Welcome!

If you’re visiting our website it probably means you have a special occasion planned.  Whether it’s a wedding, birthday, anniversary or business event Yew Lodge Country House can provide the perfect setting, excellent catering and attentive service to ensure you all have a wonderful time, with memories to treasure forever!

Warm and welcoming with an air of quiet, rural charm – Yew Lodge Country House is a classic Victorian house with bedroom accommodation, offering a top-class service for weddings, social celebrations and business events.

What makes Yew Lodge Country House unique is that every event has exclusive use of the venue, so you will have the privacy you desire in an extremely attractive setting.

Named after the 800 year old tree in the beautiful 10 acre gardens, the estate is steeped in history, with first references dating back to 959ad. The house as it stands now was built around 1891, with substantial enhancements carried out over the years, including a new facility built in 2010, especially designed for weddings and private events.

Yew Lodge Country House is on the outskirts of East Grinstead, set well back from the road. It is approached by a long, private drive and we have ample, private parking. We describe our location as secluded yet not remote. We are on the borders of West Sussex, Surrey and Kent; 10 minutes by taxi from East Grinstead railway station with direct connections to central London and Thameslink, and 20 minutes from the M25/M23/M26 motorway network and Gatwick Airport.

Plan the wedding of your dreams...

If you imagine your dream wedding taking place in a private country house with only your nearest and dearest present, from the ceremony right through to the intimate breakfast the following morning, then Yew Lodge Country House will be the perfect venue for you.

A charming setting for weddings, accommodating both ceremonies and receptions, with 10 acres of lovely gardens encompassing the essence of the Sussex Countryside. A romantic setting with many beautiful photo opportunities, helping you to create memories to treasure forever.

The venue is licensed for civil ceremonies and partnerships and can host smaller weddings up to 50 in the Oak Suite with many period and Art Deco features, and larger weddings in our contemporary Sycamore Suite with air conditioning, high ceilings and sparkly floor. The capacity for a seated Wedding Breakfast is 130, increasing to a total of 140 guests for the evening celebration.

Social Occasions...

Private family celebrations including christenings, birthday parties and anniversaries are at the heart of what we offer at Yew Lodge Country House. For larger parties of up to 140 people, the contemporary Sycamore Suite is a perfect setting with space for a band/disco and dance floor, and we can tailor the function to suit you and your entertainment needs.

If you have in mind something smaller and more intimate for 20-50 people then our Oak Suite offers a collection of rooms including a reception room, dining room and conservatory opening out onto the garden. The style of the Oak Suite is in-keeping with the attractive period features of the house.
