WINNERS!

Owlpen Manor, 2022 Hitched Wedding Awards winner

Owlpen Manor in its hidden private valley is “a paradise incomparable on earth”, wrote the great poet Algernon Charles Swinburne. Choose this Cotswold paradise as your exclusive wedding venue, and find true romance and spoiling intimacy for a never-to-be-forgotten day!

We offer three-day exclusive weddings, with wedding days on a Wednesday or a Saturday.  If you would prefer a Thursday wedding midweek, that is no problem.  You have totally exclusive access to the estate while you are here, so you can call the place your own for three whole days.

The Owlpen team will work with you to create your own personalised wedding experience: we are licensed for civil ceremonies both in the Tudor Manor House itself, in the ancient Cyder Barn nearby, for up to 100 people.  Dating to 1446, it is the oldest licensed wedding barn in Gloucestershire.  We can also host official and unofficial outdoor ceremonies. 

If you would prefer a church service, the beautiful Owlpen Parish Church is just a stone’s throw from the manor house itself, so you can have a church wedding without having to leave the valley.

At Owlpen Manor you can enjoy your private wedding reception in the peace and tranquillity of a secluded Cotswold valley, surrounded by family and friends, while our wedding coordinators make sure everything is professionally organised down to the last detail, from managing parking to the wedding cake itself.

Cotswold wedding venue Owlpen Manor is an exclusive and adaptable setting for any special occasion. Everywhere you look there are scenic photo opportunities against the spectacular Cotswold backdrop. Offering a number of magical locations for your civil ceremony, wedding reception, dancing and dining, the estate is exclusively yours for an entire weekend, or during the week, depending on your preference. Receptions can be held for just 20 and up to 150. The site is licensed and we offer a superb range of selected wines. We can also run a fully stocked bar when requested.

Built in 1446, the Cyder Barn is the perfect barn wedding venue.  Its gigantic oak cruck trusses tower over the room itself, and the majestic cider press adds character and history to this already stunning building.  Directly next door is the pole barn, our contemporary events space with dining capacity for up to 120 guests.  This new structure is made from larch trees from the Owlpen valley to make it as sustainable as possible: the barn comes complete with underfloor heating, powered by our eco-friendly Air-Source Heat Pump, for cosy winter evenings.  We also have a huge wood-burning stove if you like a roaring fire, and fire pits outside the venue for relaxing in the evenings.  For smaller weddings, the Cyder Barn itself can seat up to 40 people for more intimate celebrations.

The historic formal gardens of the manor house are the perfect setting for outdoor ceremonies, wedding receptions and lawn games.  They are also an incomparably romantic setting for larger weddings for up to 200 guests in a marquee. With their centuries-old clipped topiary and box parterres, they provide staggeringly beautiful views across to Owlpen Manor and Holy Cross church, a truly unique spot for your special occasion.

We welcome civil ceremonies and partnerships in the Great Hall of the Manor House, the formal gardens, or the Cyder Barn. These were licensed as Approved Premises under the Marriages and Civil Partnership Acts in 2015.

Enjoy peace and relaxation in nine boutique holiday cottages on the estate during your stay. All of the houses can be exclusively hired for your wedding party, providing accommodation for up to 40 guests. Ample parking is available for all your guests. For young revellers on a budget, there is plenty of space where your guests can camp in the meadows by arrangement.  We can also arrange glamping in our water meadows, all overseen by hand-picked local suppliers.
