wow what can I say, I cannot give enough praise to Lois and the team for making sure our day went without a hitch or any issues. Everything was so amazing and nothing was too much trouble. Our guests loved the fact we could stay the night before and everyone said how beautiful the venue was and had the best time. You truly made us feel so special and we thank you very much Mr and Mrs Ainsworth xx 14/06/2019
I really cannot fault anything for the most perfect day that was created by the venue. All our needs were catered for and the day was seamless ensuring that all bases were covered without any need for us to be involved on the big day. The open days leading up to the wedding were very useful helping us to make some decisions on the finer details and also have the opportunity to make some upgrades. All the food was perfect and this was commented on by a large number of the guests, along with the venue DJ who took our requests on style of music on board making for a great evening Dean Bonner 28/06/2019
My wedding day was perfect from start to Finish. The staff couldn’t of been any more attentive. The venue and grounds were beautiful. Food was incredible, all the guests were very impressed! We were both blown away with how great Kate was with not only the planning in the lead up but on how she guided us through the day! I wish I could do it all over again. We will always recommend Southdowns Manor to anyone looking for a great wedding venue. Megan White 29/06/2019
Just want to thank you again for making our wedding day so amazing! We honestly had the best day ever. Lia and the team were faultless, the wedding wouldn't have been what it was without Lia’s organisation and coordination so thank you so much. Venue, food and staff all outstanding would recommend Southdowns Manor every time. Richard and Jessica High
Southdowns Manor was the first venue we looked at and from the moment we stepped in, we were amazed by the team and the manor itself, in particular the fact we had exclusive use meaning the venue was completely ours. From the thousands of questions we asked and the millions of times we visited the venue, we could not have wished for better service. It really put our minds at rest to know how well we would be looked after on our wedding day. Prior to our day, Kate wowed us with her knowledge, patience and her ability to answer every single question we had without hesitation. Our wedding day was the most perfect day and this wouldn't have been possible without not only the entire Southdowns Manor team but especially Kate, nothing was too much trouble. She worked her socks off to ensure everything went smoothly and words can't even express how grateful we are to her. We would not hesitate in recommending Southdowns Manor to anyone getting married. It is the perfect place with the most incredible team. Thank you. Mr & Mrs Thatcher 18/05/2019
We done the 2 night stay for our wedding and it was truly amazing. All our guests commented how beautiful it was. We all thought the food was amazing same as the staff. We cannot as a couple fault Southdowns manor and all its staff and all the little extras. We would definitely recommend to any couple looking at this venue! Thank you everybody at Southdowns manor you made our day everything we could of asked for and more!! Charlotte Gainey 05/06/2019
We genuinely had the greatest day. We were promised so much and feel that our expectations were exceeded. The whole feel of the venue and the care and service provided helped make our day perfect. Mike & Helen 26/05/2019
We cannot thank you enough for helping us make our wedding day the best day our lives. From the moment we walked into Southdowns Manor, we knew instantly, this was the one! Lia was a wonderful events manager and walked us through the day, making us feel at ease and happy with everything. We adored the little touches such as the bath run and bubbly waiting for us in the honeymoon suite. We feel we could have had a little more direction and support the morning after with packing things up, but other than that, it was spectacular! Thank you Southdowns! x Rebecca & Liam Edwards 05/05/2019
Southdowns Manor was our 3rd venue choice, but on our first visit we fell in love immediately and knew it was the right place for us. It has a beautiful setting with gorgeous countryside surroundings and local to where both my husband and I were brought up it really tied everything together.
The whole process of booking, arranging, organising and paying for the wedding went so smoothly it really reassured me that everything was handled correctly and with a high level of professionalism.
Kate was our personal wedding planner I could contact directly with all my silly questions and amendments to the day and she was on hand on the day to ensure all the small details were perfect for us. It was nice to build that rapport with Kate so on the day I felt she knew me and how I wanted everything to be. Thank you Kate.
The food was outstanding and came in a generous helping, the staff ensured my Husband and I got some of the canapés during the busy periods and they even put some cake aside for us in our room. I heard great comments from my guests and for those who stayed enjoyed a full English the next morning.
The Venue as a whole is very luxurious and has been refurbed brilliantly. With the separate bars it gave guests a chance to sit and talk or join in and dance. The option of using the bedrooms as an add on package was a real help to us as we had travelling family.
We were treated so well by all the team, we were given some extra lil surprises and treats, they even ran my bath for me for when my guests left!!
Overall I'm thrilled with our day and really quite annoyed that I can't do it all over again!
I don’t even know where to begin! Everything about our wedding was incredible, in the months and weeks leading up to the day, our planner Kate was always a quick email away we felt so at ease from the first day we came to view the manor. So many guests loved the venue. A truly stunning setting in the middle of the South Downs made for stunning photos and a very relaxed environment. The whole team are so lovely and welcoming by the end of the day late felt more like a friend than our planner! I can’t fault any of them at all!! Thank you so much we didn’t want our day to end Becca and Stephen Yorke
