    Detailed Description

    Probably built as a Royal Hunting lodge and very much a stately home since the 16th century, Great Fosters is a Grade One listed building blessed with the grandeur of 16th century England and luxurious modern facilities. The romantic gardens provide an idyllic backdrop for photographs and the hotel has 43 bedrooms and is licensed for both indoor and outdoor ceremonies.

    The Tithe Barn, dating from 1390, accommodates up to 180 guests for a wedding breakfast whilst the Orangery, in the style of the eighteenth century, accommodates up to 80 guests.

    Food at Great Fosters is important to us whether we are catering for two or two hundred. We put the same emphasis on our wedding menus as we do for our restaurants and our talented kitchen brigade take great pride in creating dishes that not only look fabulous but also exceed your expectations on the taste front too.

    From your initial enquiry our experienced wedding co-ordinators will work with you to create the memorable day you have always imagined.
