Crabapple Barn

'A vintage caravan, s’mores over the fire pit, games on the lawn and fairy lights reflecting off the lake towards a breathtaking view. You couldn't want for a more perfect day'

Crabapple Barn is set on three beautiful acres, amongst apple trees, bramble-hedged fields, an old croquet lawn and pretty quarter-acre lake. You and your guests look onto an uninterrupted view that seems to encompass the entire South Downs - all the way down to the sea. We believe it is one of the finest views in Sussex! Every corner is a backdrop for stunning photographs, and we are surrounded by woodlands and fields.

Our beautiful Sussex Oak Barn is packed with character and ideal for WEDDINGS, VINTAGE AFTERNOON TEA PARTIES and our unique BoHo HEN PARTY PICNICS with a FLOWER CROWN WORKSHOP.

With room for up to 100 seated guests, a vibey industrial-style bar, cute vintage caravan in the orchard and a swing over the water, it's ideal for country style weddings and all life's special occasions.

We only host one event on any given date, and limit weddings to around six a year. This ensures you have our complete attention - and sole use of the entire venue. We also have generous access times either side of your event, so you can relax and take your time to enjoy the whole journey.  

New for late 2020 & early 2021 - With Govt. advice that smaller weddings may be permitted towards the end of this year, we are pleased to offer our beautiful wedding barn, full heated and decked out with seasonal greenery for the ultimate festive wedding celebration! A themed Medieval Feast? An intimate Candle-Lit Reception Meal? Or why not have the ultimate New Years Eve All-Glammed-Up Cocktail Reception?  Contact us for more information.

Why not check out our Gallery page, full of past celebrations that we've already loved sharing.

Our 5* Google reviews reflect the care we give to every one of our lovely couples. We'd love to show you around!
