Full Description
Upthorpe Wood is a Dry Hire woodland venue with tipis, set on the Suffolk/Norfolk border, 9 miles outside Bury St Edmunds. Our amazing package includes 3 day weekend exclusive hire and allows you to bring in your own suppliers and caterers although we can recommend some of the best in the area if need be. We have a great bar company which we require all our couples to use. Upthorpe Wood is the perfect Tipi 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 journey...an adventure. A wedding never to be forgotten! Set in 2 acres the venue is wheelchair accessible and includes all amenities. Our rustic barn seats up to 100 and our ceremony glade up to 80. 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.
