Set on a working farm in the beautiful West Sussex countryside, Southend Barns has been lovingly restored. Surrounded by stunning landscaped gardens and peaceful courtyards, it offers a magical setting for your wedding celebrations. 
The courtyard lies at the heart of the venue with its luscious lawn, well-kept pots and Cornish slate patio – a lovely spot for drinks and mingling. As evening falls, the gardens are romantically lit to show off the fantastic flint and log walls of the barns. 
The in-house catering team, Roots, have launched some fun informative menu-tasting evenings when you can sample the canapés and main menu options. There’s also live music and plenty of wedding advice from suppliers.

Space to celebrate

  • The Dairy Barn boasts a wonderful 22-metre aisle, exposed beams and benches made of sweet chestnut (120 guests). It can also be used after the “I dos” for drinks or an entertainment room for children.
  • The Secret Garden is a hidden gem. Taking inspiration from the Dutch term gezellig, the garden is a celebration of togetherness, comfort and enjoyment and is an idyllic spot for your vows.
  • The Threshing Barn radiates rustic charm and offers plenty of space for dancing and entertaining, with vast windows across both sides (120 dining, 200 evening).
  • The Collecting Yard is where guests can gather on sumptuous sofas around fire pits to enjoy the perfect end to a perfect day.
  • Milking Parlour can be used as the groom’s quarters or for the bride tribe’s preparations. Couples can also use the suite for privacy during the day or to stay the night should you wish.
