Located on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Alfriston, you are far enough removed from the hustle and bustle of the main village that it’s peaceful and tranquil, but close enough to easily access all the amenities Alfriston has to offer. The village itself boasts a plethora of eateries, pubs and shops and is walkable in 15 minutes along the road pathway. The manor house is also very convenient for couples wanting to get married in the historic St Andrew’s Church, the steeple of which you can see from the manor.

When hosting your wedding at Follers Manor, you will enjoy access to the 10 acres of grounds and award-winning gardens as well as a two-night luxurious stay for up to 15 guests.
Open from May to October each year, their wedding paddock can house a marquee for up to 150 guests from their supplier Sail & Peg. These sailcloth marquees perfectly complement the dramatic backdrop of the downs and give couples a blank canvas to let their wedding dreams run wild. Whether your style is elegant-chic or bohemian festival, these marquees can be lavishly decorated to suit all styles and budgets!
Built in the 19th century, the manor house itself has been lovingly restored to its former glory and now provides a colourful, unique and elegant accommodation for couples and their guests. Sleeping 15 people across seven bedrooms, there is plenty of space to host all your nearest and dearest in stylish surroundings ahead of your big day and there’s nothing quite like waking up amidst the Sussex countryside before your nuptials!
With totally unspoiled views across the South Downs, Follers Manor truly is a stunning venue and offers an unforgettable backdrop for the countryside wedding you’ve been dreaming of. As a family run business, weddings at Follers hold a special place in their hearts and they hope that couples and their guests love the venue as much as they do.
Unfortunately not at the moment, however Alfriston village which is a 2-minute drive away has a couple of stunning locations which do.
The venue is located in the middle of the South Downs National Park and as such is a conservation area. With this in mind, we require live music and speakers to be turned off at 11pm, with guests to have left by 11:30pm.
Yes. We are able to accommodate 100 cars in the lower paddock with its own entrance and exit. Don’t worry, it won’t spoil the view!
Sailcloth marquees don’t work as well in muddy conditions so we only take wedding bookings from May to October.
All our couples are unique and therefore so are our prices! Prices vary depending on the month, number of guests and all kinds of requirements so we do bespoke packages for all our weddings.
