Set amidst the rolling Sussex Downs, Bartholomew Barn is a refurbished Grade II listed barn. A haven of tranquility with contemporary features, it’s the perfect setting for your romantic, countryside wedding. We invite you to celebrate your special day with us, enjoying all that the barn and its magical grounds have to offer.
The barn has been fully restored using authentic materials yet has a modern and tranquil atmosphere. This is a very versatile space, providing a light and airy setting for your wedding reception, and is able to cater for intimate groups or large parties.
In Spring, the woods behind the barn are carpeted with bluebells and the pretty courtyard gardens are full of colour year round and perfect for your wedding photographs.
From the scenic drive down the country lane to the entrance of Bartholomew Barn you will be totally captivated by this venue's idyllic setting. The warm, friendly personality of Frances, the venue owner, is always much appreciated at this relaxed rural wedding venue. If you are looking for flexibility then look no further.
Your barn is beautiful and the flowers and courtyard pond was what sold it for us! Wish we could do it all over again.

Josie and Mark
Mark's proposal to Josie was a total surprise! After waking up to a room full of bubbles, going for a walk to watch the sun rise and having lunch in Havana in Brighton where they went on their first date, Mark then drove Josie to Shoreham airport - pretending to get lost.
