At Owlpen we understand that it is sometimes easier to see just one quote, instead of having to work out lots of different costs per head. In recognition of this, we offer a midweek wedding package, which keeps things simple.

Owlpen Manor Cotswold weddings

Our midweek wedding package includes the following benefits:

  • Use of the estate for two nights, where required.  We invite you to arrive the day before your wedding, to give you an opportunity to decorate and get ready for the big day.  We can also host a dinner or informal get-together the night before, in the Cyder Barn, if required.

  • Use of the Owlpen Manor Estate including the gardens and grounds.

  • Exclusive use of the brand new pole barn, and medieval Cyder Barn, for dining and dancing.

  • Access to the Manor House itself for ceremonies for up to 50 people.

  • Wine for 40 people: our package includes a bottle of wine per head (sparkling, red and white), spread out over the reception, wedding breakfast, and speeches. We also offer ‘beer buckets’ at a discounted price if you would like more variety during the reception, and our fully stocked bar will be open for evening drinks.

  • Food for 40 people: the cost includes a three-course meal.  Choose one dish from a range of options outlined below.

  • All cutlery, crockery and glassware is included in the fee.  Seating is on long trestle tables which don’t need table linen.  If you would like linen, or prefer round tables, there is an additional fee.

NB We usually host our midweek weddings on a Wednesday.  This allow you to arrive the day before with no one else there except from you.  In the same way, on the Thursday you need not be in any hurry to leave.  If you would prefer a Thursday wedding, we can arrange this for you.  The only difference is that there is a tighter deadline for checking out of the accommodation in the morning.  It is up to you! 


The price for our midweek wedding package is £4950, October to end of April. This price includes alcohol and food for up to 40 people.

The price for May and September is £5950.

June, July and August is £6950.

For additional guests, the fee is £64.50 per head, £37.50 for children, and £24.50 for kids under ten years old.  They can enjoy bottomless soft drinks all day (elderflower, orange juice, apple juice), all included.

 The fee for wedding suppliers, such as photographers and band members – is £27.50.

If you would prefer to opt for a dry hire option – without food or drinks – the fee is £5250 For May-September, and £3750 for the rest of the year.

The holiday cottages are charged out separately.  Our nine boutique holiday cottages can sleep 40 people in total, and cost around £50-£65 per person per night, based on a two-night stay (the night before, and the night of the celebrations).

NB these published prices are valid for 2025 and 2026 weddings.  Prices for 2027 may vary.
