The Secret Barn is an authentic, rustic barn, nestled at the foot of the South Downs, complete with original beams, cracks & creaks, and set in lots of outdoor space and strewn with fairy lights.


Do we have exclusive use?

Yes! You also have access to the barn for the two days before the wedding and the two days after, so if you choose to do the setting up etc, you have plenty of time, (if you would rather not we do offer set up and pack up service too).

Do you charge corkage?

No - there is no corkage

How many guests does the barn seat?

The barn seats up to 110 guests, the maximum capacity is 150.

What about accommodation?

There are lots of holiday homes, Airbnbs, hotels and B&Bs locally, or you could choose to have bell tents and stay the night in the paddock? Glamping anyone?

Is there an outdoor ceremony space?

Yes, we have an indoor and outdoor ceremony space; backed by a beautiful old wall the orchard is perfect for outdoor ceremonies, or we have the ceremony barn, bedecked with thousands of fairy light and not a straight line in sight!

Is the venue licenced for legal ceremonies?

Yes, we have a licence so you can hold legal ceremonies with us, or we have some lovely celebrant recommendations of people who can come and do a personalised ceremony or blessing for you.


Thank you so much for everything. From start to finish you have been amazing. The beautiful Secret Barn was the perfect setting. We loved our ceremony in the orchard under the gorgeous tree! (Anyone know what type of tree it is!?) :) And the barn looked absolutely stunning. The flowers were drop dead gorgeous, and everyone has said how amazing they were. The bouquets were even more beautiful than I had ever imagined. Thank you for taking my Pinterest and turning it into reality AND MORE! And the food …. was completely delicious. Again, so many people have said how good it was. You are such a fantastic team and have made the whole process such a joy. I want to do the whole thing again, exactly the same. I wouldn’t change a thing. It was just perfect.

We knew when we stumbled across The Secret Barn that we'd found something special. If you are looking for a beautiful, rustic, non-weddingy wedding venue then this is it. No packages, chair sashes or conveyor belt weddings - just the gorgeous barn to make your own. The setting is absolutely stunning and we feel incredibly lucky that we got to celebrate our wedding there. The planning is relaxed and easy. Hannah is super chilled, which instantly put us at ease. Any questions or worries we had we answered and we felt we were in safe hands throughout. The Petal and Feast Team are all bloody lovely, and definitely know there stuff, they were brilliant in the lead up and on the day, which meant zero stress for us. The day itself was a dream. the food was delicious. The flowers were beautiful. The barn was perfect. We wouldn't change a single thing... We had so many compliments, our friends and family still keep talking about it. We honestly can't recommend it enough, if you are getting married, do it here!
