Abbots Oak Manor is a grand historic grade II listed brick and stone building, dating back to the 1500s. The manor started as a small chapel which was part of the Garendon Abbey estate in Loughborough and has since been extended and changed over the years, eventually becoming the stunning wedding venue it is today. Abbots Oak Manor offers not only the chance to say ‘I do’ in a beautiful setting, but the opportunity to become a part of its fascinating history.
The charming building became almost derelict in 2013 and was in great need of repair when the current owners decided to renovate it, giving it a new purpose as a romantic and traditional country wedding venue.
The manor house is set within beautiful walled gardens, where the monks once taught the local children. The house itself offers a carved, oak staircase which were reputedly taken from 58 Pall Mall house in London, which is where Nell Gwynn lived as a mistress for Charles 11.
There is a choice of two stunning rooms to say your vows; The Cedar Room offers oak panels, chandeliers and an open fire, and can accommodate up to 50 guests. The Garden Room is a light and contemporary room, offering views and access to the garden and can accommodate up to 120 guests. The oaks panelled rooms, open fires, and Tudor staircase coupled with the simplistic styling offer a historic yet contemporary feel.
When it comes to continuing your celebrations, you can enjoy a glass of bubbly within the beautiful walled gardens in the summer or cosy up next to the fireplace in the winter. The talented catering team will then cook up an impressive wedding breakfast for you and your guests to enjoy.
Set in the heart of rural Leicestershire, the manor offers views of Charnwood Forest, a magical backdrop for your wedding photographs and a fantastic place for your guests to explore. To come and see this wonderful setting for yourself, get in contact with the friendly team.
