we saw the Harry Clarke room it had the wow factor and it did not disappoint on the day. We would thoroughly recommend anyone to use Ashdown Park Hotel as their wedding venue! Thank you for helping making our day perfect!

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.

From the moment we first contacted Ashdown Park, the communication was absolutely second to none. Our coordinator, Sara was so quick to respond whenever we had a query and couldn't have been more helpful! The venue is simply stunning, and our guests were absolutely amazed with it's beauty on the

day. It really made it extra special for us. Being such a unique venue, it really was the only place we wanted to hold our wedding. We were lucky enough to view it first and we quickly decided that nowhere else was going to come close. The service on the day was amazing. Everything ran to time, which was ensured by all of the staff and the toastmaster. On the day we had 2 coordinators to ensure that we have a point of contact at all times if we needed anything. We had so many positive comments from our guests for the food. They were extremely accommodating for anyone with dietary requirements for the wedding breakfast, and even provided Gluten free canapés which we didn't even request so that was a lovely touch!

The venue arranged a private breakfast room for us the morning after the wedding, which was so lovely for all of guests to enjoy, they also put a note under each of their doors the night before to ensure they knew where it was. We also stayed an extra night, and the following morning they had reserved us a table for breakfast with our name on a place card, this was SUCH a lovely touch and we appreciated them doing it without us even asking!!

All of our guests loved the accommodation, and being able to have the ceremony and the reception in one place really makes this such an ideal venue. It is ideal for an indoor or outdoor wedding as there are so many different spaces available to use which are all equally beautiful. The venue are extremely good at recommending exactly what will work best, but are also very flexible with any requests which you may have. All in all, I cannot recommend it enough! Great staff and a truly WONDERFUL wedding we will never forget!!

Where do I start? I first fell in love with Ashdown Park at a wedding Fayre back in march of 2017 and called my now husband crying to say how perfect it was. 4 weeks later, and we booked our dream wedding. And from the moment we booked it to the part where we were clapped into our reception as a

newly married couple, I cannot fault the seamless and effortless service of all the staff at Ashdown Park Hotel. Our highly dedicated, and extremely patient, wedding co-ordinator Sara could not have done enough for us! She helped organise pretty much EVERYTHING for us. From menu tasting, to rooms for guests, to printing off my wedding vows the morning of the wedding. She has been an absolute joy to have help with our wedding and we couldn't have asked for a more knowledgeable, understanding, supportive and dedicated co-ordinator. All the staff at Ashdown were extremely helpful with getting everything organised to day before the wedding, helping to store our bouquets, wedding favours, table names and so on. I cannot fault a single part of our day, even down to the toastmaster keeping everyone in check, he made everyone smile! I would absolutely highly recommend Ashdown to anybody who is looking for the perfect venue. Its picturesque grounds, beautiful lakes and timelessly historic buildings make for the perfect and ideal scene for any wedding photos. Thank you to every member of the Ashdown Park team who helped to bring our perfect day together and making our dreams come true.

Ashdown Park Hotel helped to create the wedding of our dreams. You never really know how everything will piece together until the day comes, but we were able to let go, forget and enjoy ourselves to the full as our wedding coordinator, banqueting manager and toast master had everything in hand. In

the week leading up to the wedding, I was full of nerves, although our meeting with Sara (wedding coordinator) soon reassured us that everything was ok. Where possible we were helped with all the requests that we had - pop up bars upstairs, our choice of food and any special room requests for guests who needed better accessibility. We were fortunate to have a beautiful day and from start to finish the hotel staff truly excelled themselves - all the waiters and waitresses I never fully had a chance to meet, the chefs behind the scenes, the room maids, bar staff, receptionists and concierge. My friends and family two weeks later are still talking about the wedding and were astonished by how beautiful the venue was - many referring to it as a fairytale wedding. The wedding breakfast matched fine dining restaurants in London and the presentation of the tables were immaculate. I couldn’t help but feel like the happiest bride alive seeing the venue in all its glory, it was everything I could have imagined. The hard work of all staff involved meant the day and evening ran like clock work; they were polite, efficient and experienced. Our wedding coordinator was a brilliant listener and I never felt as though I needed to repeat any fine details. On the morning of the wedding, she finalised all the tables, received an order I was waiting for and pieced everything together for us - completely fulfilling our expectations. I can’t thank you enough for putting together the best day of our lives, we were also impressed with your recommended suppliers - Darren Charles (photography), cut above (videographers) and P.Williams (DJ) were fantastic. Thank you Ashdown Park x

Incredible venue, super great event management team and very friendly banqueting staff. We had a perfect day.

