Northease Manor

PLEASE NOTE WE ARE ONLY TAKING BOOKINGS AT THIS VENUE FOR 2023 ONWARDS (This is due to essential maintenance at the venue)

Northease Manor is set amongst the rolling countryside of the South Downs and dates back to the 17th century. The Manor House is a Grade II listed building, and today is home to independent Northease Manor School. With its historical Tudor Barn, and Sussex flint exterior, its rustic charm shines from the moment you arrive.

The fascinating history and charming character of Northease Manor make it a perfect venue for a wedding ceremony or reception venue. If you’re looking for an out of town location, which offers you the flexibility to create a truly unique event, Northease is a perfect choice; its only twenty minutes from the center of Brighton and five from the center of Lewes.

The Tudor Hall
Northease Manor’s rustic Tudor Hall with its pretty, newly re-thatched roof is licensed for civil ceremonies for up to 110 guests (minimum 70 daytime adults), and is also the room where we serve the wedding breakfast.

We can provide solid wood trestle tables and benches for a rustic feel, or crisp white, floor-length linen for either trestle or round tables if you’d like a more elegant feel, it is really up to you -both are included in the venue hire.

The Tudor Hall at Northease is usually draped in white voile by one of our recommended Venue Stylists. You can go big or small on this, add fairy lights, lanterns and up-light any colour to bring a fairy-tale feel to the venue. Its truly a venue where you can bring your vision to life!

Beautiful grounds and stunning views
The grounds of Northease Manor include the stunning flint covered house, endless lawns and large trees, all of which make a beautiful backdrop for your photos.

The Rose Garden to the side of the building provides the perfect place for your welcome drinks and canapes, offering your guests the chance to enjoy the beautiful surrounding views of Sussex farmland and the rolling South Downs. There is a apple orchard for the most stunning photos and a play area for kids both big and small! We also include a free Capri marquee for the welcome drinks should the weather be inclement on the day, or as an outdoor shelter from the heat of the day.

Guests will be invited back into the Tudor Hall for the wedding breakfast, tea and coffee is served under the shade of the marquee once speeches have concluded. Bands and DJs are encouraged for a great evening party! Finish time is at 11pm at the venue, we only hold one wedding a week at the venue. 

Your bespoke wedding breakfast
We are the in house catering team at the venue -the meal itself can be designed by you with the help of Circa Executive Chef, Justin Gillam, who will talk through your tastes and influences, and any themes you may have for the day. Whilst this venue lends itself perfectly to a sit down meal, there are plenty of other options to explore if you’d like something less formal.
