Duncton Mill – Under New Management

Duncton Mill near Petworth in West Sussex is a fishery and beautiful lakeside marquee venue. Caroline and Martin have been running the venue for years but as they’re due to retire, Carole from The Naked Food Company is taking over… and she’s got BIG plans.

Carole’s catering business has been based on the estate at Duncton Mill for years. The award-winning company creates bespoke menus to suit a variety of tastes, styles and budgets.

Choose The Naked Food Company to cater for your lakeside wedding (think grazing tables under the trees and desserts on the jetty) or bring in a caterer of your choice. The beauty of the venue is you’re not tied to any suppliers, you have complete freedom and Carole and her team are on hand for advice and contacts. (Pssst – you can even bring your own booze!)

Whether you have a traditional pole marquee or a tipi, you’ll enjoy stunning wildlife and beautiful sunsets. The traditional rowing boat on the tranquil lake makes for picture perfect photos.

New for 2020 – Barlavington Barn

The 150-year-old onsite barn is being lovingly restored in time for the summer season. As the barn is listed, all the original materials have been removed, strengthened, treated and put back. Once complete, the eco barn will store heat in summer to use in winter. It will be licenced for ceremonies and will also be home to Carole’s cookery school and pop-up foodie events.


(Please note Carole had plans for wedding fairs in May and August. I assume they’re up in the air while we await further instructions from the government. She is however baking up a storm and offering local delivery. Check out her Facebook page for mouthwatering pictures of baked goods, and contact details)