Sara Hewitt, she's professional, has attention to detail, patient and efficient! Without her, the wedding wouldn't have been that smooth and flawless! We are so pleased that this dog friendly hotel allowed our beloved little westie join us all day long both indoor and outdoors, even having a seat during the wedding breakfast lol.
Thank you again and we will be back for our anniversary celebrations next year :)

We had our wedding last week at Ashdown Park and I can honestly say the staff and Sara our wedding co ordinator made it so special for us!
From when we first booked our wedding Sara was so helpful with everything, there was nothing that was too much for us!
She made our day so relaxed and we

didn't have to worry about anything as she had it all covered!
She helped organise the children on the day (which is a task with my kids!) but she made it all so effortless. Throughout the wedding planning she was always there to call or email if ever I needed to ask anything or needed help with anything, I honestly think we wouldn't have been able to do it all if it wasn't for Sara and all her help.
She is the best!
We had our wedding on the hottest day of the year which was a tad hot for me in my dress, but the staff were so helpful making sure I had enough fans around to cool me down they made me feel like a princess for the day and I am so grateful for all of their efforts.
The staff at Ashdown take so much pride in their jobs and you can definitely see that!
Our wedding day was the best day and it was all down to the people at Ashdown Park, I cannot thank them enough, I wish we could do it all again, it will truly be a day we will never forget, thank you everyone x

Ellie was superb from start to finish. Throughout all planning she was extremely Attentive and on the day she was there whenever I needed her – included when I immediately needed my dress drying from The rain. Thank you so much everyone!!! You made our day absolutely amazing!

Thank you to the whole of the Ashdown Park team for making our wedding run so smoothly, our guests cannot stop talking about how wonderful the whole day was.
Outstanding service.

Everything from the day we were shown around the venue, through supporting us with the planning and then the day itself was done professionally and with attention to detail but also with a very personal touch. The venue is a beautiful place to have a wedding and we were lucky enough to have good

weather and could make full use of the stunning grounds. Everyone commented on how lovely the venue was and the food which was excellent and catered to a number of dietary requirements without fuss or making those people feel awkward. We didn't have to worry about anything on the day as everything was carried out perfectly by the staff and adapted to whatever was needed. The high quality of service carried on the following day for breakfast with our guests in our own private room and we were delighted to see the flowers from our wedding breakfast tables set out on the breakfast tables too which was a nice touch. We can't recommend Ashdown Park highly enough.

We held our wedding reception at Ashdown Park in August 2015 and cannot speak highly enough about the venue or the staff. The converted chapel and surrounding grounds are highly impressive, helped by some glorious weather we were able to hold our drinks reception on the lawn and though there were

other guests in the hotel, we were made to feel as if we had the whole place to ourselves. The reception suite itself with the stained glass windows helps provide that extra wow factor during the meal and into the evening.

From our initial meeting through to the day itself, Lauren and her team were incredibly helpful, no request was too big or difficult to source and during the reception, Richard, his team and our Toastmaster helped ensure a smooth transition between each stage of the day and that we and our guests were all very well looked after. We would highly recommend Ashdown Park to anyone looking to hold their wedding there and will certainly be back for a visit again very soon!

We had our wedding at Ashdown Park Hotel on Saturday 29th August 2015. WOW! What can I say, right from the very beginning when we first attended Ashdown for a viewing with Lauren the wedding co-ordinator we knew just then how accommodating they would be. Nothing was too much trouble them, right from

the start to the very end of our wedding day. Scott & Richard who managed the whole day were absolutely terrific! There support, professionalism and expertise towards everyone was 10/10. Not forgetting all the hotel staff, chef's and waiters who helped make our day extra special. The food was outstanding, although we knew what to expect after our menu tasting- you certainly did not let us down!
Ashdown Park Hotel is the most stunning venue with beautiful grounds and surroundings of the Ashdown Forest. With the wedding ceremony and breakfast taking place in the former chapel that is part of the hotel, it made sure we set apart from other hotel guests, which is fantastic. It honestly felt like we had the whole hotel to ourselves for that day.

Some of our guests stayed the night before the wedding and mentioned how wonderful all the staff were to deal with. Myself (Bride) and Chief Bridesmaid were upgraded to a beautiful suite to start of our experience with Ashdown Park.

The whole day itself, went so smoothly- i couldn't imagine we could have done it without the support and help of your whole team there at Ashdown. From the toastmaster to the hotel staff, and Lauren our wedding co-ordinator. It truly was the most magical day of our lives. I would certainly recommend anyone who is looking for the wow factor venue to visit Ashdown Park Hotel.

So to everyone there who helped with our special day, THANK YOU. And a massive thank you for our personalised dressing gowns, which were there to greet us in wrapped ribbon in our bridal suite the night of our wedding. What a lovely surprise! You defiantly made it official then!

We were very well looked after at Ashdown Park from the word go by the lovely Lauren and the events team. Lauren was always on hand to help with any questions we had & to help us source anything we needed to help make our big day extra special.
The venue itself is stunning & very impressive, as

were the guest rooms & bridal suite... There are deer on the grounds & a lovely lake & fountains where we had a lot of our photos taken.
The chapel area with the tall stained glass windows made sure our wedding was one to remember - the room looked amazing & topped with a live band & great food, the day was all we could have wished for. Our wedding breakfast & evening buffet with loads of cheese & biscuits, mini burgers, mini fish & chips, mini hot dogs etc were delicious & our guests loved it!
I recommend Ashdown Park to other brides & can honestly say the service, food, grounds etc were all excellent. As soon as we drove into the grounds we knew it was the venue for us :-)

We had our Wedding and Recception at Ashdown Park in the Chapel March this year. The venue is absolutely stunning and the staff ensured that everything went as smoothly as possible.
We would like to thank the chef for the very tasty food. We had great comments from our guests especially about the

We shall definately be coming back again!

