The perfect wedding and events venue, full of history and character


The Sussex Barn is a small wedding venue in Sussex and has been in the Gribble family for many years and prior to that was part of the Hellingly Hospital farm. The barn would have originally stored hay and straw for the farm animals and more recently it housed farm machinery but a wedding proposal in the summer of 2008 saw the barn eventually cleared to make way for a family wedding reception.

Mark and Lucy celebrated their wedding in the barn in the summer of 2009 and from then it has been used for wedding receptions, anniversaries, christenings, meetings, coffee mornings and birthday parties for the family but it is now available for hire to all. The Sussex Barn is an ideal small wedding venue in Sussex offering an intimate setting for your big day.
