As a family home only recently made available for weddings and events, Cissbury retains a very special atmosphere that is rarely found in venues. It has an imposing interior, but with a warm, friendly and welcoming character.
When you hire Cissbury you have exclusive use of the venue for the day of your wedding or event. The main reception rooms all provide stunning views towards Cissbury Ring. The sweep of the South Downs beyond provides the perfect backdrop.
In front of the house are three level lawns which are ideal for marquees. The house and grounds have many different aspects and unique features that can provide a wonderful location for memorable photos of your ceremony and celebration.
Less than a kilometre from the house, set high on the Downs and completely shielded by woodland, are our stunning suite of barns. For over two hundred years they have been at the heart of our sheep farming in Sussex, but are now being transformed into a unique and highly flexible venue for weddings and events. The secluded setting is an important part of the charm of the Barns, but they are also very accessible for all guests with dedicated parking for up to sixty cars. There are two large barns, both fronted by lawned yards that are surrounded by high flint walls. The adjacent lambing pens are an open fronted building that is now converted to become an informal bar and lounge area. There is even a Petanque court for boules. Large doorways connect all the spaces and make for really adaptable entertainment spaces – how you use them for your function is up to your imagination! Perfect for Civil Ceremonies and your Wedding Breakfast and evening party all in the same secluded space.
