Your Very Special Wedding Venue

Your very special wedding venue


tansted House is a very special wedding venue. This beautiful house

in the forest sits at the end of one of the longest beech avenues in the country and enjoys superb views over open countryside in all directions, yet is conveniently situated between Chichester and Portsmouth. Our history began as a hunting lodge in the 11th century. After a disastrous fire, an elegant Edwardian mansion was built on the footprint of the 17th century house, and Stansted Park became the family home of the Earls of Bessborough in 1924. Although the family no longer lives here, the state rooms are furnished as if the Earl was at home, and we love to hear the Bechstein grand piano in the Music Room being played for a wedding. It really brings the house to life.

“Our wedding day was absolutely perfect we couldn’t have asked for a better setting.”

Your Very Special Wedding Venue

Yours for a day


tansted Park can be yours for a day. All our bookings are exclusive and

every wedding is different – we have a beautiful private setting for a ceremony in the Music Room, the option of a blessing in the lovely Chapel, a reception, a wedding breakfast, or a marquee party – any combination that suits the Bride and Groom, their family and from 20 to over 200 guests. The approach to the house is along a private forest drive, where in the course of a year the beech woods change from the vivid greens in spring to beautiful autumn tints. The ancient private chapel stands beside a sunny walled garden. In winter it is surrounded by drifts of snowdrops, and then clouds of daffodils that make a super setting for your photographs. In autumn tiny wild pink cyclamen bloom here.

“You guided us through every moment and it was just perfect.”

Your Very Special Wedding Venue

Exclusive and very private


e are an exclusive and private venue, but very friendly, and on hand

with experienced advice throughout your planning and during the Big Day. We also have contacts with experienced and excellent local suppliers from whom the Bride and Groom can choose any option for a reception or party. Stansted Park is a unique setting, featuring newly refurbished rooms that contain splendid historic collections. We look forward to hearing your ideas, and would love to show you around.

“You were friendly, professional, and inspired confidence.�
