About Friars Court

Clanfield, Bampton, Oxon

Seventeenth-century Friars Court has been a family home for generations and remains so to this day; its mediaeval origins were as a place of quiet rest for travelling pilgrims. The four acres of part-moated, landscaped grounds around the house remain a green and peaceful haven of tranquil seclusion which may now be hired as a venue for civil ceremonies and/ or receptions. To find out more visit the Silver Pear website as we do NOT produce a printed brochure.

My husband and I were married at Friars Court in June. It was perfect; the venue was stunning, with the garden in full bloom, and the whole day progressed exactly as planned, in no small part due to Jeffrey! Our meal and dancing was in the stone barn, which is a brilliant blank canvas, from which Jeffrey enabled us to create the perfect backdrop. We cannot recommend this venue enough! Loved it!

The most perfect day

We can't recommend Jeffrey and Silver Pear Weddings highly enough. Not only is Friars Court the most beautiful venue we could have hoped for but the help and advice Jeffrey gave us throughout was absolutely invaluable. Our wedding really wouldn't have been what it was without him. Lovely place and even lovelier people.

A Wonderful Venue

We had the most incredible day, and it was absolutely perfect for us. Not least in a large part for all the assistance Jeffrey gave us. The marquee looked fantastic, the barn looked incredible, although I don’t really remember it much – in the wedding giddiness everything really is a bit of a blur! Our guest have since have complimented us on how beautiful everything was, and that is largely down to Jeffrey (and Charles!). Friars Court is a fabulous place to have had our wedding, and not just because the grounds are beautiful, but because the help provided was invaluable. We genuinely couldn’t have hoped for more. Our wedding day was memorable for all the right reasons, and we really cannot thank Jeffrey enough for everything.

An absolute dream venue

Beautiful rustic venue which you can use as a blank canvass to turn into something which is unique and perfect to you. You can get married outside under the rose arbour surrounded by a slow flowing river then enjoy a proper barn reception all glistening with fairy lights. Jeffrey is the ultimate legend who makes every wedding an absolute dream.

We went to look around Friars Court, but unfortunately the dates weren''t right for us. However, the gardens are gorgeous and Jeffrey is wonderful and I just know he would do everything he could to make sure you had your perfect day. The atmosphere is really friendly and relaxed, but I can see you could have as formal or as informal a wedding as you wanted to here. I really recommend visiting and having a look at the website.
