The Setting

Nestled down a winding, country lane lies The Secret Barn. Surrounded by open farmland with far reaching views of the South Downs, this authentically, rustic hideaway has beams and original flooring and is not a “done up” wedding barn. We love it all the more for it’s cracks and creaks.

The Vibe

If you are looking for a formal wedding-y venue then The Secret Barn is probably not it. If, however, you are looking for something more relaxed and properly rustic, well they have that in spades!

There is an orchard perfect for a ‘Darling Buds Of May’ style ceremony, old beams crying out for fairy lights, floorboards begging to be danced on and blankets strewn over the farmer’s haybales for toasting marshmallows on the fire pit. You get the idea.

Afterwards, you and your happy campers can trip trap over the rickety bridge to your tents in the paddock to sleep under the stars.

The barn has good access and disabled loos are available to hire if necessary. Simply speak with the team about your requirements.
