Located in the stunning West Sussex landscape, Bartholomew Barn is a beautiful barn wedding venue, well placed in the picturesque British countryside, close to the villages of Wisborough Green and Kirdford.

Rustic, romantic and utterly charming, Bartholomew Barn is a hidden gem in West Sussex. This luxurious wedding venue is surrounded by scenic country lines, yet is easily accessible from Petworth, Midhurst, Billingshurst and Pulborough.

A superb rural wedding venue, Bartholomew Barn is a breathtaking place to exchange vows; from the brick barn to the stylish Potting Shed and fabulous summer house, it is a most memorable wedding venue.

On arrival at Bartholomew Barn you are immediately inspired by the building; a fabulous brick and stone barn that resembles a traditional barn from a bygone era, yet benefits from floor to ceiling windows and doors, adding a contemporary touch. Standing proudly in rolling green fields and woodland, the barn is a stunning place to celebrate a wedding. Internally, the barn is chic and comfortable. It has exposed brick walls, oak beams and striking chandeliers, creating a romantic setting for both the ceremony and wedding breakfast. The full height windows flood the room with natural light while the doors open up into the courtyard, making the most of the open space at the venue. The huge wood burner located at one end of the barn ensures it is ultra-cosy during the winter months.

The Potting Shed is perhaps the prettiest potting shed in West Sussex. Stylishly converted, it is used as a dressing room for the bride and her bridesmaid to get ready in and sip champagne before the ceremony. It is also a special place for newly married couples to escape to, allowing them to spend some precious moments alone on their wedding day. A spacious room with en suite bathroom, the Potting Shed is quirky and unique.

Situated within the grounds of Bartholomew Barn is the summer house; a peaceful place for the couple to meet with the registrar ahead of the ceremony, and a charming, comfortable and quiet space for guests to go during the evening’s entertainment.

Bartholomew Barn is a delightfully rustic West Sussex wedding venue set in the midst of rolling green fields and woodland.

Testimonials & Gallery

  • We got married at Bartholomew Barn on 11th April, 2015. We knew it was the place for the us the moment we first visited, because this is a wedding venue that oozes charm and beauty and allows you the most serene and characterful setting to celebrate the life that you are starting together. The barn itself is unbelievably beautiful, set alongside an equally perfect courtyard and is perfect for allowing your guests to socialise together, retaining the intimate feel that we were looking for. Frances couldn’t do enough for us in helping us prepare, both before and during the day itself. It’s been a pleasure getting to know her and we cannot thank her enough for her laid-back, accommodating and fun-spirited approach. She played an enormous part in the success of the day, as well as her staff, especially Lucy. Our memories of the day are so filled of love and happiness and we wish all couples looking to marry here the same – we will never forget our day here.
