Great Fosters is a fine example of Elizabethan architecture. Set amongst 50 acres of stunning formal gardens, the hotel makes an ideal venue for a wedding ceremony and reception. This grand building became a hotel in the 1930s and has been sympathetically converted by the Sutcliffe Family. Great Fosters possesses a plethora of original details and features and is designated as a Scheduled Historic Monument and Grade 1 listed building. Tempting menus are combined with vintage wines to ensure that your wedding breakfast is a gourmet experience, while the hotel’s gardens – with a Japanese bridge, lake, fountain and Saxon moat – provide an idyllic backdrop for photographs. Following the celebrations, why not stay overnight in one of our 43 luxurious suites or rooms. Special room rates are available for wedding guests too. Our professional and experienced staff will be delighted to advise and assist in planning and organising an unforgettable day.

A big thanks..."I wanted to say a big thanks to all the team at Great Foster's for a fantastic wedding day. The service was friendly, seamless and effortless which ensured we could focus on having a great time. The staff went over and above with lots of small unexpected touches such as cake boxes so people could take some cake with them and one of the managers approaching the groom to get the first taste of the hog roast! At one point the DJ disappeared and one of the managers helped organise the first dance on time. All of our family and friends loved the venue and we got lots of compliments about the food and service as well. Thanks for making our day so special."

the most fantastic wedding day..."We just wanted to thank you for the most fantastic wedding day. It was just beautiful and everyone commented on the food, the service, and how magical the barn looked. It was absolutely our perfect day, and the staff could not have done more to make it run smoothly.
Victoria, thanks for all you support and answering our questions on the run up.
David, thank you for co-ordinating the day perfectly, from managing last minute drop outs, to moving decorations between rooms without being asked, and bringing Ali slippers when you saw she had taken off her shoes, an absolute lifesaver!
The whole day was amazing, so thank you and all your staff."
