This week, the Best of Crawley is thrilled to welcome its newest member, Highley Manor. This stunning 19th century manor house is set in seven acres of countryside. It caters for parties, conferences and, above all, weddings.
The manor house is a beautiful setting for your special day. The Victorian interior has been brought up to date while still retaining many of the original features such as chandeliers, fireplaces and French windows. There are lovely views of the West Sussex countryside – go out into them and you’ve got the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos.
Highley Manor prides itself on being able to offer parties exclusive use of the house during events – the only people there will be you and your party (and the staff, of course!). Exclusive use extends to the overnight accommodation: there are nineteen bedrooms for the use of the bride and groom and their guests. If you’d like your ceremony there too – and I think I would! - you can plight your troth in the wood-panelled Baronial Hall which, as part of the original 17th century manor, is the ideal setting for your vows. It is also the former chapel of the poet Shelley and his family. The Highley Manor wedding planners are ready and waiting to ensure your special day runs smoothly and everything is perfect.
If this sounds like just the place for your wedding, you’ll be pleased to hear that the Best of Crawley and Highley Manor have teamed up to bring you a great value special offer. For just £5553, you and your beloved will have a day’s exclusive use of the venue for your wedding and reception for sixty day guests and forty more evening guests. Each guest will receive a Pimms on arrival and a glass of Prosecco for the toasts. The price also includes food: a wedding breakfast for the daytime and a finger buffet for the evening reception. The offer is available for weddings held in November 2013 and also in January, February, March and November in 2014.
