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. It also has superb leisure facilities including an 18-hole, par 3, golf course and spa.
Ashdown Park has 106 beautifully appointed rooms and suites, each individually styled, including spacious master suites with four poster and king size beds, separate lounges and gorgeous views, which provide a luxurious retreat for wedding couples. We even have ground floor garden rooms that accommodate dogs so wedding guests don’t have to leave their four legged friends at home!
Ashdown Park is the perfect place to hold a memorable wedding, offering several options for ceremonies and wedding breakfasts from the beautifully converted chapel (the room below this is licensed for the wedding and the reception takes place inside the chapel), featuring stunning stained glass windows and working organ, to a licensed Summer House, overlooking the magnificent lake.
The hotel’s stunning setting offers a wealth of inspirational backdrops for photographs, including the lake with its cascading fountain and our secluded secret garden, which, although not licensed, you can have a blessing in.
Ashdown Park is licensed for civil ceremonies and partnerships and our superb rooms provide a wonderful atmosphere to create a really meaningful experience.
Attention to detail is our byword, from superb cuisine and wines to our dedicated team of staff with a wealth of experience in creating the perfect wedding.
We understand that every wedding is unique and no two celebrations are the same. In addition to totally bespoke and tailor-made weddings, Ashdown Park offers a range of inclusive packages that include everything needed for an outstanding reception, and, whatever you choose, our dedicated wedding planner will be on hand every step of the way.
Pre & Post Wedding arrangements – As weddings aren’t just about the big day itself, we can offer you a host of ways to celebrate your forthcoming nuptials or post wedding events with friends and family.
We can stage themed weekends and short breaks with activities such as spa days, country pursuits or even llama walking! Alternatively you may wish to start the wedding celebrations early with a champagne afternoon tea, drinks reception or private dinner for family and friends the day before.
The day after you say ‘I do’, relive the memories of the day with a champagne brunch for the wedding party in a private dining room.
These are just a few suggestions and we would be delighted to tailor special packages to suit your individual needs.
