One of the nicest things about a wedding is being surrounded by your family and friends. If you have a wedding venue with accommodation, it means your guests can stay over with you, you can keep the party going late into the night and you can all enjoy breakfast together the next day.
We’ve put together some of our favourite wedding venues with accommodation across the country. If you want even more ideas, make sure you check out our round-up of the best hotel wedding venues.
