The wedding party can stay in Goodnestone Park House, which sleeps up to 24 people in the 12 newly-furnished double bedrooms. Goodnestone Park also has a recently refurbished cottage on the estate, Bonnington Cottage, that four other guests can stay in.

If desired, in-house catering can be arranged for the day after the wedding so that this time with friends and family can be enjoyed in carefree relaxation. From breakfasts and light lunches to relaxed or formal suppers, a wide-range of catering options are available. Goodnestone Park also has its own wine cellar from which guests can choose their desired beverage, with the aid of a tailor-made wine list.


Additional guests can enjoy a glamping experience in the grounds courtesy of Beneath the Canopy, staying in luxury bell tents. Beneath the Canopy are a boho glamping company that specialises in bell tent hire for weddings & events based in East Sussex, working with Goodnestone Park to provide glamping for your wedding guests not staying in the mansion, if desired.
