stanmer house Visual Air


Steeped in history, our stunningly restored Grade 1 country house is nestled in unspoilt Grade 2 listed parkland and acres of peaceful, open-access Sussex woodland and countryside. Just a stone’s throw from the hustle and bustle of the City of Brighton and Hove.

Built in 1722  for the Pelham Family, now a “Proud Country House”, Stanmer House has been restored and sensitively modernised, with a large private garden and marquee.

The gateway to the South Downs National Park and the heart of the Living Coast UNESCO World Biosphere Region, connecting people with nature.

Come by Bus: The House and Parkland are well served by bus (route 78) and train (Falmer Station), with ample customer parking on site.

We are sometimes closed to the general public on Monday and Tuesday; please call to check 01273 680400.


Proud Country House can be hired for corporate events, private celebrations and promoter events and festivals.

Our versatile house, gardens and marquee can be hired separately or as a whole.

We can accommodate private parties for as few as 10 guests, right through to activities involving up to 800 people.


From your very first viewing through to your special day, we take care to make your wedding absolutely perfect.  With our strong emphasis on food, you can expect exceptional hospitality during your time with us. A venue for all styles, sizes and seasons; say “I do” at Stanmer.
