Great Betley is a gorgeous 16th Century farmhouse nestled in 200 acres of beautiful countryside and the farmland of West Sussex. Around five acres of this could be exclusively yours for your wedding. Great Betley’s Kim Stewart has worked hard to create a stunning, rustic and laid-back wedding and events venue, providing the perfect backdrop for you to create your day, your way!
With sweeping views towards the South Downs and the Iron Age hill fort of Chanctonbury Ring, Great Betley offers a unique venue like no other in the area. The village of Henfield is conveniently situated between Horsham and Brighton, with good access from major routes like the A23, A24 and A27.
Laid back, rustic simplicity – a blank canvas for you to have your choice of marquee or tipi and create your unique wedding party. If you choose Great Betley for your celebrations, you will have sole use of the venue for two days, allowing for decoration of the marquee or tipi, and for your suppliers to set up ready for the big day, as well as the take-down afterwards.
In the house itself you will find a beautiful en-suite master bedroom/honeymoon suite and three other recently renovated double bedrooms for your use for the duration of the event. The infamous Betley breakfast will be served! There is plenty of space for your guests to glamp or camp in the surrounding fields and meadows, extending the celebrations and making your wedding or event even more memorable.
Whilst the venue doesn’t yet have a marriage license, they do encourage blessings or humanist ceremonies. Having a celebrant ensures a very personal ceremony.
Only silent/quiet fireworks are permitted and absolutely no Chinese Lanterns.
From 12 noon the day before the wedding until 12 noon the day after the wedding.
A Temporary Event Notice is obtainable from the local council. Whoever is supplying the alcohol for the event should include for entertainment on the TEN.
The rooms are available for your use the night before and the night of your event on a B&B basis. Additional nights may be booked subject to availability.
There are 3 fire bowls here which you can use, alternatively you may hire in fire bowls.
