We have a great bar company which we require all our couples to use. Upthorpe Wood is the perfect woodland wedding venue for the Couple looking for something totally different and extraordinary, we are proud to announce that untraditional and quirky rock our boat and therefore, we're a wedding venue unlike any other venue around, Upthorpe Wood will lead you on a adventure. A wedding never to be forgotten! Set in 2 acres the venue is wheelchair accessible and includes all amenities. Our rustic barn and cartlodge along with a woodland chill out lounge provide loads of undercover space, more than enough for all your guests. Holding just 15 weddings a year we are an exclusive venue and love it when our couples get creative with the space. Our hire period is for 3 days over the weekend so allows plenty of time to decorate and clear down, we also have a campsite for guests to stay over and a cute little Cabin for couples to use as a honeymoon suite.
