Luxury Weddings in the beautiful South Downs

Hollybank is a lovely Georgian Country house on the outskirts of Emsworth and is a unique, romantic and friendly venue for a wedding reception.

The extensive lawn with distant views to Chichester Harbour offers the perfect marquee site to create your own very special occasion, using marquee firms, caterers, florists and other suppliers of your choice. We are happy to recommend excellent suppliers if you would like us to do so.

Packages & Pricing

Weddings at Hollybank are all different and we pride ourselves on starting each one as a blank canvas and working with the couple and not forcing certain suppliers, processes or restrictions onto them, this is after all YOUR day. So we don’t have ‘standard’ packages but are happy to create a bespoke one for you.

As a guide, the price to hire the house and grounds for a wedding starts from £1,000 depending on the day / date.

Please get in touch with some details and we will happily work through the options with you.

A Wedding at Hollybank

Guests arrive through the house and enjoy the main reception rooms before moving onto the south facing terraces and lawn for drinks. The main reception rooms of the house are suitable for a small wedding reception, up to 30 formally seated in the Dining Room, or up to 80 for a champagne and canapes/buffet wedding reception.

Most weddings at Hollybank use the outside space and the main lawn for a marquee (or other shelters). Often guests are observed playing croquet whist sipping champagne or strolling round the grounds. There is plenty of space for other entertainment as well.

Food and drink for any tastes can be catered for, whether it be an informal hog roast or a sit down candle lit banquet. We work with some excellent local suppliers but are always happy if you have someone specific in mind for your day.

The house is floodlit and has ample parking, cars may be left overnight. Our Bed and Breakfast facilities are also available for you or your guests.

The real deal, my wife and myself stayed for three nights in the pink room and it was great, the beds were very comfortable and the breakfast was a treat, this was home from home. We both fell in love with the house the moment we saw it on the web and when we arrived it was even better. To share this beautiful home with Viv and Anna was a pleasure, if you want modern plastic and chrome this is not for you, but to have a taste of the past with luxury thrown in this is it. We are going back again in May for a few days and i am sure it will not be the last.

Trip Advisor

One of the best bed and breakfast accommodation we have stayed in. Great hosts. Breakfast very good. After our daily trips we would come back and make tea and take it and sit in the wonderful grounds, seeing foxes and even deer. We shall definitely be returning.

Trip Advisor

Beautiful and architecturally interesting house in very large grounds. Our bedroom was very spacious and the whole setting was incredibly quiet and peaceful. Super comfortable beds and nice extras in the room - tea and coffee facilities but also a tin of biscuits and some bottled water. Delicious breakfast, freshly cooked to order. Friendly and informative hosts.
