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 Sussex woodland and countryside.

Built in 1722  for the Pelham Family, who owned it until 1947, and set in Stanmer Park – the City’s largest park – it’s the perfect venue for all seasons.

Now part of the Proud Group, Proud Country House has been recently restored and sensitively modernised, with a large private garden and marquee; a unique venue just a stone’s throw from the hustle and bustle of the City of Brighton and Hove.

NOW OPEN – Source at Stanmer, a new classic dining experience using fresh ingredients from within a twenty mile radius.

The House and Parkland are well served by bus (routes 77 and 78) and train (Falmer Station), with ample customer parking on site.


Celebrate in style and comfort with a range of Christmas packages and activities, including Santa Claus, Christmas wreath making and chocolate making workshops

Great for festive parties and perfect for an extra special Christmas Day or Boxing day family celebration.


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.
