The Ravenswood is outstanding.

What an outstanding place the Ravenswood is…

Cinder Hill, Sharpthorne, East Grinstead RH19 4HY

As you all know, I’m going out of my way and visiting different wedding locations and wedding fayres so that I can give my honest opinion to my future customers. I have customer service certificates, a vast knowledge in IOSH (health & safety) and risk auditing…

I stumbled across a perfect location\hotel and made enquiries to pay a little visit…

I arrived there ( It felt as if I was driving into a forrest, it was lovely) and I was met by one of the new owners Samantha Wordie.

She told me the whole story, it is a 15th century building, the original part of the building was built in 1426 and the gentleman that owned it previously was to retire and was going to sell to developers so they could turn it in to luxury apartments.

This place was too special for that, over the years, royalty had stayed there, the “dreamish” gardens, four lakes and historic ruins that coincidentally make fabulous backdrops  for a dream wedding photograph, all made it into that dream wedding venue that people dream about.

On my first visit, they were restoring a room and a lot of other work was being done to get the venue back to the glorious way it was always known to be.

I returned because a wedding fayre was being held there, it was all decorated as if there was to be a wedding there, the place was extraordinary.


With it’s outstanding 20 acres of gardens with lakes will turn your Romantic occasion or wedding event into an “alice in wonderland dream”, the accommodation for the guests is fabulous “you are sure to have a restful night in luxury” with the friendly and attentive staff there.

I do highly recommend this venue to all people, hoping for that dream wedding or romantic occasion they’ve been dreaming about since childhood.
