Hidden in the heart of the South Downs
The Dining Room
Family matters

The Dining Room is dramatically decorated with historic family portraits, including that of Sir Thomas Wyatt the Younger, who was beheaded on Tower Hill in 1554 for leading a rebellion against Queen Mary, and his grandfather, Sir Henry Wyatt who was a courtier with Henry VII. Above the entrance door is a portrait of Sir George Scovell, Wellington’s code breaker in the Spanish Peninsular war of 1808 to 1814. There are many other portraits including a family group of Hugh and Evelyn Wyatt and their six children, who lived at Cissbury around 1900 when the house was in its heyday.

French windows lead onto the front terrace which offers wonderful views of the park.

This room can hold up to 30 guests seated at one long table or up to 70 at round tables. When arranged for ceremonies there can be up to 70 chairs.
