Built in 1898, Frensham Hall is a proud and beautiful building with a wonderful heritage. It has hosted fabulous house parties at the turn of the century, been a sanctuary for wounded soldiers from the Great War like the fictional Downton Abbey and has provided the perfect backdrop to hundreds of weddings, receptions and celebrations.

Within the main building, you will find an Edwardian ballroom complete with Minstrels’ Gallery, a gorgeous Louis XVI drawing room and a Jacobean hall with baronial fireplace. All three are licensed for marriages. The house is also blessed with stunning grounds, including a beautiful terrace, an intimate walled garden and outstanding views. Our walled gardens are now fully licensed for ceremonies if you would prefer to have something outdoors.

You will have the added advantage of an expert wedding coordinator to help you turn your vision for your day into a reality – and, if you need them, we have carefully selected a range of local businesses able to provide some of the other essentials for the day.

As part of a school the venue is only available for certain dates throughout the year. In peak season there is a minumum capacity of 85 adults. Other times of year we can quote you individually.

    A Venue that puts the couple first

    Where to start… our wedding was originally booked for April 18 2020 and we ended up re-arranging 4 times. Frensham were so amazingly flexible with us, their goal was to ensure that we had the wedding we had always envisioned. It was so refreshing to work with a venue that really put us as a couple first. When you visit Frensham Hall it sells itself as the venue is just stunning, but on top of that, the food, the service and our wedding managers Kerry / Andrew were absolutely brilliant. This venue has so many positives, to name a few: exclusive use for the weekend; beautiful grounds and house; insane flexibility; the most delicious menu; extremely reasonable pricing; fantastic bar and service; excellent wedding managers. We honestly can’t thank Frensham enough for allowing us to have the most incredible day. I would thoroughly recommend Frensham to anyone!!

    Wedding 14 August 2021

    We had such a great experience getting married at Frensham Hall. The wedding coordinator, Kerry made everything so easy and calmed all of our nerves. It was stressful planning a wedding in the midst of Covid and Frensham was so kind in allowing us to postpone and helping to make everything come together smoothly. Nothing ever seems like too much trouble. We are so grateful that we picked Frensham.

    Andrew was wonderful at coordinating everything on the day and everything ran like clockwork. It was such a professional and friendly team and many of our guests commented on how attentive and friendly all the staff were. The food was also excellent – we can’t praise everything enough!

    We have recommended Frensham to our friends and can’t speak highly enough about our experience. It was such a joyful day and we have such happy memories.

    Beautiful venue, amazing staff

    Wow! What can I say? Two postponements later and finally Frensham Heights gave us the wedding day of our dreams. I cannot find a single thing to fault Frensham Heights (soon to be Frensham Hall!) for. Everything was excellent from the communication, to the food to the professionalism of the staff. The venue is utterly stunning with views to die for and the price of every aspect is so reasonable. Our guests only had lovely things to say about the staff, venue and food who all went above an beyond to ensure that our dream wedding came true after all that waiting and worry. You'll have the most perfect day if you are lucky enough to have FH as your venue!

    Lovely place, felt very welcoming and flexible

    We were due to have our wedding in May 2020, which unfortunately was changed heavily due to Covid. Kerry and the team at Frensham did everything they could and were even ready to put the finance staff to work helping with the day if it came to it! During the prep and planning stages we felt all of our requests were listened to and the staff were supportive in putting everything in place. They even allowed us to design our own starters, canapés and evening menu giving some lovely personal touches. The venue offered a level of flexibility that many we looked at didn't, and we were confident that it would have been a stunning day if our plans didn't have to change!

    We would highly recommend Frensham Heights and would like to thank Kerry and the team.

    Perfect Summer Wedding

    We got married in August 2018 at this beautiful venue and had the most perfect day. Our guests were amazed by the building and the spectacular view. All the food was delicious and plentiful. Kerry was a pleasure to converse with, replying to emails quickly and reassuring us in the months leading up to the wedding. We were able to get in to the venue to set up days before the wedding which helped take the pressure off. Chloe made sure everything ran smoothly on the day, so we didn’t need to stress over anything and could just enjoy ourselves. All the staff were very professional and accommodating. Nothing we requested was ever an issue. It is a fantastic venue!

    Beautiful Frensham Heights

    Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding day the most special and memorable day of our lives. We cannot thank you enough for all the effort you made for us from seeing us several times to agree the food menu plus being so thoughtful with all the planning. We loved our day and we know that without your hard work it wouldn't have been nearly as great as it was.

    50th Birthday Celebrations

    We booked Frensham Heights for my 50th Birthday celebrations. I must say, the venue, service, food and all the staff were fantastic! We had a tribute act and a live band for the evening entertainment. They were looked after equally as well, which is very important when booking these type of acts.
    Although we didn't have a sit down dinner, we were recommended "bowl food" mid-evening, for when our guests were getting hungry.......everyone loved it! No one complained there was not enough. The presentation and quality of the food was first-class.
    The venue itself is lovely, and the views out the back are incredible. Thank you Frensham (in particular Kerry), we are looking for an excuse to hold another party already!

    Arnell wedding, September 2017!

    My husband and I (!!) got married at Frensham Heights in September 2017. We were originally drawn to the beautiful setting and choice of grand, spacious rooms to get married in. As we were having a civil ceremony and reception in the same location, we wanted somewhere with flexibility and the ‘wow’ factor. Frensham Heights had it all, and when we met Kerry Guy, coordinator at the venue, we couldn’t have been happier with our choice. Kerry was fantastic and really helped the planning process to go smoothly. She was always on hand to answer my questions and concerns, and did everything she could to make sure our day was perfect for us. We had seen other lovely venues, but they didn’t seem to offer quite the personal and bespoke service that Frensham Heights does. Added to this, the food was exceptional and we received lots of compliments on the quality of the wedding breakfast, many saying it was the best meal they’d had at a wedding! We were also able to have fireworks and confetti without any problems, and found that the exclusive weekend hire meant we had plenty of time to set up the day before, and return for one last look the day after! One of the greatest benefits of Frensham Heights, in my opinion, is not only the beautiful setting, but the wonderful interior too. No matter the weather on your special day, you will have beautiful photos indoors and out. If you are considering Frensham Heights as your wedding venue I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it!

    Lovely venue, grounds and food

    I found this venue on Hitched and immediately liked the building and grounds which were spacious enough to cater for the large party we had (130) without needing to erect and pay for an additional separate marque. The view from the gardens are amazing and we loved the walled garden which is where we had our blessing. We were also impressed by the competitive pricing for the catering (wedding breakfast) versus other venues we had looked at. Kerry Guy was on hand from the start to help us plan the big day step by step and the venue was flexible to our needs and vision for the event. The food actually exceeded expectations and we have several complements from guests on the food. Chris the chef was fantastic and despite the large party was very consistent in presentation and detail orientated. Great job - thank you very much to all who helped make it such a good day.
