Set in rural East Sussex, just outside Tunbridge Wells and close to the fields, woods and hills of the Ashdown Forest nestles the small friendly village of High Hurstwood. The village hall and green provide the perfect atmosphere for a wedding venue with a difference.

High Hurstwood village hall barn is the ideal all weather venue

So you think that you might like a rural, country wedding? It is your special day and you want it just right but you want to keep it within budget. There is nowhere more tranquil to host you and your guests on your unforgettable day.

Holy Trinity Church, in High Hurstwood is the perfect quintessential, rural, English village church, with its sandstone walls, bell tower, arched gothic entrances and stained glass windows. Canon Revd Rob Dillingham would be happy to discuss a wedding if you meet the qualifying criteria for a Church of England wedding, or give a Church blessing to those recently legally married.

Choose the village hall barn and extensive green to erect your own marquee or gazebos to style the wedding the way you want it.

Host your canapés and drinks reception outside on the village green where your guests can mingle and enjoy the sunny fresh air and open views of country life, including mediaeval buildings, barns and horse riders in the distance.

Offering authentic English village charm with modern facilities, the hall has a capacity for 200 guests standing only, or seating for 100 guests to dine in comfort.

The Venue

The barn is bright and airy with a vaulted ceiling and many exposed oak beams giving the perfect ambiance for your special day. The double aspect windows open out onto a paved terrace and the green allowing you and your guests to take advantage of the great sunny outdoors in spring and summer. Take advantage of the stage for your evening entertainment with its own stage lighting, and the newly installed LED lighting provides a cosy atmosphere as the evening draws in.

There is free parking for up to 30 cars and our wedding package provides time after 8.00 pm Friday night for decorating the hall and up to 11.00 am on Sunday morning to clear up, although a professional clean is also required.

To the side of the hall there is a fully fitted and equipped kitchen with two ovens and a large larder refrigerator able to cope with the requirements of your caterers. The kitchen comes fully stocked with cutlery and some basic crockery. Glassware is not included.

The facility is fully compliant for wheelchair access.

Fully Licenced Wedding Venue

The hall is fully licensed for music until midnight. We also work closely with local hotels and B&B providers for those who wish to stay and enjoy the village.

We can recommend caterers, bar rentals, entertainment and taxis and we have a large village green and a playground for children to keep them entertained.

We highly recommend a visit to fully appreciate the charm and quality that our unique hall offers at a price that offers true value for money
