Exclusive use East Sussex Wedding Venue

We make dreams come true by working with you and your Partner to help design the Celebration of your dreams.

We believe every Celebration deserves a venue who share your excitement instead of offering packages.

What we offer

Saltcote Place is an intimate family home. We are not a commercial venue. We set aside the time needed to understand your preferences so we can help you arrange the perfect small wedding up to 200 guests.

Our approach means that no two weddings here are ever the same.

We prefer not to offer ‘Packages’. Once we understand your plans we then we work with you to develop an entirely bespoke Celebration tailored around you and we never run weddings back to back.

Peace of mind and a relaxed Celebration is assured with exclusive use.

Once within the grounds, Saltcote will be your home for the day or two and your home only for the duration of your perfect Celebration.

As owners we will be here over seeing every detail. We enjoy meeting excited couples and then later delivering the perfect Celebration for our friends.

Unlike other venues there will be no other brides and grooms checking in tomorrow – we promise! Saltcote is all about exclusivity, this is another way a small wedding venue can really make a difference to your celebration.

Children are welcome and your Guests will enjoy themselves. Disabled facilities are in place and all dietary needs can be accommodated.

The Venue for intimate Weddings


East Sussex Wedding Venue Prices tend to have seasonal fluctuations, which is really annoying. At Saltcote Place in Rye we only have a few prices and it depends on the day of the week and if it’s an indoor or an outdoor Celebration.

Accommodation for the Bride and Groom is included

We can sleep 14 guests here which could include one smaller room with a bunk bed arrangement. Indoor or outdoor Celebrations include the cost of two nights stay with Champagne breakfasts.

Outdoor Celebrations at the Weekend

Ideal if you are looking for party space for up to 180 guests with some great accommodation with breakfasts for 14 close family. We include the use of the grounds for your choice of Marquee and free parking.

We anticipate arrival on the Friday, meet and greet and then prepare for the Saturday Celebration with departure planned for around mid day on the Sunday. Add in your choice of food and drink and the cost of the marquee.

From Monday to Thursday subject to availability we may be able to offer a saving for not having the accommodation of up to £2,500

Indoor Celebrations at the weekend

Ideal for our mature Celebrations where it’s more of a meal with special friends, we can offer accommodation locally for around 80 guests at preferential rates including breakfasts.

We include use of the formal and larger gardens and have plenty of parking.

We anticipate most couples will arrive on the Friday, meet and greet and then prepare for the Saturday Celebration with departure planned for around mid day on the Sunday. From Monday to Thursday subject to availability we may be able to offer a saving for not having the accommodation of up to £1,500.

There are two dining facilities in the house, one can seat up to 40 whilst the second is more intimate at 14 Guests around the large oval dining room table, the smaller function would not include young children.

The extensive lawns and formal gardens offer intimate space for your wedding pictures.

Additional Function times

Evening the day before or you want something on the Sunday ? We can adapt the offering to match your preferences.

We are a very short walk into town, ideal for the Town hall perhaps.

For your additional Guests we are happy to provide a list of local accommodation providers who will look after them. We suggest you contact Rye Community Transport to ensure your guests all get “home” in the evening without needing to drive.


Our Catering team will provide the food of your choice presented to the highest standards. They will provide all staff, and everything you could possibly need for the meal. They will also provide the Marquee if needed and everything is at fair and reasonable rates.

Please arrange a time to come and see us by calling 01797 222220.

Your Guests

12 to 14 of your Guests can stay at Saltcote. Within a few minutes walk, we have enough accommodation for another 100. With midweek Celebrations there is no requirement to use our lovely accommodation.

The Rye Bay area is always a popular place to stay, at the weekend’s good accommodation can be at a premium. We strongly suggest you make your plans well in advance to allow your guests adequate time to make their arrangements. We will be pleased to help where needed.

Often a midweek Wedding will reduce your costs and make it easier for guests to find suitable accommodation. If you are having pre-wedding meals the local restaurants will be more able to offer you exclusive use.

We can help you arrange transport to return your guests to their respective accommodation as the Celebration winds down. Vehicles can be left here overnight if needed.

The day after your Celebration it may be an idea not to rush off but to have a BBQ or tea party in your Marquee? It’s a magical way to share memories in a relaxed way before heading off on your new life together.

Wedding Packages – really?

Packages belong in supermarkets not Weddings.

We prefer the joy of you developing your dreams, with your DJ, Hair, Makup, etc. We will provide support where needed and ideas if you want them.

At Saltcote you are not restricted to “packages”.

We have the best catering and events team in place who work within your budget to develop the bespoke celebration you dream of.

With prices starting from only £57 per person which includes unlimited evening drinks from the bar. Remember it’s your day and your idea’s that count.

We would love to show you around our home. Please get in touch to arrange a viewing, we are unable to see anyone without an appointment.

Come and see us

Let us know about your plans and aspirations. Tell us why you are excited and when you would like to hold your Celebration. The number of Guests will influence the location of the Celebration as could the time of year.

Please phone to arrange a time as we cannot see people who arrive without an appointment.

Once we know about your preferences we can arrange a time for us to show you around this top rated East Sussex Wedding Venue
