About Frensham Heights

Rowledge, Farnham
Surrey, GU10 4EA

Built in 1898, Frensham Heights 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.

Lovely Autumn Wedding

Perfect Summer Wedding
Venue Service

By Suzy, on 23 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 25 Aug 2018

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
Venue Service

By Nick and Jo, on 26 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 14 Jul 2018

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
Venue Service

By Alan Betteridge, on 10 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 16 Dec 2017

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!

Thank you!!

Arnell wedding, September 2017!
Venue Service

By Clare Arnell, on 08 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Sep 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
Venue Service

By Jeannine Daniel, on 12 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 03 Sep 2016

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.

Purton Wedding
Venue Service

By Lisa and Ross Purton, on 10 Mar 2017Date of Wedding - 27 Aug 2016

We got married at Frensham Heights in August 2016 and had the most perfect day! The venue is a beautiful building inside and out. I cant thank Kerry Guy enough who helped us have the best day ever, she helped us with every little detail that we hadn't even thought of, always made us feel relaxed, and I love the fact that Frensham Heights allocate one wedding per weekend, which meant we could come into the venue from the Thursday before and prepare to get things ready for our wedding on the Saturday. I would also like to thank Kate who was our wedding planner, who took all our plans for the day in hand, which made our day even more perfect. Kerry and the teams flexibility set them apart from other venues we visited which made it our special day rather than one that was chosen within the strict constraints that certain venues seem to adhere to, we really felt we were in control of our own wedding.

Perfect venue for our summer wedding
Venue Service

By Lorien and Adam Robinson, on 19 Sep 2012

Frensham Heights was the perfect venue for our Summer wedding. From the initial visit Kerry Guy ensured we felt a top priority. We were able to view the venue a number of times to make decisions, taste dishes and discuss ideas. All our requests were met and our wedding day ran so smoothly thanks to the professionalism of the staff. Philip Locklyer was on hand to help throughout the day, whilst maintaining a discreet presence. The stunning grounds and views of the Surrey Hills allowed our guests to enjoy croquet and drinks on the lawn as well as being the perfect setting for our wedding photos. Inside the venue the Ballroom was perfect for our sit down meal as well as providing a dance floor for our evening disco. The Drawing Room was ideal for those who wanted to sit and chat more quietly and the Long Gallery allowed all our guests to watch us cut the cake alongside a live pianist playing the grand piano. After the wedding any forgotten items were stored safely until we could collect them. We have received such positive feedback from all our guests and I would definitely recommend Frensham Heights as a wedding venue to friends.

Perfect venue
Venue Service

By David Laraway, on 14 Sep 2011

We knew this would be our venue from the outset. The building stunning and views are stunning. Kate and her staff are organised and communication between all parties was excellent, everything was made so easy and took out a lot of the stress of the arrangements. They are a really good crew and Kate knows her stuff. Nothing was too much trouble and their list of reliable companies took a lot of leg work out of preparing for our perfect day. The food they supplied for the Wedding breakfast was exceptional. We still have guests comment on the dishes and that’s over a year after the event. The dishes were better quality than many top end restaurants and Chris the chef is a marvel. The tasting afternoon was a highlight of the arrangements process. TIP – skip breakfast on tasting day. We tasted a range of canapés and dishes and then took some time to choose our preferences. We provided our own wine and Champagne but that was our choice as Frensham can get whatever you want. The rooms inside can accommodate all your guests and there are some great photo opportunities by the huge stone fireplace, on the stairs against the dark wooden panelling or the Wedgewood style drawing room. Every penny spent was more than worth it and the whole event was excellent value for money. Our guests were as thrilled as we were and have even sent us letters of thanks for being invited to what they have called the best wedding they have ever been to. If you choose this venue you not only get the stunning venue but much more.
