Deans Place Hotel is a 4-star country house hotel surrounded by four acres of beautiful gardens. Nestled on the banks of the River Cuckmere in the South Downs National Park, our idyllic location offers the most picturesque backdrop for your wedding.

Sitting on the edge of Alfriston, one of England’s prettiest villages, Deans Place was established over 100 years ago. Originally a vast farming estate dating back to the 14th Century, Deans Place became a privately owned hotel at the beginning of the 20th Century.

Deans Place Hotel’s romantic setting, fantastic facilities, and dedicated staff will help to create the most wonderful and memorable day for your wedding, exclusively yours for the day.



Deans Place is set in four acres of beautiful gardens, with glorious views of the South Downs, backing onto the River Cuckmere. Our exclusive packages give you and your guests the whole hotel, grounds and all 32 bedrooms for your wedding day and includes a professional toastmaster.

Licensed for ceremonies both indoors and outdoors you can exchange your vows in the Wedding Garden under the gazebo, or in one of our two beautiful function suites that enjoy views of the surrounding landscape.

Whilst guests enjoy drinks on the lawn in the summer or by the roaring fireplaces in the winter, there are endless photo opportunities within our grounds and nearby, including striking cliffs, picturesque Alfriston Village, along the River Cuckmere or on the rolling South Downs.

From a traditional wedding breakfast to a bespoke theme, we can bring your dream to life!

Our largest room, The Alfriston Suite offers magnificent views of the South Downs and surrounding landscape and can accommodate up to 110 guests for your wedding breakfast and up to 200 guests for your evening reception.

Please contact us today for more information or to book a viewing of the hotel on 01323 870248 option 2 or email us at events@deansplace.co.uk


We look forward to welcoming you to the hotel.

It is difficult to find the words to express the depth of gratitude that we feel for the staff at Deans Place. To be married in such beautiful surroundings was heaven but to also have efficient, professional, helpful and friendly staff meant that we could relax and enjoy our day. We cannot thank you all enough for creating such a perfect memory for us. Deans Place will always have a special place in our hearts and we will visit you often, much love and best wishes, Mr & Mrs Blain
