The Georgian manor house is more than just a beautiful wedding venue. With exclusive hire available, the venue acts as your home for the day to ensure that your day is as relaxing and enjoyable as it should be.

While the manor has an intimate atmosphere, there is also an undeniable grandeur to the venue. The high ceilings, spacious rooms and opulent décor provide an impressive setting for the day.

We can accommodate smaller, more intimate ceremonies in a variety of our licensed rooms within the house. Larger celebrations can enjoy the use of our generous Banqueting Hall and stunning, chandelier-lit Pavilion. For outdoor events, our gazebo is fully licensed to hold your ceremony within our beautiful grounds.

The Banqueting Hall can seat up to 500 guests under a stunning starlit ceiling. The flexible space is ideal for large celebrations but can also be partitioned for smaller events.

When your day is sadly over, you can enjoy your very own luxury bridal cottage. Your friends and family can also choose to stay with us at Fennes in one of our seven guest rooms.

No stress or worries
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs bridges, on 19 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 05 Apr 2017

We were looking for a pride and prejudice feel on a smaller scale and we're not disappointed. From the moment we booked the date we had correspondence. Appointments to talk through arrangements and copies of all the arrangements. We were not rushed and the team were fantastic in understanding our vision for the day. Having the ceremony and reception at the same venue eased stress for us and the guests but the meal being included and the evening buffet as well as the finer details such as chair covers and sash of our choice just made the experience smooth running. They worked amazingly well with suppliers including the photographer. Cake and flower company we chose. Nothing was to much for them and they ensures everything went to plan without a hitch. Everyone complemented the venue and we're impressed with the quality of food which was superb. They make little touches throughout the day and evening which was very touching. My only criticism for the venue is the cost of the guest rooms which are expensive especially when you have places like premiere Inn a few miles out which is half the price but apart from this I can't fault the venue or the staff team for all they did for us. Everyone told me I would be getting stressed to the run up to the wedding but everything was taken care of ensuring we could just enjoy our day.

We had a fantastic wedding!

We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who was involved with our wedding day at Fennes. It truly was a magical day. Everything was perfect. Our Wedding and Events Manager was fabulous and made everything run like clock work. Every single guest was complimenting the venue, staff and food.

By Mr and Mrs Dorward, on 12 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 31 May 2016

People often ask how was your wedding? When you can turn around and say perfect, then you know the day was magical! This would not have been the case without the venue and team who supported, advised and resolved everything and anything. Thank you just isn't enough!
