    Perfect venue

    We couldn't have picked a better venue for our wedding. The grounds are stunning, surrounded by picturesque countryside. The house is beautiful, with so much care and attention paid to every room. We really loved being able to stay at Broadfield with our friends and family before and after the wedding. What made Broadfield truly great was the work that the venue's Director Frances did both before and on the big day to ensure it was a success. Working with Frances in the run up was so easy, she was so great at helping us find suppliers and think through the day. Her help really allowed us to put our own stamp on the occasion. We had planned to have much of the day outside, but unfortunately the weather turned wet at the very last moment. Frances went above to work out how we could adapt our plans for the wet weather. Couldn't recommend Broadfield highly enough.

    The most perfect, versatile wedding venue. Brilliantly run

    We got married here in May 2022 with 133 guests.

    It's an amazing venue. Nestled in the Herefordshire countryside (with only rolling hills and no buildings in sight). Recently refurbished beautifully (to a high standard and with very stylish decor and furniture).

    The house itself is perfect for a stay with family / friends but it has other trimmings to make it perfect for big weddings too; such as the multiple locations which are licensed for weddings, the separate barn with a bar, toilets and a catering kitchen.

    There are also so many unique spaces you can use as part of your day. We had our wedding in the woods, drinks reception in the rose garden, and wedding breakfast in tipis in the field. But there are also many other spaces that are great for weddings (e.g. a courtyard, a large dining room and more fields).

    One of the best parts of this venue however, is the people who own and run it. Frances and Alex (and Fran's parents Helen and John) were absolutely incredible every step of the way. They really understand hospitality and helped us to think of everything to ensure our week's stay there, and wedding, went smoothly.

    They are also wonderfully flexible and will help you to realise the wedding you imagine, either by using their roster of suppliers or bringing in your own. We wanted a DIY wedding instead of a package and they were fine with this. In the end, most of the suppliers we used came recommended by the Broadfield team and they were all fantastic.

    It's a truly magic wedding venue. I wish we could go back and do it again!

    Broadfield's reply:

    It was a total pleasure to host your celebrations, we loved having you stay at Broadfield and it was brilliant to see you get hitched. Please come back in future!

    Wonderful venue with great flexibility

    We loved having Broadfield as our wedding venue. The house and grounds are beautiful and the perfect spot for an outdoor ceremony and reception. We also really appreciated the flexibility and personal touch that we enjoyed throughout the planning process. Instead of offering a rigid package, Helen took the time to find out what we had in mind and turn it into a reality – including holding the ceremony somewhere that they hadn’t tried before. She was also careful to understand every detail of our plans, so the day itself ran perfectly and felt very relaxed, with the staff providing great hospitality and support behind the scenes. The only things we would suggest are that the corkage is high compared to other venues we considered, and a few more of the house extras like Z-beds could be priced into the general hire price. But all in all, we were completely delighted with Broadfield and feel very lucky to have spent such a magical weekend there! Thank you Helen, John, Fran and Alex!

    Broadfield's reply:

    Hi Maggie. Thanks so much for your kind review and thank you for your suggestions.
    We are so pleased that you enjoyed your day, after all it was YOUR special day, and that 's what's important.
    Do you have any photos yet at all? We would love to see some and if you are happy for us to do so, we would very much like to share some on our social media.
    I hope you've had the chance to enjoy the sunny weather this weekend, it's been glorious here!
    Very best wishes
    Helen

    Perfect wedding day

    My (now) husband and I chose Broadfield as our wedding venue after visiting in February 2020 and falling in love with everything on offer: the gardens, indoor rooms, woodland, lawns (the list goes on).
    Throughout the next 18 months of planning Helen and the rest of the Broadfield team were always on hand to help, and nothing was ever too much. When we needed to postpone due to Covid, Helen was understanding and offered us another date. When we decided to have a canopy in the fold yard (quite last minute), Helen helped to provide a list of local suppliers. The same for catering, flowers and hair/make up.
    Our guests loved the wedding venue and they all commented on how seamless and easy going the whole day was, which is testament to Helen and her team's support and thorough planning. We wish we could get married again!

    If you’re after a quality wedding venue in Herefordshire, look no further than Broadfield Court.

    We held our wedding reception at Broadfield Court in July 2021. We shortlisted a number of venues in the area but we visited Broadfield first and then cancelled all the other viewings because we knew this was the one. The house and grounds are stunning, and the whole surrounding is tranquil (no aeroplane routes, motorways or trainlines in earshot). The team (Helen, Fran, John, Alex) run a very professional ship and were always on hand to deal with queries in the run up to the day, and were very accommodating in letting us visit multiple times and benefit from Helen’s advice. We were married when some covid restrictions were still in place and the Broadfield team handled this with great proficiency. The house and grounds were in perfect condition on the day – it couldn’t have gone better. We loved it so much we’d like to rent the house for Christmases/ New Years/ wedding anniversaries in years to come. It was very hard to leave! If you’re after a quality wedding venue in Herefordshire I’d look no further than Broadfield Court.

