With endless views over the surrounding Cotswold countryside and an abundance of charming quirks, The Bear of Rodborough Hotel boasts a setting to remember for your big day. We have a wonderful collection of rooms from which to host your wedding day at The Bear and 46 cosy bedrooms for your guests to stay the night. Combine all of this with great food, fizz and an enthusiastic team, and you’re sure to create the big day of your dreams. The Terrace Room is a light and open space, with room for up to 70 guests. Its neutral colour scheme allows you to take the reins when it comes to accessorising. As the name may suggest, the Terrace Room opens onto our garden terrace and marquee which will be reserved exclusively for your wedding party to enjoy reception drinks and canapes. The Library Restaurant is our largest space, with room for up to 90 guests. With its striking bookend wallpaper, abundance of great reads and stylish tartan carpet; wedding accessories can be kept to a minimum. With its sophisticated decor and beautiful arched windows, The Tower Room is a perfect space for smaller, intimate weddings. It is licensed for up to 26 people, but you can have much fewer if you prefer – we’re happy to provide witnesses. If you would like more information or a show-round, please speak to our dedicated wedding coordinator, Rose, who will be more than happy to help you.
