Full Description
Owlpen Manor in its hidden private valley is the "paradise incomparable on earth", wrote the great poet Algernon Charles Swinburne. Set your wedding in this Cotswold paradise- barn, gardens and marquees provide romance and spoiling intimacy for a never-to-be-forgotten day! The Owlpen team will work with you to create your own bespoke package. We will be on hand to take care of you and your family throughout the entire process, ensuring your day is tailored exactly to your wishes. Owlpen is an exclusive and adaptable setting for any special occasion. Everwhere you look there are inexhaustible photo opportunities against a spectacular Cotswold backdrop. Offering a number of magical locations for your civil ceremony, wedding reception, dancing and dining, the estate is exclusively yours for the entire weekend. Receptions can be held for just 20 and up to 200. The site is licensed and we offer a superb range of selected wines; we can also run a pay-bar when requested. The Cyder House with its gigantic oak cider press and cruck trusses is a uniquely flexible and intimate setting for up to 120 guests with an adjoining marquee. For smaller and more intimate weddings the Cyder House itself can seat up to 48 people. The manor gardens are 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. Civil ceremonies and partnerships are held in the Great Hall of the Manor House or the Cyder House. These were licensed as Approved Premises under the Marriages and Civil Partnership Acts in 2015. We are happy for you to come and have a simple ceremony here without having to have any refreshments afterwards. Or, you are welcome to have your ceremony followed by a drinks reception, or a sit down dinner. Either way, it's your day and your choice!
