Venue Overview

Cowdray Park, Midhurst, West Sussex

Nestled amongst the rolling hills of the South Downs National Park, sits Cowdray House along with its 110-acres of Capability Brown designed gardens, 22 luxurious bedrooms and opulent reception rooms. This is a truly magical location to host your wedding or celebration.


Whether you are planning an extravagant weekend-long celebration for up to 150 or a more intimate affair for 15 guests, we guarantee that you and your guests will leave with memories that will last a lifetime.

Buck Hall with its vaulted ceiling, arched minstrels gallery and stained glass windows takes centre stage at the heart of the house, and is ideally suited to your wedding breakfast or ceremonies during the cooler months. 

Drinks receptions can be held out on the Terrace and on the beautifully manicured croquet lawn, with far reaching views over the South Downs or in two elegant reception rooms, the Library and the Drawing Room. Buck Hall, the wood-panelled Dining Room and the Summer Pavilion are all licensed for civil ceremonies. 

Cowdray House has 22 luxurious bedrooms and opulent bathrooms, with 110-acres of private gardens and parkland. Additional accommodation is available at the Lodge, which can accommodate 16 guests, along with four pretty holiday cottages that sleep 13. 

Guests at Cowdray can enjoy polo, golf, clay pigeon shooting and fly fishing, along with a variety of other country pursuits that are available on the extensive Estate. There are also some fabulous leisure activities to enjoy at Cowdray House including the indoor and outdoor swimming pools, billiards room, bowling alley, cricket pitch and croquet lawn.

together in just five weeks. The house and grounds are unbelievably beautiful with multiple Christmas trees and roaring fires in every room creating the perfect backdrop for a festive winter wedding. Jo took care of every little detail over the weekend and enabled us to have an incredible stay while feeling completely safe in these crazy times.

We’re already trying to find an excuse to rent the house again!

We arrived back in the UK after a wonderful three weeks of honeymooning yesterday and have been reflecting for the last few weeks on how great the wedding weekend was, with much of it thanks to you and the staff for ensuring everything ran so smoothly.
