A fine country house wedding venue with a long, rich history and set in 20 acres of ancient woodland nestled between the beautiful Surrey and Sussex Hills.

A Brief History of Lythe Hill Hotel

The distinctive Tudor House with its dark exposed beams is a listed building and dates back to 1475 when it was the center of a large estate.

The estate was owned and managed by the Quennell family for a considerable number of years until  it passed from them in 1677 to various other owners until in 1935 the 2000 acre estate was sold and broken up into a number of separate units.

In the early 1960's when it was being run as a restaurant with 6 bedrooms it was sold again and with subsequent purchases it began to be converted into a modern hotel, one that ended up with 28 rooms.

Today the hotel has 44 bedrooms, most of which have been converted from old farm buildings including barns, milk parlous and cattle sheds.

All the bedrooms are named, the first floor names deriving from local places, the second floor after famous people and the outside rooms after famous poets and writers.

The Tudor House now is the hotel restaurant and it also has five bedroom suites named after Henry Vlll and four of his wives and it is said that a ghost haunts both the Katharine of Aragon and the Anne of Cleeves bedrooms...there are many tales of mysterious voices, faces and the sounds of rattling keys. In addition an Agnes Quennell has also been known to make her presence known.

Lythe Hill Hotel Surrey wedding photography opportunities

There are three licensed areas for wedding ceremonies at Lythe Hill:

First, and the most popular is the Garden Room - located in the main hotel, just past the reception and via a comfortable lounge bar area, it is a long and rectangular room with a capacity of up to 128 guests. Its glass conservatory style roof helps provide plenty of natural light, perfect for capturing the wedding ceremony. Later it is turned around for both the wedding breakfast and then for the night time celebrations and the lounge area is a nice area for capturing guests enjoying a chat and relaxing over a glass of champagne.

A second option is The Quennell Room which is perfect for small wedding ceremonies of up to 35 seated guests and this is situated in the historic Tudor House.

Thirdly, there is the option for a beautiful, tranquil and green outdoor wedding, the ceremony being performed in a picturesque Gazebo which looks out onto a lake and trees as do the guest bench seating on the lawn. This option offers the wedding photographer plenty of freedom of space and lots of opportunities for covering of the service and proceedings from many different angles.

The lawn and lake area offer the perfect backdrop for the group wedding photos and is also an ideal area for taking the newlyweds off for some more personal and romantic wedding pictures away from the celebrations.

Also just off the lawn nearest to the car park is the Tennyson Room, a suite that is popular with Brides as they get ready for their marriage ceremony and thus is often the starting point for the wedding photographer.

Like all good Surrey wedding venues, the staff manage the day smoothly and efficiently without fuss and it's a relaxed and enjoyable venue to work at.
