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.

Choose from a selection of enchanting wedding packages tailored to suit your unique style and preferences. Our silver package offers timeless elegance, while the gold package exudes opulence and sophistication. For an extravagant affair, the platinum package is the perfect choice, leaving your guests in awe.

If you prefer a more intimate celebration, our intimate package is thoughtfully crafted to create cherished memories with your closest loved ones. For those seeking a private and romantic escape, our elopement package is a match made in heaven.

Embrace the magic of winter with our winter wishes package, where the allure of the season adds an enchanting touch to your festivities. If you're looking for a serene and beautiful ceremony, our ceremony-only package offers a seamless experience.

Finally, for those seeking to reaffirm their love and commitment, our vow renewal package allows you to relive your special day and cherish your journey together.


At Ashdown Park Hotel, we are devoted to bringing your wedding dreams to life. Our expert team will guide you through every detail, ensuring your day is nothing short of perfection. Let us be a part of your love story, as we create memories that will last a lifetime.

All elements of the day were excellent.
Milly and Dylan were excellent, our day and evening ran so smoothly and we can't thank them enough. They were really able to help create a day that at one point was just in our imaginations and we will be eternally grateful.

You was absolutely amazing from when we first met you all the way to the day. Nothing was too much trouble and you always had great ideas. You accommodated our dog Buster so well and made sure he was involved with ease. I never felt stressed planning our wedding, I actually really enjoyed it and

that was down to you.

Steve, the toast master was incredible! If you was born to do a job, Steve was made for that. He was so lovely and felt like part of the family, I loved him. He told you exactly what was happening next and made you feel at ease at every step.

Ashdown Park staff, were so lovely. Everytime we came, they were so lovely but on the day they gave that extra smile and kind words. You always feel so welcomed at your hotel and we are so excited to celebrate with you every year and relive our special day.

Dylan was amazing and had incredible attention to detail on the decoration of the room. It was beyond my expectations. He was so calm and collective even when there were people who maybe had a bit too much to drink. He dealt with it very professionally.
Also I loved the espresso martinis for me, I'm not a big drinker and loved my little drink for me.
Everything was so easy to pick up in the morning and put away with so much care.

Thank you to everyone in your team. Being in hospitality is never easy but I thought your team did a brilliant job.

Love from
Gaby & Pat
