight!

Everything from planning to the wedding day was a very smooth ride and I do believe a lot of that is down to how great of a team is at Ashdown. I really can't recommend them enough!

The biggest of warm thank you to Lucy, for her warmth and compassion in making our day so very special.
Although small in numbers, six, you made our day feel 600 guests, and focused on us all from arrival too
when our day finished never leaving us throughout our day.
I was so nervous, but you

were there to support me and such kind words that I will treasure for ever.
The afternoon cream tea and drinks were perfection, along with all the flowers and room beautiful arranged even the rose petals on the floor.
Thank you again, you made our day so special .
We can’t wait to return New Year’s Eve.
Janet & Andreas
