About Crockstead Farm Hotel


The courtyard area at Crockstead Farm Hotel which has been transformed into a fairground and a village fete scene for parties held at the venue.

Crockstead Farm Hotel is well known as a wedding and party venue but a warm welcome is also offered to visitors dropping in for lunch or an evening meal on the spur of the moment.

Food is locally sourced – some from its own farm – and there will be a meal available to suit your appetite whether that’s a bar snack or full three-course meal.

There’s a choice of surroundings to eat in too, the bar, out on a balcony or in the restaurant.

It is worth remembering that there is a carvery on Sundays with roasts, and all the trimmings, served between noon and 4pm for £8.95. Booking is advisable.


The restaurant at Crockstead Farm Hotel.

Ross Page, from the hotel, said people were welcome to call in for a drink, a meal or simply to look around at any time.

Ross added: “There’s a long drive down to the hotel and so it can’t easily be seen from the road but we are happy for people to come into our car park, have a look around, stay for a while or simply head back out on to the road.”

Hotel accommodation at Crockstead is flexible and ideal for family get-togethers. There are en suite rooms and also a suite with six bedrooms and another with three bedrooms so your gathering can be completely self-contained.

The venue has function rooms for every occasion whether that is a celebration in an indoor heated marquee for 400 to 500 people; a wedding in a wrought iron gazebo in the grounds and space for 150 guests or seating for up to 100 guests in The Mill Room.


All ready for an outdoor wedding ceremony at Crockstead Farm Hotel.

Your imagination can soar when it comes to entertainment and there have been spectacular parties at Crockstead including one with a fairground theme which included a full set of dodgems in the courtyard and another with a village fete theme with bouncy castles, coconut shy and splat the rat game.

Ross said: “We want people to be able to organise whatever they choose to make their special day perfect.”

Rooms can be hired by the hour and this attracts a variety of activities with bookings including sessions for pilates and for a bridge club. There are archery classes and Uckfield Rugby Club uses an indoor multi-functional space for winter training sessions.

Woodland Adventures military themed parties and activities are also run on land owned by Crockstead Farm Hotel.

The centre offers full, part and assisted livery at competitive prices with packages to suit individual needs.
