The beautiful rustic barn venue, near Petworth, is set in stunning Sussex countryside, providing an idyllic setting for your rural romance.
The venue provides you with all your need for your special day in one place. You can hold both your civil ceremony and reception at the venue, indulge in delicious food, and enjoy your own private retreat in the potting shed. This pretty space, complete with a bathroom, is also ideal for you and your guests to use throughout the day to refresh yourselves.
Full of natural beauty
One thing you’ll love about Bartholomew Barns is its natural beauty. In the spring, you’ll find a blanket of gorgeous bluebells adorning the setting and gardens full of floral delights. While in the cooler months the landscape looks equally stunning, with rich, warm autumn leaves on the trees and glistening frosts.
The perfect civil ceremony
Your civil ceremony will be held in our romantic, restored barn. The old brick walls and countryside location give the barn an intimate and relaxed feel, perfect for you and up to 100 guests.
Your charming drinks reception
After you’ve said ‘I do’, your guests will be able to exit the barn through the double doors, which lead out onto the courtyard. With its pretty fishpond and countryside views, the courtyard is a fabulous place in which to enjoy your drinks reception. Suitable for any season, you’ll find umbrellas providing shade for sun drenched days and patio heaters for those crisper autumn and winter afternoons. If you’d prefer to hold your drinks reception in a marquee, we’d be more than happy to accommodate your request.
A barn fit for a feast
Your wedding breakfast will be served back in the gorgeous barn, where there is seating for up to 100 wedding guests. For larger guest numbers, we also have a marquee available which can adjoin the barn and seat a further 100 guests.
A smaller open sided barn that runs the length of the courtyard is also available for use throughout the day. It makes a great spot for hog roast, or perhaps setting up a photo booth or creating your own whisky and cider bar at night.