    Incredible!

    From start to finish, everything about Broadfield was amazing. Frances and Alex were so incredibly helpful throughout covid and the multiple postponements we had to cope with. The venue itself is glorious. We couldn’t have asked for more to make our wedding perfect. We’d do it all again in a heartbeat. Perfectly perfect!

    Just fabulous

    Broadfield is the most idyllic venue and we couldn’t have chosen a more perfect place to host our wedding.
    It’s grand and outstandingly beautiful whilst homely and welcoming at the same time. The house inside is beautifully decorated, just stunning and the grounds are equally stunning with breathtaking views.
    Fran and Alex were amazing throughout, from the first meeting to the day we checked out, nothing was missed, they thought of everything and nothing was ever too much trouble. They were so organised but so relaxed at the same time. They gave us a wedding better than we ever could have dreamed which was a pleasure to plan.
    Thank you so much Broadfield, you really are the perfect wedding venue.

    Couldn’t have been better

    We had our wedding at Broadfield and it was simply the loveliest weekend. It’s owners (particularly Frances) could not have been more helpful - she made the whole wedding planning experience totally easy and stress free & we felt very reassured on the day knowing she was there to ensure everything went smoothly. She is just fab! The venue itself is so so beautiful. We wanted something special but not too austere/fussy and that’s exactly what Broadfield is - you’re made to feel completely at home there. So many of our guests commented on how lovely the found the venue. We honestly couldn’t have chosen a better venue & I would highly recommend it. We can’t wait to return for house stays for anniversary. Thank you so much Broadfield!

    The best of the best!

    What an incredibly special venue Broadfield is. We got married in Bishops Frome church and held our reception for 170 people at Broadfield. Bubbles in the rose garden followed by the wedding breakfast in Tipis on the lawn. People were exploring, playing croquet and cricket, it was all so amazing. All to the backdrop of beautiful Herefordshire countryside.

    Fran and Alex were insanely helpful from start to finish, liaising with suppliers, setting everything up and ensuring the whole day ran smoothly. Most of the suppliers (Tipis - Java Tipis & Caterers - A 2 Zest) came recommended by Broadfield and couldn’t have been better. We cannot thank them enough for all that they did.

    We had the house from Friday to Sunday and both of our families were able to stay in the gorgeous rooms for the whole weekend which was perfect.

    All in all we cannot recommend Broadfield highly enough, it truly is the perfect venue.

    Broadfield's reply:

    Thanks so much for the very kind review, it was honestly such a delight to host your and Fi's wedding and we really hope you'll come back to stay sometime!

    Perfect winter wedding venue

    As a couple we had never wanted a traditional wedding so instead decided to have a small ceremony at Gretna Green and then a house hire with a wedding party on the Saturday night. Broadfield is a beautiful house and being close to home was the perfect location for our party. The rooms have been tastefully decorated in keeping with the age of the house. 9 bedrooms allowed us to spend the weekend with some of our closest friends and the cosy sitting rooms with open fires were the perfect place to catch up.
    We hired a marquee for the tilt yard with a ceilidh band as our entertainment which meant everyone got up and dancing and I would recommend a ceilidh as your entertainment. The evening went ahead without a single problem thanks to the team of staff on hand that evening.
    The team at Broadfield provide as much help with the planning as you require.

    Exceptional

    Broadfield is INCREDIBLE!
    We had a winter micro wedding during the day and a larger party at night. Frances and her family couldn't have been more helpful. Communication was spot on, advice and guidance when asked, friendly and professional. When our big day arrived they worked extremely hard and I felt totally relaxed and at ease, it was perfect.
    Broadfield as a venue, just wow! I stayed on the Friday night with family and friends and then my husband joined us for the second night. The whole stay was a real treat. The house and gardens are stunning and the attention to detail is exact. Cleanliness and comfort is 5*
    Our party ranged from age 3 to 73 and everyone had a wonderful time.
    If you are looking for a wedding venue or somewhere luxurious to stay Broadfield is the most magical place. You will not be disappointed.

    Wedding blessing and reception

    Frances and Alex are incredibly helpful and so well organised. They were efficient and helped the day to go perfectly.
    The house and grounds are stunning and the setting is amazing. All of our guests commented on how beautiful it is. Having the ceremony in the woods was just magical.
    The accommodation is spacious and so comfortable. The kitchen well equipped and the facilities for adults and children alike are excellent. They really have thought of everything. We can’t wait to come back for a holiday some time.
