Here at The Party Field, we pride ourselves on being highly selective with the fields we choose to work with, in order to ensure the most stunning back drop for your country wedding or party. Our flagship field in Lewes offers amazing views of the rolling South Downs hills and has hosted some truly magical events. We also have a second Sussex field, in the pretty village of Pulborough, as well as the field it offers both woodland areas, and an amazing lake. Alternatively, we have the most beautiful Exmoor field which is set in the picturesque village of Huntsham and with panoramic views of the stunning Devon countryside. We are passionate about upholding this high standard to ensure we only represent the highest quality fields.
