Dorset House

Located in the stunning West Sussex landscape, Dorset House is a beautiful barn wedding venue, well placed in the picturesque British countryside close to the villages of Bury and Pulborough.

  • Rustic, romantic and charming
  • A unique Amphitheatre for outdoor blessings
  • 40 acres of medieval gardens

Rustic, romantic and charming, Dorset House is a hidden gem in West Sussex. Surrounded by scenic countryside, yet easily accessible from Chichester, Worthing and Horsham, it is a much sought-after wedding venue in the South of England.

A superb rural venue, Dorset House is a breathtaking place to exchange vows and celebrate any wedding; from the historical Tudor barn, the unique Amphitheatre for outdoor blessings and 40 acres of medieval gardens, it is magical and memorable.

Offering weddings with a wonderful view, The Great Barn is a striking building. The entrance to the barn is magnificent with ancient steps leading up to an impressive brick and wooden arch, highlighting the barn’s grandeur.

The barn itself comprises two adjoining areas; the Inner Barn is more like a hall than a barn with a central log fireplace, polished wooden floors and windows overlooking the West Sussex countryside. The Inner Barn is ideal for civil ceremonies. The Outer Barn is traditional in style with white walls and timber beams, and benefits from direct access to the adjacent Lower Garden which enjoys tranquil terraces down to the river.

Within the grounds of this luxurious venue is the amazing Amphitheatre, a remarkable place for an outdoor blessing. Couples can wed while guests watch on seated on the stone terraces.

The gardens at Dorset House are glorious; luscious lawns, mature trees and fabulous floral displays. On one side of the manor house is a pretty Walled Garden with medieval steps, which makes for a fantastic backdrop for wedding photographs.

Dorset House is a delightful wedding venue in West Sussex; a stunning building and picturesque gardens set amongst idyllic rolling countryside.
