Bailiffscourt is a gorgeous luxury hotel set on the Sussex coast, encompassing some lovely function spaces, and accommodation, making it a great option for hosting unforgettable events. This West Sussex gem has been around since the 1930’s, and continues to play host to numerous high-society functions. The manor house was designed in a medieval style by the Guinness family and is well-situated in the heart of Sussex, with great transport links to London.
It was bought by Historic Sussex Hotels and restored to its original glory, with beautiful features such as the fireplaces and window settings. The stunning venue is surrounded by 30 acres of privately owned parkland and has been modernised within, while still retaining its historic charm. The hotel is also located within close proximity to Climping Beach, perfect for some down time between events for guests to enjoy the stunning sea views.
There are several event spaces to choose from, each one with distinct features and uses. Many of the rooms, such as the Music Room, West Hall, and East Hall can be arranged in a variety of styles to suit formal boardroom meetings or dining occasions. The Lord Moyne Suite and Syndicate is great for hosting meetings with a breakout space, while the restaurant is a lovely option for intimate gatherings. The courtyard can be used for larger events, seating 90 guests for dinner or 100 for a drinks and canape standing reception. The 15th century chapel is another great venue space for hosting meetings, receptions, and more.
There are 39 bedrooms throughout the parkland, set within houses and cottages; each uniquely dressed in contemporary or medieval décor. Plus there are swimming and spa facilities available on site for guests to truly unwind and relax at this beautiful countryside manor. The manor house can be exclusively hired too, for your guests to roam around the beautiful grounds, and for you to get creative with the event spaces.