We had a fantastic day in December at Ashdown for our small family gathering of 15.
The added attraction of the Christmas decorations added to the lovely setting just made the day more special.
Working with Lauren and the team to make the arrangements was very easy and on the day everything worked

like clock work. All the staff involved were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble, everybody agreed that they did an outstanding job.
Ashdown made our special day one to really remember for all the right reasons.

My husband and I got married on the 16th August 2014 at Ashdown Park Hotel. Planning with the hotel was wonderful. They have a team of really professional members of staff who were willing to help and support us throughout the whole process. On the day the team were fantastic at setting up the

venue and ensuring everything ran smoothly. I had organised a surprise band for my husband and the staff were extremely helpful in greeting the band and making sure that my husband was unaware of them until they started playing after the ceremony.
The hotel provide you with recommended suppliers which was extremely helpful.
We and all of our guests had the most amazing time and would highly reccomend this venue!!

If you are looking for the "perfect" wedding venue then I can not recommend The Ashdown Park Hotel and their staff enough! We held our ceremony and the reception in the Richard Towneley Suite. This is the converted chapel and it is absolutely stunning. This suite houses the ceremony room, the

Read More

wedding breakfast chapel room and its own bar. Its totally self contained and apart from the hotel (but still accessible via a corridor to the hotel, if its raining) so you don't have to worry about other hotel guests walking in to your wedding reception. The bar is ran at pub prices too, which was a big plus in our book. The food is exquisite and there is plenty of it.
We had 135 people for the ceremony & wedding breakfast and a further 50 guests in the evening. Everything from day one of booking our wedding, to the day after our wedding ran like clockwork. This was all down to the very experienced staff, not just Lauren & Richard and their team who were exceptional, but also the reservation, concierge, housekeeping, kitchen and waiting staff. They all know their jobs and everyone was so helpful and not at all pretentious (like so many other hotels) which made all the bridal party and our guests feel very relaxed.
Approx 80 of our guests stayed overnight and Lauren arranged for us to have a private breakfast the next day which prolonged our time spent with family members who had traveled from all over the world.
Our guests have not stopped commenting on our wedding day and we have had so many people say it was the best wedding they have ever been to. The venue, staff and hotels recommended suppliers are all top notch. If you want a wedding that you and your guests will remember forever then this is the venue for you. We couldn't have wished for a more perfect day and have already booked to return for our first wedding anniversary! Thank you to everyone at The Ashdown Park for making our wedding magical and beyond our wildest dreams. Mr & Mrs James!

We recently held our small intimate Wedding at Ashdown Park, and couldn't have wished for a better day. The Staff in Particular Lauren Peters were wonderful in helping us to arrange our day just as we wanted. The food was amazing and everyone really enjoyed themselves. With such a beautiful

location it would be easy for the Hotel, to provide a wedding without such an effort, so its great to have the best of both worlds. A special thank you to Lauren for the personal attention I received on my day, and helping me to re-arrange a few last minute problems.

We will definitely be returning for our 1st wedding anniversary, as this was the place where the proposal happened, so Ashdown has a place in our hearts.

We had our very intimate (15 guests) wedding at the Ashdown Park Hotel on June 28th 2014 and we couldn't have asked for anything more! From the initial meeting with Lauren (wedding co-ordinator) we found her to be helpful and accessible, and she and her team did a fantastic job on the day. The venue

is beautiful and the Jakob-Henniker Suite where the ceremony and wedding breakfast were held is a lovely room with lots of light, and although the room is next to the main hotel entrance you would never know it once inside. The gardens are amazing and the perfect setting for photos, we were able to use the walled gardens and also have some pictures taken by the lake in front of the fountain. We would definately recommend the Ashdown Park Hotel to any prospective couple planning their big day!

Perfect venue with amazing staff who will happily go the extra mile to make your day an incredible memory. Can't fault them at all!

The Ashdfown Park Hotel is an absolutely beautiful hotel, the grounds are perfect for a Wedding Day. We had a fantastic experience from the day we decided to wed there. We went for the intimate package (39 of us in all). Lauren in Events and Richard and his team who were with us on the day were

brilliant. Nothing was too much for them. To have our Champagne and Canapes in the Secret Garden started our party off so well. The wedding breakfast was delicious and all of guests had a thoroughly wonderful day. We had approx. 20 guests stay the night and we were given a private dining room for our breakfast the next morning which rounded our special day/weekend off completely. I would highly recommend this venue and trust the Team's expertise in the perfect running of your special day.

Our photographer commented that he had probably never been to such an attractive venue, he found the grounds stunning, perfect for a Bride & Groom to have photographs taken in.

Thank you Richard, Lauren and team for making our Wedding Day a wonderful day to remember.
