Southdowns Manor is a delightful and exclusive wedding venue in Trotton, Hampshire. With its impressive décor and charming function rooms, and a splendid landscaped terrace spilling out onto the South Downs National Park, this late Victorian country house wedding venue exudes elegance, seclusion and charm.

Both intimate gatherings and much larger celebrations can be accommodated at Southdowns Manor. With a variety of rooms licensed for civil ceremonies and able to host reception parties, the house is exclusively yours, for you to use as you wish. One of the wedding-licensed areas is the delightful outdoor gazebo, perfect for a romantic al fresco ceremony in warmer weather.

History

Southdowns Manor is an unspoiled historic house, constructed near the end of the 19th century by Hon John Hervis Carnegie, who was the High Sheriff of Sussex in 1862 and the third son of the 7th Earl of Northesk. His initials can still be seen today on a stone boundary post, left of the Southdowns Manor entrance.

Southdowns Manor was then sold around 1895, which saw the construction of the top floor and the water tower, and was for a while the home of Rudolf Blind, a German artist. It was then run as an independent school, and during the war it was a billet for The Royal Canadian Air Force. It was purchased by the Tabor Group in 2013, and has since been a luxurious wedding venue.
