Private Celebration At The Winery
Overview. Overlooking the Vineyard and the South Downs, the Winery is a stunning venue in the heart of the Vineyard, perfect for exclusive lunches and dinners or for larger groups.
The Tasting Room is private and is always hired on an exclusive use basis. It can accommodate 16-30 people for dining or up to 80 for a standing reception. Next to it, within the Winery itself, we can also cater for an additional 50-140 people.
EXTRAS. We can help with transport and accommodation, sourcing decoration and entertainment for your event.
CATERING. Depending on the size of your group and requirements, you can either work with our in house chef or our preferred outside caterers. All of our meals are prepared and cooked on site, sourcing as many of our ingredients as possible from local suppliers. All of our meat, from prime beef to black pudding, comes from the Downland Butchers in East Dean and Dymock Farm, just over the hill, supplies our vegetables and eggs.
PRICES. On application.

Educational Trip At Rathfinny
OVERVIEW.The Flint Barns at Rathfinny are perfectly suited to host school groups across all age groups. From first time away from home primary children to prefect team building groups.
On site there’s a spacious snug filled with games and activities for children and adults alike, which is adjacent to the beautiful, large dining area. The lounge is cosy for the winter months and the courtyard provides a beautiful place to relax in the summer.
Staying at the Flint Barns will provide the opportunity to study the local area, the Cuckmere Valley, the South Downs, the white cliffs of Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters from a historical, geological, geographical, environmental and vocational perspective. Nearby is Charleston, home of the Bloomsbury Group, who we work very closely with, as well as Eastbourne with its Towner Art Gallery and Lewes, Brighton and Hastings, offering further opportunities.
ACCOMMODATION. Split over three floors, we have 10 en-suite bedrooms, sleeping up to 22 people, which can be segregated into suitable dormitories allowing for a chaperone.
CATERING. All of our meals are prepared and cooked on site and we source as many of our ingredients as possible from local suppliers. All of our meat, from prime beef to black pudding, comes from the Downland Butchers in East Dean and Dymock Farm, just over the hill from the Estate, supplies our vegetables and eggs. Breakfast is served in the large ground floor dining room and our resident chef prepares all evening meals for service around 7.30pm, served in the family style of eating together– "a home away from home". This is a perfect way to discuss what you have done throughout the day.
SAFETY. We have all the necessary checks and procedures in place to ensure the safety and welfare of children and young people whilst staying at the Flint Barns as well as laundry facilities and a drying room for muddy boots.
