Southlands Barn in West Chiltonton is one of my favourite wedding venues in West Sussex for a number of reasons. First and foremost, the barn itself is a beautiful and historic building that has been lovingly restored and preserved. It has a charming rustic feel that immediately sets the tone for a romantic and intimate wedding.

One of the things that sets Southlands Barn apart from other wedding venues in the area is its stunning location. Situated on a working farm in the heart of the Sussex countryside, the barn is surrounded by rolling hills, fields of wheat and barley, and picturesque woodland. This idyllic setting provides the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos and ensures that your special day will be truly unforgettable.

Another reason why I love Southlands Barn is the level of service and attention to detail provided by the venue's team of dedicated staff. From the moment you first visit the barn to discuss your plans, they are on hand to help you with every aspect of your wedding, from choosing the perfect menu to arranging the seating plan. On the day of your wedding, they will be there to ensure that everything runs smoothly and that you and your guests have a wonderful time.

In terms of facilities, Southlands Barn offers everything you could need for your special day. The barn itself can accommodate up to 150 guests for a seated reception, and there is a large outdoor area for your drinks reception and evening entertainment. The venue also has a fully-equipped catering kitchen, a bar, and plenty of parking for your guests.

Overall, I would highly recommend Southlands Barn as a wedding venue. Its beautiful location, charming rustic atmosphere, and excellent facilities make it the perfect choice for a truly special and memorable day.
