Buck Hall with its vaulted ceiling, arched minstrels gallery and splendid fireplace takes centre stage at the heart of the house, and is ideally suited for the wedding breakfast. Drinks receptions can be held on the manicured croquet lawn with far reaching views of the South Downs or in two elegant reception rooms – the Library and Drawing Room – which open onto the front terrace.

Standout Venue Features:
From your approach across parkland, landscaped by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown in the eighteenth century, to the sumptuous but intimate interiors that greet you, this former hunting lodge is your home from home where the warmest welcome awaits. Why not take a dip in either the indoor or outdoor swimming pools, play a game of pool or partake in some late night bowling? For the duration of your stay, spend your time at Cowdray House how you wish. A game of snooker? A shooting party? Fly fishing for trout on the Rother? A sporting estate and the home of the British Polo. Polish up your skills on a polo pony with our instructors, spend an afternoon with a golf pro on our 18-hole championship course or just relax with some laps in one of the pools.

Delicious food is central to stays at Cowdray, whether it’s an indulgent afternoon tea with freshly baked scones and cakes or an extravagant dinner for your guests. Lamb, beef and game reared on Cowdray land and Estate stalked venison as well as honey from hives on the Estate, produced by bees who forage on local pollen and Cowdray eggs.
