The Setting

An outdoor, relaxed, rustic, romantic lakeside location.

Duncton Mill Fishery is regarded as one of the finest waterside venues in West Sussex available for wedding reception hire, the stunning lakeside location nestled at the foot of the South Downs is enough to inspire you and creates the perfect backdrop to your celebrations.

Their location is superb, being an easy commute from London and Brighton, situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty near the A285 (4 miles south of Petworth and 7 miles north of Chichester).

The Vibe

Duncton Mill Fishery is a family run business hosting a limited number of weddings beside their lakes each year.

They can therefore go that extra mile to ensure that your wedding runs smoothly, are able to offer you a personal service and are on hand to support you in the months leading up to your wedding and most importantly on your special day itself.

They are primarily a marquee reception site and their beautiful venue gives you the scope to create an original wedding that you and your guests won’t forget, you can be as hands off or on as you like – they want to give you the flexibility to put as much of ‘you’ into your special day as you want – no pre packaged weddings here!

They don’t have set caterers or marquee companies and they don’t charge corkage.

Their little rowing boat Rosie can be moored off the jetty in front of the marquee, the owner dons his dinner jacket, bow-tie and converse trainers and will row you and your guests around the lakes throughout the afternoon until dusk!

Your evening can finish with fireworks across the lake – a wonderful sight watching the reflections of the fireworks in the water.

The facilities are of the highest standard with all the modern conveniences, yet preserving the rustic charm of the site.
