About Glenfall House

Mill Lane
Charlton Kings, Cheltenham
Gloucestershire, GL54 4EP

Glenfall House is a beautiful venue dedicated to hosting weddings and events.

Dating back to the 18th Century, this breath-taking private Manor House with its beautiful driveway, 4-acres of stunning gardens and grounds, and views over rolling Cotswold Hills has been lovingly restored to cater for luxury exclusive-use weddings and celebrations.

Glenfall House will be exclusively yours, and whether you are planning a lavish summer wedding, or an intimate winter ceremony, we pride ourselves on being able to offer something special and unique for every couple, whatever your budget.

On arrival, we are able to arrange or a beautician to come to your room where you and your bridal party will have the chance to indulge with pampering and beauty treatments whilst getting ready.

Guests can be greeted inside the Main Hall or in one or several of our drawing rooms or outside on the terrace overlooking the gardens.

The Glen is a stunning ceremony room with panoramic views over cascading gardens. However, outside, The Alcove features a unique stone arch located under the hanging wysteria in a private garden, making it the most beautiful setting for an outdoor wedding on a glorious summer day.

Several other bright rooms in the main house are licenced including the Main Hall with its grand piano and large patio doors, offering a truly magical atmosphere in which to undertake your vows. 

The elegant reception rooms offer you several different environments for you and your guests to relax and this, coupled with our wonderful gardens and terrace, provides all weather options for a beautiful drinks reception.

We understand that the food is also an important element to your wedding so we're always happy to discuss your preferences including special dietary requirements.

Our natural light-filled ballroom opens out onto the South Gardens offering a wonderful vista for your 3-course banquet, speeches and cake cutting before you dance the evening away with extra guests at your evening reception.

As your magical day draws to a close, you and your guests can retire to our 21 luxurious bedrooms and suites, all with brand new en-suite facilities. Choose from two elegant honeymoon suites for your first night.

In the next morning throw back the curtains and enjoy the spectacular views before joining your closest friends and family for your full Cotswold breakfast. Let us know in advance and we can arrange for Champagne or special celebratory drinks at breakfast, or why not enjoy a more relaxed full Celebration Brunch!

It is our philosophy to be extremely flexible and creative, working alongside you both, to understand what you like and dislike, hear your plans and wildest ideas, so that we can help you to create the unique day of your dreams.

At Glenfall House we want you to enjoy the day to its best, so ask us about our extensive range of props and decorations which are currently available to use free of charge.

Glenfall House recently won the Best Countryside Venue in the South West of England in the National Wedding Industry Awards and the Wedding Industry's Best Venue in Gloucestershire award. This has been thanks to our previous couples who have left us the most wonderfull feedback - we trust you'll have an equally wonderful time with us.

It truly is just outstanding!
Venue Service

By Tara & Kevin, on 27 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 25 May 2019

Myself and my now husband Kevin (woop) had our wedding at Glenfall 2 weeks ago and wow! It's the most beautiful venue we could have ever asked for. The garden and the building (and view) is just picturesque. It truly is just outstanding! Not to mention Dianne and her staff, they all did an absolute fantastic job of looking after us and covering our needs from the moment we first met them over a year ago right up until the end of breakfast the next morning. If we wanted something they would do their best to get it. There was nothing we were not happy with. If we could have that day back again we really would. The most magical day of our lives. Thank you Team Glenfall.

Very proud Father of the Bride!

Charlotte did a very good job and we much appreciated your flexibility in accommodating the more relaxed, individual style that Matt and Phoebe wanted for their wedding day. We made full use of the gardens as the weather became kinder and sun did shine. Both Tim and Firebird did a very professional job , fitting into our format. All round was a pleasure having the Glenfall Team help with their wedding

Glenfall is our home
Venue Service

By Colin & Sue, on 13 May 2019Date of Wedding - 11 May 2019

In Switzerland now, but the pace has eased haha, so thought it was time to just say a massive thank you to you and the team. I can't find the right words to describe the extraordinary way in which you've left us feeling that Glenfall is our home, and that you, Charlotte and Gideon are our family - amazing! I guess by next week you'll have done it all over again, and the world moves on; but for us that feeling will be frozen in time forever. A perfect day - thank you!!

Top Notch 10 out of 10
Venue Service

By Emma and Jules, on 05 May 2019Date of Wedding - 11 Apr 2019

I cannot praise Glenfall and all their lovely team enough for planning, providing and delivering the best day of our lives in April 2019. The staff could not have done more for us, the venue was sublime, the grounds gorgeous and the whole experience was just wonderful. If you want a glamorous but unpretentious venue, look no further. It feels like a luxury hotel whilst feeling like you're at home for a party with your loved ones. I am happy for anyone to contact me and ask about the experience. Top notch 10/10.

We had the most incredible weekend!
Venue Service

By Kylie and Alex, on 27 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 30 Mar 2019

Where to start? We had the most incredible weekend we could of ever wished for, Thank-you. Glenfall House was the perfect venue for our wedding because Diane and her team were so accommodating and flexible with meeting our vision. The house and the grounds are stunning and speak for themselves, we got married in March and managed to be outside. Charlotte was new to the team at Glenfall house for our wedding, but she couldn’t have been more helpful and is the reason our wedding went so smoothly. Gideon ran the bar and did a fantastic job, learning how to make our special cocktail. A comment that keeps coming up from our guests is that the venue allowed our wedding to be so personal and everywhere you looked it was all about us. Thank-you Glenfall House for helping us to make memories that will last forever.

Came to Glenfall as a bride, left as a friend
Venue Service

By Rachel, on 16 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 26 Jan 2019

From the first time I stepped into Glenfall House we felt totally relaxed and at home. We met Dianne (the owner) for our first viewing (of many, as we tool all our family and bridal party up to look around), she was there every time we visited, and made us feel welcome very single time. Happy to chat through our ideas and give us advise on what would work, or not work, (we wanted to have our meal at 3pm and ceremony at 2pm, had forgotten we needed time for photos!) Every step of the way through our planning she was there to help, and then helped us on our wedding day - we felt so privileged having her help us - but then found out she does it with everyone - so that every couple that books at Glenfall is as lucky and privileged as we were Venue is amazing, Glenfall team is fantastic, views are wonderful Suggest you book !

Clear and professional
Venue Service

By Louise, on 10 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 05 Jan 2019

I have just booked my wedding at Glenfall House. Right from the very first email I received from them, they were clear and professional with what they offered...which in summary is almost anything! I didn’t want a sit down meal...not a problem, I wanted to have outdoor games...not a problem, I wanted an outside bar...not a problem, and so it went on Just love the venue, the views are to die for, and Dianne and her team are just awesome. If you haven’t your wedding venue, then contact Glenfall, it should be the first on your list!

Fantastic communications
