Full 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.

Cannot fault Great Fosters
We had the absolute best day, and just cannot fault Great Fosters for everything you did for us. The guests were blown away by the whole event, especially and most importantly...the venue, which is how we've felt about the place for years.

Absolutely brilliant!
Marc and I would like to thank you and the whole team at Great Fosters. Everything went amazingly , all details were just perfect and nothing was missed. Both rooms looked beautiful and I must say as I walked into the Barn I was pretty overwhelmed by how stunning it looked. I only have you and the team to thank for that. Our guests kept saying how brilliant the staff were and how every detail/ any additional requests were no bother. I must say I have not been to another hotel which matches the level of service the team delivered , they were all just amazing. Please do pass on our thanks, forward this email to everyone, it truly was the best day of our lives , I couldn't have imagined having it in any other venue.
