Information For Selden Barns

Nestled in the South Downs National Park, an area of outstanding beauty. Family owned and run, we create a friendly, warm and exclusive atmosphere.

Selden Barns, at Old Selden Farm, is set within over 50 acres of the South Downs National Park; the idyllic rural retreat for your wedding day.

This family-run venue is exclusively yours to enjoy, and features beautiful, characterful barns, with Old Selden Farmhouse at the venues heart, and beautifully kept lawns and terrace overlooking open farmland and forests.

Selden Barns also benefits from nine guest bedrooms, accommodating up to 22 of your wedding guests, including the ‘The Gatehouse’ Newlywed Suite. Breakfast is cooked to order and served in the Farmhouse kitchen.

Wedding ceremonies are licensed for up to 100 guests in our stunning ceremony space; a converted barn adjoining the Farmhouse with original oak beams, fireplace and exposed brickwork. To add a little extra sparkle, fairy lights entwine the beams overhead whilst you make your wedding vows.

After your ceremony, enjoy pre-reception drinks and canapes on one of our lawns within the walled gardens, or terraces adjoining the Grand Barn; the location for your wedding breakfast and evening reception.

With capacity to seat up to 230 guests for your wedding breakfast and up to 250 for your evening reception, this versatile, flexible wedding space is second to none. With beautiful ivory pleated drapes, swags and tails, vintage chandeliers and a fairy light canopy, you and your guests will enjoy grandeur during your wedding day.

For your evening wedding reception, party the night away on our raised, chequered dancefloor with provision for a DJ or band and the bar located just a ‘boogie’ away! And for those warm, summer nights, step off the dancefloor and through the doors on to the splendid terrace and lawns to enjoy your favourite drink and look up at the stars.

Your venue hire package includes tables, chairs, fully stocked bar and staff, wedding décor items such as table centre pieces, gift and cake tables, post box for cards, easel for your table plan, as well as ample parking.

Top Wedding Tips

Always keep the budget in mind, don't just think about the venue cost, keep in mind the catering, photographer, decorations, and entertainment.

When looking for a venue keep space in mind, a venue that is too spread out will segregate guests. Having the bar, dance floor, and food tables in the same area will keep everyone together.

Who are your guests? Children and adults alike will need entertainment throughout the day, its good to plan out the day to keep your guests happy. (Happy kids means happy parents)

Beautiful venue with amazing suppliers
What can we say we got married last weekend and had an amazing time, our guests loved it and the day ran without a hitch thanks to Elaine and Rachel our assigned wedding coordinators. They catered to our every need and went above and beyond. The planning in the lead up was informative, helpful and we felt reassured at all times. Would highly recommend to anyone seeking a beautiful venue with amazing suppliers and staff. Would love to do it all again. Thank you guys you made it so special xxxxx

Selden Barns was simply the most perfect venue for our Wedding in Oct 2018. An absolutely stunning location with fantastic accommodation. Rachel is one amazing lady, nothing was too much. Our day really ran like a dream all because of Rachel and the team. We reminisce daily about the utter perfection of everything. Wouldn’t change a thing about the venue or our special day.
