The Barn & Stable

The Old Barn

Pangdean Old BarnBuilt in 1720, Pangdean Old Barn is an outstanding example of an oak framed Sussex barn that is inviting and full of character. We love hearing the ‘wows’ when your guests walk through the door.The Old Barn can accommodate 190 people seated, and yet it provides a remarkably intimate venue for upwards of 50 people.  The adjustable lighting adds to the atmosphere, which can beautifully enhanced with candles.  Because the barn is such an interesting structure, it is not necessary to invest heavily in floristry to dress the venue. To help you further, the Old Barn comes with fairy lights, lanterns, candles and tealights at no extra charge.

The bar area is incorporated in the main barn and not in a side room.  Unlike other venues, the party is not broken up into different spaces, meaning it’s easier for you to spend time with your guests and enjoy the celebratory atmosphere.

You are welcome to incorporate a band, disco or other entertainment into your event.  We have our own sound system and microphones which you are welcome to use free of charge.  They are suited to background music and speeches but do not play loud enough for dancing later in the evening.

To see how tables can be laid out to accommodate different numbers of guests, please have a look at our floor plans. We never cram people in and even with a maximum number of seated guests at 196, the room does not feel cramped or uncomfortable.

The Stable

The StableBuilt in 1902, the ‘Stable’ was once was the milking parlour.  It is attached to the Old Barn and provides additional flexible space.

It also incorporates a lovely area for your guests to relax on the sofas provided, where they can take a break from dancing or catch up with friends and family in comfort and yet remain included in your party.

And because we never run more than one event at a time, you never have to worry about other guests straying into your party.  Pangdean is yours for the day and it’s entirely up to you how you would like to use the various spaces.
