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.

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.

We had the most amazing wedding at Ashdown Park Hotel in the summer of 2021, after having to postpone the day due to COVID. Tanya and the team were highly professional, and worked with us to ensure that we were still able to have the wedding of our dreams. The venue was absolutely stunning and the

We came upon Ashdown Park Hotel as it was near us, but also such a lovely venue on the website. We only wanted to do something small (given current circumstances), and therefore thought that having an overnight stay for us and our guests would be a lovely idea. Claire, who organised everything for

us beforehand, was just a pleasure to work with. She had many ideas and suggestions, when I hadn't even thought of many things. And even though it was small, it didn't feel like it. We had a registry service elsewhere, but when we arrived at the hotel, Iona (our events manager on the day) was ready and waiting with some bubbles for us, which was well received! We were swept into where we needed to be, and when we were busy outside with photos of our own, our wedding party was well looked after and all checked in. All of our rooms were lovely, and our room (especially) was just mind blowing. We felt like royalty. All the staff knew who we were, and we received so many congratulations. It was such a special day! We had a private dinner in the evening, which we really enjoyed. The food was delicious, and Iona and her team were there the entire time. The next morning when we arrived at our breakfast table, the hotel had organised it so that we could all sit together at one big table. Our flower display had been moved as well onto our breakfast table, so we could enjoy it a second time. We felt like our day was still in full force. We stayed an extra night, when our guests checked out, and our dinner that evening (as well) was just delicious. And we had yet another surprise, as the restaurant staff had 'congratulations' written in chocolate on our dessert plates. We literally felt like we owned the place, it was spectacular. I'd recommend Ashdown Park Hotel (and it's staff) in a heart beat. We enjoyed our wedding so much and they all played such a big part in that. We are very grateful to them all! :)
