The Maple Manor: Exclusive-Use Wedding Venue near Gatwick

Welcome to The Maple Manor, an exclusive-use wedding venue near Gatwick, Crawley. We’re happily sandwiched between West Sussex’s South Downs National Park and the Surrey Hills AONB – there aren’t many places in the UK where you can be surrounded by nature and still so well-connected to the rest of the world!

Our exclusive-use venue is a relaxed home-from-home. Classic and cosy with original wooden beams, feature fireplaces and hardwood floors running throughout, our Gatwick wedding venue offers a comfortable, private backdrop against which you can put your own stamp on one of the most important days of your life.


Convenient Wedding Venue near Gatwick with Airport Parking

Gatwick Wedding Venue

There are 195 airports across 61 countries around the world that fly directly to Gatwick Airport. So if you have family or friends living abroad, chances are they’d be able to fly non-stop to Gatwick for your wedding. And instead of them landing and then needing a train, a bus, a taxi and a 10 minute walk to get to your venue, The Maple Manor is located in a convenient location just a few minutes’ drive from Gatwick’s terminals.

This close proximity to the airport also means we are minutes away from the main Gatwick train station, where you can hop on the Gatwick Express to arrive in Central London in just 17 minutes. This means our location is also convenient for guests travelling from across the UK by train; and our proximity to the M23 linking to the M25 means those driving can get here just as easily too. We have safe, secure parking facilities onsite which you and your guests can make use of.
